I have not been to Wild West City in 25 years. The terrain as not changed much, but the enthusiasm of the actors has. I remember older more involved actors. These new guys giggled a lot. It seemed to be a joke. True it's all acting and you don't want to scare the kiddies to much. However; if your a... More

Took our grandchildren. Great fun for young kids, maybe up to age 13 or so. The live shows were a lot of fun. There was a petting zoo for the kids as well as a pony ride.

I gave this a 4 because it's such a unique experience for this area of the country but it really deserves a 3 for execution. The bones of the park are great. It just feels like a family owned business where the family isn't allowing the younger more energetic generation to take over. They need to downsize the museum feel... More

You can see the whole town in an hour. 2 Hours if you take your time and walk the path outside of the town. If you do you can talk to a mountain ma at his cabin. He eats turtles and bears. In fact, he pretty much eats anything he can catch. The shells and furs are on his cabin.... More

A nice low key family oriented place. It is a miniature West town. Different scenes were played out by the staff during entire day . Well taking care animals, friendly staff. Our toddler had a lot of fun riding pony.

Love this place- a true cowboy western come to life with an actual 'showdown' in the old town and get ready for the train robbery! (if you think your youngster will be afraid, warn them first as the train is 'held up' but the robbers turn friendly in the end. Plan at least a few hours to see all of... More

Nice place to visit but showing its age. The stagecoach is so much fun. Some of the attractions are corny but a nice day trip for little kids.

If you have girls...they may or may not like it. I have 2, and 1 liked, and the other didn't. Seems awesome for young little boys probably 7 and under. You pay the admission because of the drama and skits that happen out of nowhere. There are added things to pay for, but they cost is not excessive. Its was... More
