Frontier Land was a wild west-themed amusement park, it ran from 1964–1982.
The park was created by R.B. Coburn, who also built Ghost Town in the Sky in Maggie Valley, and designed by Russell Pearson, a former Disney designer who also developed Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Silver Dollar City in Branson, and Ghost Town in the Sky.
The 140-acre park featured a wood-burning steam train and a gondola that would take visitors to the main three sections of the park:
- Indian Territory
- Fort Cherokee (a replica of a frontier stockade)
- Deadwood Gulch (an 1860s hardscrabble western town)
