Quick trip

This is a great place to pass 2-3 hours. There are a few shops, a restaurant, train ride, and a zip line. The terrain is gorgeous!

We try to come EVERY trip to Arizona. There is something for all ages: shopping, train ride and 'mine tour' with great history in a clever dialogue. Modeled after a real mining town complete with boarded 'sidewalks', eating places, a bordello tour, creepy crawley creature exhibit, crooked house, shooting gallery, old time photos, real country church, and they are still...

There are some interesting sites. There are plenty of things to be bought. There are places to eat. But it's still a slightly over priced tourist trap. And it's really not an authentic ghost town! But, it's worth killing an hour or so.

We wandered over to the Ghost town after attending an art fair at the Superstition Mountain Museum and had a very good time looking at the shops, photographing the Superstitions from this vantage point (you can see Flatiron very clearly), and partaking in their fun $1.00 shooting gallery. The shooting gallery must not be too accurate, because I banked serious... More

We stopped on our way through Apache Junction and enjoyed our quick visit. The highlight of our visit were the stunningly beautiful views of Superstition Mountain. We stopped and looked around in several of the shops and typically would avoid such a touristy location but enjoyed our visit nonetheless.

This is a small but interesting walk. An old mining town outside of Mesa. They had a zip line and a place to eat. Cool snakes, spiders & scorpions in there reptile exhibit. They do gun fights with period dressed actors several times a day.

Pretty much a tourist trap place, but worth a stop in if close by. Close to Dolly paddle boat - the little grand canyon - and the tortilla flats saloon

Enjoyed the train ride and the tour of the gold mine. Wasn't so thrilled by the Mystery House. Made me dizzy. A lot of nice shops and the saloon had good food the the man behind the bar was great. Worth going to.

Not a bad place to spend 3-4 hrs. Some short tours with interesting history and a cool tour with optical illusions, same kind of place as the Mystery Spot in Santa Clara CA.

Worth the trip. We took in all the paid attractions. Decent value for the money. Good recreation of an old west mining town, even has a fun shoot out recreation.
