Somewhat interesting but it's really just a tourist trap. I didn't expect to see a zip line in an "Old West Ghost Town"..Free parking and no entrance fee BUT everything else is a pay as you go. There was a gunfight show in the street. The announcing of the show was longer than the actual show which was disappointing and... More

I am ashamed to say that despite living in PHX for over 9 years, I have never been to Goldfield. After recently seeing "The Legends of the Superstition Mountains" series on the History Channel, I planned a visit with my 4 year old. We had so much fun! There is lots to do with kiddos. We did the mining tour... More

It will be good visit if you take your children with you because the site is educational. I recommend you take a guided tour inside the mining area/underground. You can also enjoy the souvenir shops if you like to take something with you. Remember to take a picture with a huge cactus, you try hugging one if you like (do... More

I drove here first to see if it was something my family would enjoy. I decided it was and took them back last week. The train ride was enjoyable and informative. The man that led the mine tour was hysterical! Both are about 20 minutes long. The Mystery Shack was CRAZY! Don't go if you get motion sickness or vertigo.... More

The Saloon was really nice. The owners are incredible. If you play chess let The owner know he would love to play you

Super thing to do, especially for kids! Exploring is free and the activities are all like 5 $! The mystery house is really funny and also the train ride around the town with a super friendly instructor who offered a lot of information about the land, the plants and wildlife, mining and the natives.

Cool place to visit with the family, we ate in the restaurant after the tour and the train ride. So we did not do the zip lines. The mine tour, the mistery shack and the train ride were entertaining. I recommend to buy the package.

It is a great look at some gold mining history. I am not much for shopping but if you are and like to collect things from where you have visited, there are some great stores there. It looks very authentic old gold mining town complete with a saloon and gold mine tour. We bought the package to see/do three of... More

We spend a lot of time here, always bring visitors here for the atmosphere, music, food, shopping. Always clean, organized, and a fun place to spend some hours.

This was to have been the capitol of Arizona at one time in 1850. Then the gold and silver ran out. Across the street from the Superstition Mountain.
