Ghost Town in the Sky - a Christian theme park?

Local politicians running for office in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, have proposed transforming the dormant family attraction, Ghost Town in the Sky, into a Christian theme park. Ghost Town, on US Highway 19, was closed for the 2003 season. In addition to its pseudo-Old West ghost town, it featured Fort Cherokee, Kiddieland,
