Cool place to visit. We had one of the old fashioned pictures made. I have always wanted to do that. Prices very reasonable. Nice gift shop. The staff very friendly and helpful.

The only thing that you can do is pay $10 a person to ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain but nothing is opened. The place is literally a ghost town and so disappointing to see how run down the place is now. Great place to visit 20 yrs. ago...

There are no live gunfights or saloon shows like there used to be. Not sure what the new owners are going to do, but they better do it soon. Paid the $10/person for a chairlift ride to the top mostly out of curiosity and reliving memories of what used to be. Would not go again.

I was told new owners bought the place and they will no longer have the gun slingers and the can can girl shows and etc. so I guess we jus ride to the top and look at empty made up buildings?? No thanks don't waste any vacation time here

The haunted hotel was a fabulous throwback to childhood carnival haunts/dark houses. I am horror fiend and I adored it. Super creative, great atmosphere and spooky and it even BOOed me a few times. For $6 you can not go wrong.

Over-charged for a ride on a rusty ski lift to guntown mt to see nothing. Nothing really going on but a few people singing in a building. No good shows, nobody in character and nothing to do. Left feeling stupid and robbed. Very, very disappointing. If the new owners aren't going to do anything with it then they should stop... More

We stopped and took several photos of the haunted hotel and front of building, Staff did not even bother to greet us and suvenieers was over priced and looked like they were leftovers from the 20th century. White handles on spoons had turned yellow and the smell of smoked hams upon entering was very very strong.Olde time photos clothes were... More

This would have been such a great visit; had there been anything open and operating. We stayed a week for a Mammoth Cave vacation. We were hoping to visit the Guntown Mountain; our mother is not capable of going into caves or hiking; this would have provided an entertainment for her. I noticed a lot of closed for business stores... More

Stopped in 10 am on a recent Saturday.... This place is definitely NOT open! We were looking forward to the general store and ski lift. Shame to have a prime location and let it waste.
