It was nothing like we expected. The place had virtually no actors walking around. The speaker system was shot and hard to hear. We went to buy a hot dog in a place that only sells hot dogs and they had no buns. We got an old time picture taken and the camera had no ribbon to print. However, they... More

I took my 5 yr old daughter and was nervous that she wouldn't like it or there wouldn't be enough going on to keep her occupied, just the opposite! She loved it and once the entertainment started at 11am then every 5 mins there was something else going on, and it was all different and not the same shows/demos repeated... More

I have been bringing my kids there for years. Gives kids a chance to see, hear, smell, and experience the American West with absolutely NO technology needed!!

The Good Most of the staff is good to excellent. The theme is somewhat hard to find elsewhere. The shows are very good and kid friendly. The weak Maintenance is spotty to poor. Poor parking lot and the farm area. Some of the displays are little more than trash pickings. Its a bit of a money pit. Food is expensive... More

The Grandkids had fun at the old west. They thought it was awesome. They had no idea what the old west was like. Nice picnic area where you can leave your stuff all day and no one bothers it. The Shows keep the kids very entertained. The loved the train, and stagecoach rides.

As many reviewers have stated that they were there when they were kids I can also say the same. I was there before I started kindergarten sometime I guess around 1965 or so. A total Jersey thing! Fortunately or not, I don't think the place has changed much since the Johnson Administration. Anyway I guess WWC is in the eye... More

We visited in May 2013, all the way from England. Its very cheesy, which we were expecting, and some touches are fab such as the shows with the actors and the stage coach. Some of it was so tired and drab though, and what really made me nervous was the sign in the restroom detailing the identification of e.coli at... More

Unless your kids are 5 or under this place is beyond cheesy and lifeless. And the management is rude and customer service is horrible.

I have a soft spot for this attraction despite some of its issues. Yes, it is a bit run down, yes, many things are broken (games, camera for the old-fashioned pictures etc) BUT, kids (4-10 are the sweet spot) will have a great time. They will love it unless the adults point out the problems or they're with older kids... More

I took two of my grandchildren here, ages 9 & 7. We had a fun couple of hours. WWC has not changed much since I brought my children there at least 25 years ago. The have a different show every 15 minutes and they last long enough to hold the kids interest. It was a bit pricey to get in,... More
