LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- In a statement released Monday from the Koch family it says everything is still in the beginning phases but that the family is interested in finding out more about the options of Kentucky Kingdom's future.

The Koch’s have owned Holiday World and Splashin' Safari in Southern Indiana since 1946 and say they are always looking for ways to expand their business.

Kentucky Kingdom shut down in 2010 after the operator, at the time Six Flags, filed for bankruptcy.  Investors and even city efforts to reopen the park have all failed.

A spokesperson for the Koch family tells me as of Monday night she did not believe the Koch family had made any offers yet to take over the park.
