The dire state of finances at Maggie Valley Ghost Town in the Sky led the amusement park to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy March 10.

Sluggish ticket sales last season due to surging gas prices, coupled with the high costs of rehabilitating the park’s 48-year-old infrastructure, dealt a serious blow to Ghost Town’s anticipated revenues and debts mounted.

Hopefully they get the coaster up and running soon which would be a bigger draw, I'd like to make it there sometime.

It's a really neat place and their freefall ride at the top of the mountain has quite possibly a more intimidating view than the one on the Stratosphere.
