Where are we going today?

Ready for a unique amusement park experience at the top of Buck Mountain in North Carolina? We hope so, because we are!

Ghost Town in the Sky is a unique amusement park in the mountains of west North Carolina, ready to give the whole family a great time - from the bravest buccaneers, to the smallest of outlaws!

The authentic western theme is a fun addition to all the activities and rides you can enjoy. Fancy shooting down a 325 foot zip line? It certainly is a great way to start that adrenaline for the day!

Not enough for you? How about the Bullet - a 480 foot long zip line, just to really get that heart beating! Then of course you can wind down on the Holster, the 190 foot zip. We did say there was a ton of kids fun,and we've only just started! 

You're in a stunning part of the Smoky Mountains, so why not get a better view! The Chairlift Ride takes the family up 3500 feet to the peak of Buck Mountain, and back down again. Amazing views, so don't forget that camera!

Got little kiddies who want some Western fun? Check out the Fun Kiddy Land areas, where they can experience a jet fighting adventure, or embark on a canoe expedition. (Don't worry, they are kiddie sized!)

From a Round-Up ride where you can be spun round like a Buckaroo's rope, and a Ghost Town museum, FILLED with Ghost Town memorabilia and cowboy artifacts,  you certainly won't be short of fun things to do! 

Did we mention about Western Town, that action packed area where kids can really experience what life would have been like back in the Old West. Witness those crazy gunfights, as well as can-can dancing and even that bank robbery you hear so much about.  A great way to re-live the Wild West!

So come on Outlaws - what are you waiting for!

    “Misrepresentation in brochure !”

    Ghost Town reopened and their beautiful shiny professional brochure (currently being handed out on site and in the community) says: ADMISSION price $24.95, THRILL RIDES , exciting shows, etc. The brochure does NOT call the ticket price a "transportation fee"! Nor does it say that the ONLY thrill ride is a zip line that you can pay another $45/person to do!
    Well, the whole thing is a SCAM and someone should be held responsible for their misrepresentation for what is really on site! A creaky ride on the chair...Read More

    "Ghost Town Theme Park will reopen for our new season Friday June 20th 2014 at 10:00 a.m and will run to the end of October 2014." is what I got from their web site under "Operating Schedule". Family members have talked about it for ages, so this year we're going. Booked a hotel in Maggie Valley. Arrived Tuesday, July 22, 2014 about 09:50. No-one there. A sign says they are open Friday through Monday. During the twenty minutes we hung out there four other families showed up. None had seen anything on the web site about being closed Tuesday...Read More

    We paid $70.00. The hole park suck. There was no rides for the bigger kids. One ride open for a three years old. Suck. Got to the third level no rides. The train was not working. The only thing that was open was the saloon and the gun show. Sucks. The saloon show was very bad. The girls was bad and they were not in step. They could not sing. One of the girl had tattoos all over her right leg and that was not a pretty. She could not dance or sing and she did not care if she was there or not. She need to be fired. A can drink was $2.00 and water was...Read More

    It was completely awesome. The staff was kind and helpful, can not wait to go back. The experience was one of a kind, the shows were great. We have 2 boys, ages 12 and 8 and they both loved it. So glad they reopened Ghost Town. A definite must see. A wonderful family place to visit. Thank you Ghost Town employees for making our family trip a wonderful experience.

    My Parents took us to Ghost Mountain in the Sky in the 70's, I went once as an adult and I am going to go the 4th of July when they open up. They will only be open Friday-Saturday-Sunday and Monday from 8:30 to 5:00 pm. I can hardly wait to go. I will write another review after I get back home.

Well, the whole thing is a SCAM and someone should be held responsible for their misrepresentation for what is really on site! A creaky ride on the chair lift (is it even safe?), NO other rides operating (three child rides were closed and there ARE NO ADULT RIDES in running order), shows that are performed by less than talented dancers and actors/actresses (one of the guy's belt, holster and gun fell off during the show and he was caught in his chair and couldn't stand up; during the shoot out no one ever jumped off the building), DIRTY run-down restrooms and gift shops with only made in China products. The train was not even running! We were afraid to eat any of the food cooked there--the only thing I saw open was the pizza place--fudge shop and all other dining was closed! Our visit was the last week of July so it's not even the end of their season. It took one hour to walk the grounds and ride back down to safety. As you EXIT, there is a sign that says "NO REFUNDS ON TRANSPORTATION FEES". How can the town of Maggie Valley allow this place to misrepresent what is available? It is giving the area a bad name...we heard this from many people who were vacationing while there. One couple with five children was disappointed that they couldn't get the "return the second day if you arrive after 3" tickets because the park was closed on Tues. They decided to not purchase tickets and the kids were so upset. I wanted to scream--"go somewhere else! You can do this place in one hour!" For many people with families, one hundred is a big chunk of vacation money and it's sad that Ghost Town is allowed to bilk people this way. We'll not go back to Maggie Valley area to vacation again (and usually I am the one who wants to extend our stay wherever we go). The area is in decline and it's so sad since it was such a great place in years past.

The cousins who live a mile away were surprised they were only open for the extended weekend.

A can drink was $2.00 and water was $2.00. The gun show suck too. The big guy that was telling about the gun show was reading word for word from an computer. He did not know his lines. The whole park really sucks. If you want to waste your money got ahead and go. But I will never go again. Sucks, Sucks, Sucks.
