We were able to visit their reptile museum, go on their train, have some ice cream, pan for gold and wander through some shops. Also they have a zip line! Stop in the Mammoth Steak House for some sarsparilla and some nachos if you have a mind to. They also have horseback riding available and a mine tour. Plenty to... More

I read write-ups for this attraction and I imagined a theme park with a respectable train ride and mine tour. Goldfield Ghost Town is a really neat looking recreated ghost town. The town is situated on top of a picturesque hill. There are a lot of nice antiques throughout . Somebody did a lot of good work building this place... More

We ate burgers at the outdoor restaurant/ice cream shop. We were greeted with a smile by some friendly guys cooking on the grill. The burgers were done to perfection and tasted great. After we were done eating we enjoy the most delicious ice cream on a waffle cone. The name of the guy who waited on us was "Adam" and... More

Our family of 6, kids aged 10, 13, 17, & 19, all thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Goldfield Ghost town! There is something for everyone. We did the mine tour, mystery shack, and train ride combo that was offered. We loved all three tours. Everyone in the shops, saloon/steakhouse, & museum were so friendly. We found some really neat souvenirs... More

I live here and enjoy bringing my visiting guests here. The bakery and coffee shop is fantastic. The baked goods alone are worth the stop but the staff is even better. My daughter-in-law got a large iced coffee creation with whip cream and all the fixings. Her daughter accidentally spilled it on the porch. While we were cleaning it up... More

The Gold Field has several stores and sites to see. They have a train ride, a zipline, a mine tour, and see some reptiles. Nothing like this place in the United States. Try the prickly pear fudge - its so tasty. Bring the family.

Very cute little ghost town. There were several shops , a couple places to eat and a neat little museum that was interesting. My step mom did the zip line that they had and it looked fun.

I saw a brochure for this place while I was in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area for a weekend, and thought I'd visit. I like the overall look and feel of the area - it felt to me like I was transported back in time while I was there. However, there isn't really a lot to do here, and there is no... More
