Visitor Tips and News About Funtown Mountain
The same owners of Why Louisville also own Funtown Mountain. This place is filled with crazy, unique and unusual stuff! The staff are so fun. We played Glow Golf and also did the tour of the Haunted House, which is one of the oldest haunted attractions in the world.[ShutterGirl, 08/08/2015]
Funtown Mountain is a creative work-in-progress, with some attractions open at the bottom of the hill. They hope to get the mountaintop opened in 2016.
Will Russell let us know the latest on his Guntown Mountain project. He's in the final negotiations purchasing the classic Cave City attraction, which includes a Wild West town, haunted hotel, ski lift, and other amusements. His plan is to turn it into "Funtown Mountain" and introduce some creative new elements. "I am the ringmaster of the Kentucky carnival that will be known as Funtown mountain," wrote Will.
Will and his cohorts are wandering the grounds and Cave City today.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 01/04/2015]

Guntown Mountain is open, under new owner and management. Chairlift and the Smith's country store are open and operating. Haunted Hotel will be open later in the season. Coming soon: Silver Bullet Zipline![Margaret Zakrzewski, 06/03/2014]
Guntown Mountain was a big hit with my wife and grandkids. We had an enjoyable ride up on the chair lift (the view is great), and then were entertained by some talented folks! The music show was very good, the gun fights were great and the magic show was good as well. I was impressed by how friendly and versatile the cast and crew were! Everyone we asked posed for pictures with us and answered questions about the old west. We especially liked Richard and Kenny, two of the cowboys who travel from Indiana to perform there. Kenny and Richard do gun tricks, tell jokes and love kids as well as the old west. Great fun and great value![Doyle Valentine, 01/12/2010]
