Halfway to nowhere between Beech Bend and SFKK, lies the oft overlooked Guntown Mountain. It's just a little blip on the map along the interstate and has always intrigued me as I've driven by it. There isn't much to see from the interstate except a chairlift, but upon closer inspection there are a few other attractions including a boarded up haunted house, ghost town, and train ride. I think there's also an alpine slide. I've never actually been inside the park since it was closed when I stopped in '07, and I'm not even sure if the park is still operating, but at least the huge gift shop was open and full of all kinds of trinkets and nick knacks including cured hams!
Can someone vouch for visiting the park or if it's still in operation?
Who's up for an autumn train ride through the back woods of Kentucky?
Here in the USA we celebrate a holiday called Thanksgiving on this coming Thursday, and it just so happens that Holiday World's newest area is themed around all that is otherwise known as "eat a ton of amazing food and fall asleep on the couch watching football games" day. Oh yeah this holiday also has something historical to do with the Pilgrims and Native Americans gathering for a celebratory harvest festival way back in Jeff Johnson's glory days. I think it might be time for me to get out that Charlie Brown classic tv special and brush up on Jeff's history!
Anyway I digress, so here's The Voyage, and I hope everyone has many blessings for which to be thankful and celebrate.
I can't wait to try out those new Timberliner trains next year!
