Everyone In North Carolina Should See What’s Inside The Gates Of This Abandoned Theme Park

North Carolina’s famous Ghost Town In The Sky, located in Maggie Valley, opened to much fanfare in 1961 and thrived for decades. Generations of North Carolinians (and beyond) made lifelong memories at the theme park on top of the mountain. But eventually the park attendance began to dwindle and parts of the attraction fell into a state of disrepair. Ultimately, it closed for good and was sold to a group that renamed the attraction ‘Ghost Town Village’ with a scheduled opening date of June 2016. But those plans were averted and the park was put up for sale again soon after. Then, another resurrection of the park was announced with an opening in April 2019 which never happened. It sits abandoned, decaying and haunted with the impressions of hundreds of thousands (millions?) of small children who have carried the memories of Ghost Town in the Sky into adulthood.

In July of 2019, the park was put up for sale for a reported $5.9 million.

Today, exploring the park is considered trespassing and we strongly discourage any attempts. But we are sharing an eerie drone video below that was taken a little more than two years ago, in February of 2017.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
