Fun for the children but we found it expensive with 3 kids

The children loved this place, it was something different and relevant for a holiday in the States! My only grumble would be that most things you had to pay extra for which... read more

bring entire family for this reenactment of "old west" living. all the buildings are open for business, you can even stop by in the old jail house. take a ridge in old horse carriage and experience all old west adventures.

I surprised my granddaughter by taking here here for her birthday. She was amazed by all of the things they had - 22 separate shows. There was also pony rides, a train robbery, and a stagecoach ride with a hold-up. There were a few souvenir shops and lots of cap guns as you had to help the sheriff get the... More

My three year old has an obsession with bad guys. He looks for them everywhere: the back yard, target, the highway.

It's a little dated and a little cheesy but my kids loved this place. They used to have shows in the middle of "town" like a a stage coach ambush or a duel but I'm not sure if they do that anymore. It's a nice place to spend an afternoon.
