Fun, old fashioned place to go for a day trip with the family! Learn about the good old west, see horse, ride a train, or even a pony!

Kids love this place. This is a dusty replica of an old western town..plenty to see and do. No glitzy "amusement park" trappings, sort of a throw-back in time. Best for kids ages 4 to 10 who get to run around and play Cowboys and shoot guns everywhere. Bring your own toy guns and cowboy outfit (and food) and it... More

Wild West City is an absolute treasure. There were plenty of things for us to do, see, and explore. Our 5yr old loved riding on the old fashioned mechanical rides for $.25-.50 per ride. The stage coach experience was well worth the meager cost of tickets ($4 or $5 per person) with a fun surprise towards the middle. The cowboy... More

Wild West City may have been a cool place to go 20 or 30 years ago. Today it is a run-down relic of yesteryear. It's not worth the admission. You will be disappointed. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Having been a few decades since a trip here, I was compelled to visit again and see what has changed! Price was one thing although not unreasonable I feel. The "actors" have changed due to their age except for one 78yr old fellow who can still spin a rope! Food is ok although a tad overpriced but they do have... More

I had won two tickets from a school tricky tray to Wild West City and decided to give it a try. It has not been updated in years but my family had a nice time. If we had to pay for it, I think it would have been expensive for what you get and I would have passed. There are... More

I thought this place would be a fun day trip for the family. Boy, I was wrong! This place was so boring we barely stayed 2 hours!! For paying a pricey admission you get nothing for it!! Every activity (riding pony, buggy ride, mini golf, & train ride) had a charge per person. So what did the admission price cover...... More

We haven't been to Wild West City since our grandson was 10 years old. He is 17 now & we brought him back to show our 4 year old grandson around the park. Both boys had a great time & the 4 year old wanted to know when we could return. We enjoyed sitting in the shade at a picnic... More
