Gun fights and dancing return in 2013.
Ghost Town in the Sky in Maggie Valley reopened in 2013. Three new zip-lines have been built near the park’s entrance opened. Then ride the chair lift to the top of the mountain. The park is undergoing renovations. The"Old Western Town" again has gunfights in the street and the Parisian CanCan Dancers on the stage of the Silver Dollar Saloon! Some rides are going again too.
In 2014, they plan to add a "Holy Land," built on the highest elevated-portion of the mountain and will be a replica of Jerusalem’s Holy Land.
Ghost Town in the Sky closed its doors in 2002 after 41 years of successful operation. The Park was sold and reopened in 2007, but closed at the end of the 2009 season. Alaska Presley, one of the original investors, purchased the park in the spring of 2012 and will be opening the park in various phases.

The park is nestled at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains and is 4 miles east of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Milepost 255 in Maggie Valley. Maggie Valley is 14 miles east of Cherokee and 34 miles west of Asheville.
