From Guntown to Funtown: Owner of Why Louisville buying Cave City attraction

Staff Louisville Business First

Will Russell, the man behind Why Louisville souvenir shops and the Lebowski Fest, has a new project.

He’s in the process of buying Guntown Mountain, a roadside attraction in Cave City, Ky., WDRB-TV reports.

“Roadside attractions to me are the heart of the American entrepreneur,” Russell said.

He will be trading in the G in Guntown Mountain for an F. “Funtown Mountain is basically a Kentucky carnival-themed, amusement, family entertainment center,” he said, adding that “once it’s in full swing, it’s going to be a daily attraction. People will travel. We’ll have special events, concerts, festivals.”

Russell said Funtown Mountain will bring commerce, jobs and good publicity to Cave City, which is the home of Mammoth Cave National Park, and Russell expects Funtown Mountain to open by summer 2016, the story said.
