If you are looking for a place that is cheap and enjoyable, Cave City is the place to go. Cave City has many things to offer from horse riding stables and miniture golf to actual wig-wam shaped motels, to little country stores that sell delicious jams and jellies with an awesome country charm. Guntown Mountain, located right inside Cave City, is a place that shouldn't be missed if you are travelling through Cave City, Kentucky. If you like taking a step back in time, and enjoy old saloons and shoot-outs between cowboys, then this is the right place for you!
When you pull into the parking lot leading to Guntown Mountain, you are greeted with a very unique country store. Inside this wonderful little store, many handmade country gifts and tasty jams and jellies are sold. The honey butter is great!
First there is a level you can go to by taking steps up which lead you to a haunted house, a Ripley's Believe It or Not type of museum, games, and rides such as the Tilt-A-Whirl. To get to Guntown Mountain, you have to take chairlifts up the side of a huge cliff like that goes straight up skyward. The chairlifts are an experience in themselves. It's a rush going up and looking down; you only to see rocks and grass below!
At the top of the "mountain," is a whole town of gunslingers and saloons. There is a saloon with can-can dancers performing throughout the day, and also shoot-outs between cowboys--quite cool! There is an old jail you can go into, a magic shop, and even old time photography studios where you can get your picture taken, 1800's style.
If you like taking a step back in time and enjoy history, visit Cave City and Guntown Mountain. You will walk away with lots of memories of this wonderful, unique experience.
