Since the park is lovated on top of a mountain, getting there--via incline railroad or chairlift--is half the fun. It is a replica Old West town with gunfights, panning for gold, kiddie rides, a roller coaster, and other attractions

Mine your own gemstones and ride the chairlift to the top of Cowee Mountain.
