Visitors can again visit the Silver Dollar Saloon in the dusty streets of Ghost Town on Monday to hear about the future plans for theme park. The park, which has been closed for several years, will re-open in May.

I was looking at pictures of the place off of someone's website last night and it's got me curious, whereas before I don't even think I really ever thought of the place except as a name. I kept looking at the Red Devil coaster going "Well, it's definitely not an Arrow, not a Vekoma, kind of looks like a Schwarzkopf, but it's not," and then the guy says there's only one train due to the other one being scrapped for parts. The maker? O.D. Hopkins. It's still in working order as he got to ride it.
The view from the top of the mountain is stunning, and if I get down that way, hopefully I'll stop by.

The park has a ton of potential and looks nice, I'm sure if the new owners are enthusiastic and run things well, it could make out very well. Anyone have any pictures or anything of what Silver Bullet was??

P18 ~ I'm a Haywood County native, grew up going to Ghost Town as a bored teenager. AFAIK, Silver Bullet was never completed and never opened. The Red Devil, doesn't have a lift hill, the main drop is right out of station and off the side of the mountain. The chain lift pulls you back into the station at the end of the ride ~
