Description

Guntown Mountain is an entertainment park located at Cavve City. The attractions are the Mammoth Cave Chair Lift, which ascends 450m to the summit of Guntown Mountain, an authentic reproduction of 1880s frontier town, museums, and a saloon. For kids there is a train ride and a water slide. Onyx Cave is part of this park.

The cave has a wealth of colourfull speleothems, especially cave coral. The cave is pleasant, and the guides are competent, but it may not be worth to visit the park just to see this small cave.
