Kentucky Kingdom to open Saturday after power outage Friday

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – A crash on Crittenden Drive led to a power outage at Kentucky Kingdom on Friday, May 19.

A car ran into a pole on Crittenden Drive. The crash happened at 12:06 p.m.

At one point the power was out at the Kentucky Exposition Center and Kentucky Kingdom.

Kentucky Kingdom closed Friday because they could not get power to the whole park after the crash. 

The park says they were supposed to host 3,000 students as part of an outdoor "Education in Motion" event Friday.

The park says they provided complimentary tickets to the students. This will give the students the option to return any day during the park's 2017 season. Lunch was provided to the students as well. Park officials say some had traveled from far away for the event.

They will open at 11 a.m. Saturday.
