Help Save an Amusement Park

Saturday, March 13, 2004 1:55 AM
I know this is far fetched there is no doubt but I am goin to have to try. There is an amusement park in the NC mountains that used to be known as Ghost Town In The Sky. Well anyways it has been closed for two amusement park seasons and the future done't look bright. I would hate for another Amusement park in the Monutains of this area to turn into rusted metal and an overgrown weed fest. just interested if any of you all think if enough people pull togther we could perhapse keep it from closing permanastely. And if you do do you have any idea how?

Don't anyone tell me my ideas are stupid or anyhting of that nature just b/c you might not belive.

It's not far-fetched mind you, but with what I have heard about the condition of most of the rides in that park, it's gonna take a lot of money to put a moderatly-popular attraction back in working order.

If they can market it so it's extremely profitable, Im all for it. *** Edited 3/13/2004 7:43:24 AM UTC by john peck***

Note: The park is FOR SALE. Ads posted recently in Amusement Business.

My understanding of the site is that there really isn't anything else the site would be good for, which is both good and bad news.

Some of the rides have already been dismantled from what I've heard.

I believe a real estate company is attempting to purchase the property and turn it into a private community.

I think the CPO needs to get involved. ;)

I agree. We just know "their" efforts to save the Carolina Sternwheeler paid off. :)

Well i mean do you htink it is possible or not? I am sure it is, but if the owners of the park now aren't sinterested then i think i have a lost cause.
