Ghost Town In The Sky <3First opened in 1961, Ghost Town in the Sky is one of the most rugged parks in America. Set on different levels of the mountain, you have only a chairlift to reach the first level from which you walk to the other levels. Some of the rides swing out over the mountains edge, and in 2008 the Cliff Hanger Roller coaster will be ready to ride. The Cliff Hanger will be the world’s only roller coaster located on the side of a mountain!
The North Carolina Zoo is the place for face-to-face encounters with more than 1,600 creatures in acres of natural habitats. Check out the cougar kittens and baby otter, while the enhanced KidZone will thrill young visitors. #NCbucketlist
