Has anyone ever been to this small park in western NC? I live not too far away, and was wondering if it was worth a weekend trip or anything like that. Also, does anyone have any info on the coasters they have? Thanks in advance!

I believe they have a couple of coasters, a kiddie and a single-loop steel called the Red Devil. Don't know much else about it ... How far away are you from Myrtle Beach? They have two fun smallish parks (Family Kingdom and the Pavillion), each with a full-sized woodie (the legendary Swamp Fox and the brand-new Hurricane). I recommend MB simply because of the Hurricane, a wicked CCI that was my favorite of the 2000's that I rode this year (yes, i liked it better than the Villain, Legend, and even the Millenium Force).

I went there a few years ago, so my information may be dated. The Red Devil coaster was fun. Great kiddie rides (if you have young children), a wild west themed saloon, Indian dancing, and you have to take a ski lift to get to it (with obligatory picture). We had great fun. It's definitely worth a day trip, or even a weekend IMHO, although don't look for a Six Flags-type atmosphere (obviously). (Friends of ours called it "Camden Park [WV] on a Hill.")

If you live that close to Ghost Town (not the best coaster place in the world), why not drive to Charlotte and go to Paramount's Carowinds. It's the greatest place and their rides are AWESOME!!!!!
