The rumor of this park's return never dies, does it?

I really would like to see the park do well, but I'm skeptical considering its history.

I'm still surprised they think bringing back the park in the format it was years ago will be enough to make it thrive... This park has become a money pit and you'd think that the past unsuccessful attempts would be enough to ward off prospective investors. I hope this place finds lasting success because it looks like a cool operation with a unique charm, but I'm not holding my breath.

That said, this is a MUCH better plan than turning this into a religious park like Mrs. Presley planned to do.

There's nothing else for it really to be. It's either going to be that kind of attraction or its gonna become luxury mountain top housing (in an area that is pretty much Methville, NC) ot its gonna sit idle for a few decades/forever.

I love donkeys more than me.

Still think it would be great as a retreat center/summer camp. They need to focus on lodging and add amenities, not the other way around.

As cringeworthy as it was, the "Resurrection Mountain" idea had some viability in this area of the country. Ghost Town is basically the same premise as everything in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge only way smaller and less interesting. I'd say that this might appeal to locals but I mean... what locals? Nobody lives there and I don't see many people from Asheville making the drive. If you're willing to drive an hour to go to Ghost Town, drive an extra hour and go to Dollywood or Gatlinburg which is basically Ghost Town on steroids.

Yeah, this reminds me a lot of Dogpatch, an hour away from and the same premise as Silver Dollar City. It's had rumours of resurrection, but nothing's ever come of it, because who wants to go to Harrison, Arkansas, when Branson, Missouri, is an hour away?
