The whole place is a slightly hokey, overpriced tourist trap, but it works! We spent a couple hours there and enjoyed all the schmaltz, plus had lunch in the Saloon (not the Grille) and the burger was really good, fresh and juicy. Also had the chefs salad which was very big and fresh!

Multiple interesting things to look at, including the Blue Nugget jewelry store. Functional mine for tours, takes cash only. Enclosed snake display was interesting for donation of $4 each and you can go as many times as you like during that day. Small café had little to offer, only downsize I saw.

This is an old western style town that operated in the mid to late 1800's. It's on the way up to the hiking trails in the mountains. They have a train ride and a guided mine tour. There are also a couple of places to eat in the old buildings. Also has restrooms. We'll do the tours next time we... More

The free part is fun for kids to experience the wild west atmosphere with the beautiful backdrop of the Superstition Mountains. Have been here many times. However, on this last visit, the train PA system was broken and you could only hear part of every 3rd word. All we got was a "Sorry bout that." Disappointing. The food in the... More

Although showing signs of wear and lack of upkeep, this attraction is still worth going to. There is no entrance fee but there are fees for the things to do within the "town" (mine tour, zip line) but the train is not working. There are souvenir shops, a couple of places to eat that also serve full bar, a church... More

Business traveler in Phoenix: It was midday on a Thursday and I had nothing better to do. Half of the attractions were closed. I had lunch at the saloon - waited 20 to get my food at the bar and when I was done, I waited 30 min to get my check. The bartender just disappeared. Two people, in a... More

The views of the Superstitions is breathtaking! Went after a heavy rain, so everything was as green as the desert can be. Everyone there is extremely friendly and out going. The biggest disappointment was the train ride. The conductor was knowledgeable with his spiel, but the microphone itself wasn't working...it was like listening to a radio station, but not on... More
