LOUISVILLE, Ky. -A computer glitch at Kroger stores has Kentucky Kingdom extending the season pass discount offer. 

The issue has been tracked to a malfunction with the software system provided to Kroger by an outside vendor.

The amusement park is trying to make things right after a large number of area Kroger stores were unable to sell Kentucky Kingdom season passes during the theme park’s initial “early bird” discount period, which ended June 3.

Ed Hart, President and CEO of Kentucky Kingdom, said, “We value our season pass holders and their dedication to the park and, as always, we look forwarding to hosting them this summer as Kentucky Kingdom celebrates its 30th anniversary.” 

Kentucky Kingdom is now offering discount season passes for purchase to accommodate those who missed the opportunity at Kroger.

Kentucky Kingdom will offer season passes for $69.95 each through June 30.  This represents a discount of $30 off the regular season pass price of $99.95, which will go into effect on July 1.  Season passes can be purchased online here or at the park any time during operating hours.
