The Ghost Town in the Sky theme park in Maggie Valley, North Carolina could be in danger of closure, with reports emerging of employee wages not being paid in full.

WLOS.com reports that the park struggled to remain open for the last few weeks of the 2009 season, with employees being offered the option to close the park. According to the report, staff were warned that if the park remained open their wages may not be paid in full, and this has proven to be case. The site also claims that water and electricity service to the park has been cut off following unpaid bills.

Ghost Town in the Sky has struggled in recent years, with the park going bankrupt in 2002 and being closed until new owners revived it in 2007. It struggled to reopen its headliner attraction, the Cliffhanger rollercoaster, finally managing it last month. However, it is believed the ride closed again before the end of the season.

Park management are yet to comment on the future of the park, beyond claiming that the unpaid water and electricity bills will be paid.
