Giant Knight Statue

We passed this on 7-17-18 and it's in sorry shape. You can barely see it due to the vines and other overgrowth. Not even worth a photo.

Headless knight.

The statue is now headless. No longer an operating business, but there is still a spot to pull off, even with the gates up.

The statue no longer stands alone, and his headgear is missing.

The giant knight is a totally cool statue! The whole Cave City area is really neat, and there are all kinds of things to do and explore!

Cave City will likely always thrive as a tourist trap/attraction funnel, situated just east of the main entrance to Mammoth Cave National Park.

Pose beside a giant knight before he rusts into oblivion. Outside of Debbie's Rock and Gift Shop somewhere between Big Mike's Mystery House and Dinosaur World.

[Sir, 07/04/2010]

The knight has been along that stretch of Mammoth Cave Road for decades, from an Age of Chivalry before the time of Fiberglass and Inflatables.
