After being closed for 5 years Ghost Town is under going a rebirth. The planned opening date is Memorial Day Weekend 2007. Located at the top of this mountain, in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, is a mile high fun center with an old west setting. To get to the top you must either ride a chair lift, or a railway tram and this is an adventure in itself. When you go to Ghost Town you can fulfill all your fantasies of visiting a wild west town complete with bank robberies, jail breaks, and gun fights. Visit the Silver Dollar Saloon and watch the Can Can Dancers perform while you eat lunch. Ride the Red Devil (a roller coaster with a complete loop), the Sea Dragon, the Black Widow, and many more daring rides. Visit the Old Mining Shaft and browse through their many shops. Just enjoy a day like no other.
What would life on the frontier be without gunfights, jailbreaks and bank robberies? You'll be right on the edge of the action as the Marshal rounds up the bad guys after an exciting shoot - out on main street. Following the excitement, you're invited to have your photo made with the internationally known Ghost Town gunfighters.
Music, dancing and hand - clapping fun awaits you in the entertainment halls in the old city. Belly up to the bar in the Silver Dollar Saloon. Enjoy the honky - tonk piano, red velvet walls, and high stepping dancers doing old Parisienne can - can. There's also a country music show performing daly.
