How far away is this from Ghost Town in the Sky?

Makes me kind of wonder how many parks like this are out there with a little coaster that we don't know about.

Ghost Town is actually in Maggie Valley in the mountains and Deadwood is in the Coastal Plains region, which is on the other side of the state. I would guess that it is a 6 hour drive or so. I would bet that the closest major park is Busch Gardens Europe.

Ginzo: If I recall, I believe that the dinner show is one that has been performed in Deadwood, South Dakota for a good while. While most of the park is based on the town of Deadwood, the section with the Roller Coaster, and where the two rides that are being built is based on the Badlands, where you can find all sorts of fossils.

The sign near the roller coaster, I forgot to post it before, but this is where you get to the area with the roller coaster, and the two rides under construction.

I heard a rumor from someone (who has since left this site) that there is a kiddie coaster in Connecticut that he has ridden but he will not tell RCDB about.

Anyone think that little coaster looks a lot like High Speed Thrill Coaster at Knoebels?

I had thought that once, but I think it is more like Tumbleweed at Ghost Town in the Sky: Tumbleweed

Carolinacaniac you deserve a TPR award, the Christopher Columbus of credit whores - we all humbly bow.

It does look a lot like High Speed Thrill Coaster, which was my 300th and last new credit, I meant it to be Phoenix but due to an accountancy error it was 299.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

It looks like a ripoff of Tweetsie Railroad and Ghost Town in the Sky....so now there are three Wild West themed amusement parks in NC. (Four if Frontierland was still around)
