It's called the Kentucky Action Park and it's in Cave City. And it's been there in Cave City for 50 years. Yep, it opened in 1970.

My family and I visited the attraction when I was a kid and I've been back several times as an adult--for nostalgic purposes, for just good ol' fun--because the place just screams SIMPLE PLEASURES.

I was there Tuesday to see how things were going in the wake of the pandemic shutdown and, well, it could be better.

I spoke to Ricky Carey. His mother owns the place but he's operating the property, which, at present, isn't 100% open. The riding stables are and so is the miniature golf course. And they're offering cave tours.

But other circumstances have kept other parts of the Kentucky Action Park--like the chair lift and alpine slide--closed.

He hopes to reopen all of it within the next couple of weeks, but there are conditions that need to be met.

In the meantime, take a look at this cool, "old school," throwback roadside attraction in south central Kentucky.
