Took my nephew, we did the zipline, the train, the saloon and the reptile exhibit. Love the zipline, the guy running it was great. Train was good, the conductor was the best thing about it. Very friendly and great at his job. Reptile exhibit was a waste of money, $7 for a little room. Saloon had great food and very... More

Took visitors here primarily to try the zipline which was great fun. Then bought tickets that got us into 3 attractions: train ride, mystery house, and mine tour. We enjoyed learning about the history while on the train and the views were nice. The mine tour again touched on some history but the best part for us that day was... More

Again just a few miles out of town, this place offers much for the casual tourist. l Well worth the time and effort to take in their activities.

We walked around and took pictures of this cute little ghost town. Lots of food, drink, and trinket access. I hadn't been to a ghost town for years so it was fun.

Very hot day, but we enjoyed wandering in the various shops. Reasonably priced nice souvenirs. Check out the photographer who helps you choose and dress from a variety of period costumes and props. I don't typically do that sort of thing, but my son wanted to -- great pic, lots of fun. Friendly, personable photographer did a great job (and... More

If your looking for a real ghost town experience this isn't it. The best part of the town was the ice cream shop & the Hot Sauce shop.

We visited on a very hot day even for Az. Most of the shops we're open. Very touristy but cute anyways. We bought some unique souvenirs for the kids.

I use to work at this town and I tell you, this is a real Ghost town. I am not kidding.I saw things I couldn't believe. Make sure you take the mine tour and ride the train. Go into the Bordello and ALL of the shops. There is a gunfight in the prime season. Hav a Great Time.

I went to Arizona to visit a friend who just moved there. We did a little roadtrip around the state. I had been looking for fun little places to stop along the highway and we found plenty of cool places. But I had been looking for an old ghost town and we just didn't pass any that we near enough...
