AP: Future of Funtown Mountain uncertain as park looks to be abandoned

Posted: Updated:

CAVE CITY, Ky. (AP) -- The future of a new theme park in south central Kentucky is in limbo as its new owner has had repeated run-ins with police.

The Daily News in Bowling Green reports the Funtown Mountain park overlooking Interstate 65 appears to have been abandoned.

Will Russell of Louisville bought the former Guntown Mountain earlier this year and reopened it in June under the new name. Russell is best known as co-founder of the Lebowski Fest in Louisville, a quirky annual celebration of the film, "The Big Lebowski."

Russell recently indicated on social media that he has "had it" with Cave City, the site of Funtown Mountain. He was arrested on Aug. 29 during a traffic stop there and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and drug charges.
