Press release from Beverly-Hanks & Associates:
Maggie Valley, NC’s iconic Ghost Town in the Sky Wild West-themed amusement park is back on the real estate market through NAI Beverly-Hanks. NAI Beverly-Hanks agent Billy Case recently listed the property for $5,950,000.
Located at 16 Fie Top Road in Maggie Valley, the former Ghost Town property includes 250 acres of prime mountaintop development property and 40 buildings on four levels of the mountain with an authentic Western town and train ride. Many of the buildings and rides have been recently renovated, including the main entrance office, which has soaring ceilings and a stone fireplace. Paved parking for 700 vehicles is available down the mountain. The access chairlift transports 1,200 passengers per hour from the parking lot to the park entrance.
Billy Case says, “This property is located in the heart of Maggie Valley and served as a major destination for many years. We are looking for a buyer who recognizes the value—both of the property and to the community.”
According to the commercial listing, 16 Fie Top Road offers unlimited income potential and tremendous personal property inventory. The property will not be subdivided, and personal property will not be sold separately.
Ghost Town in the Sky (recently known as Ghost Town Village) opened in 1961 as an amusement park with a nostalgic Western theme. For generations, it was a major destination for family fun for attendees from Haywood County, across Western North Carolina, and beyond. As a mountain-top park, it was known for its iconic chairlift access, which would lift park attendees 1,250 feet in elevation from the parking area to the entrance.
Since 2002, Ghost Town has seen several changes in ownership. The most recent owner made many repairs and upgrades and rebranded the park as Ghost Town Village, which was to feature live acts, shopping and a museum, a zipline, and many interactive programs.
