Kentucky Kingdom And Hurricane Bay Under New Management

Kentucky’s Tourism Cabinet sent out an advisory Monday saying there’s a new “vision” and new management for the park, and now we know a little more about what that means. They are looking to “bring enhanced entertainment and amusement park management experience to the park.”


Georgia-based Herschend Family Entertainment was announced as the new majority owner today, which also owns the Newport Aquarium, Dollywood and the Harlem Globetrotters. Now don’t panic if you have already purchased passes for this year, because you can still use them. No changes will be made to the current season pass plan.  Craig Ross, Dollywood’s president for the past decade, will serve as Kentucky Kingdom’s interim General Manager. He mentioned he’s seen comments on social media about Dollywood’s iconic “cinnamon bread”, so that could turn up on the menu!!
