For someone who's grown up and lived in El Paso all their lives, it's known that there are no theme parks around here except for this one and Wet-n-wild. The park is fun and the rides aren't to bad, but in the middle of the summer there is hardly any shade and the drinks are outrageously expensive. For the 20... More

The park is good for kids but is no huge parks. The parking lot is shared with the sunland casino. The water rides are the most fun

While I show my good friend from Switzerland, Chris Gafafer-Luthi around The Hidden Gem of the World, we motored out to the Westside of El PasoTX-USA. If going to the Santa Teresa POE, or Boundary Marker #1 [It is atrocious what has happened to the USA side of this extremely historic site, both in access and physical upkeep] or the... More

If you are bored and have nothing else to do then this might be for you. Other wise Id avoid it. The rides look like they are falling apart they are so old. Not really any shade to hide from the sun, water fountains put out lava rather than water. Staff isnt friendly. Not really much to do to keep... More

It's ok for the price. Some rides, no shade... Kinda old. There are usually no lines and I think it would be more fun for small children. The rides vary from baby rides to roller coasters.

This was my first visit to Western Playland. The park is actually located across the Texas border in New Mexico. I am not able to compare the park in its new location with its original location. There are several rides located within its grounds. There are two roller coasters and a few classic style rides there, including a Flying Scooter... More
