A former amusement park in south-central Kentucky will be sold at auction on Wednesday, April 20.

Media report a handful of potential buyers inspected the site of the former Guntown Mountain tourist attraction in Cave City this week in anticipation of the sale.

Ed Durnil, an auctioneer who is helping conduct the court-ordered master commissioner's sale, said there have been 42 serious inquiries about purchasing the property.

Louisville businessman Will Russell reopened the roadside attraction in June after getting a loan from the Kentucky Tourism Department and raising money through a Kickstarter campaign. He renamed it Funtown Mountain and gave it a carnival theme.

Cave City officials closed the site in September over code violations. A judge ordered the sale as part of foreclosure proceedings.
