Details

Categories:
Location:The South Elkhorn Baptist Church on what is presently Route 60 (Versailles Road) is located next to the former park.  The course of Route 60 was altered when it was converted to a four lane highway.  It is believed Route 60 now goes over the area once occupied by the park.
History:Opened around 1910.
Notes:Bluegrass Park may have had a second roller coaster at one time.  Richard Munch's 1991 Roller Coaster Directory mentions a "Giant Dipper" built around 1922 by "Pearce".  Based on other information it is suspected that this may have been another name for the original Scenic Railway.  So just one roller coaster is being listed here until more conclusive information can be found.
