Fun place to be! Okay, not always a winner but so much fun to try. Friendly service, nice hotel rooms at Century Casino. This was the 1st time I visited Wildwood Casino, it was large and plenty of slots! Service was terrific. Just a bit of a tip here remember where you park your car ther are several levels. 😯... More

I was hoping this little downtown was a little more family friendly, but it is truly mostly a couple of big casinos. There were a couple of little cute stores, but I wouldn't stop there again. I would only go to the area for the amazing gold mine tours.

Not much here but casino's. The gold mine, train ride, and museum at the top of the hill are your only worth stops.

If you live historic towns and casinos this is the place for you! Very neat town with lots of casinos. The casinos had a lot of games to choose from. Didn't win so I can't say they pay out!! But still fun.

We drove out to Cripple Creek from Colorado Springs expecting a vibrant historic town. We drove through and left. It was all casinos. It was dead ( though it was a Monday noontime). We could not find a place to get a quick lunch.

Wanted to get away from the city and choose to fly into Colorado and stay in Cripple Creek. They towns people are SO SO nice. Went to the heritage museum, the Cripple Creek- Victor railroad, outlaw and lawman museum, and lost $$$ at the casinos (my fault). The Donkeys that wonder around town was awesome! Fed them some treats. Sweet... More

Where did all these people come from? That's the first thing that popped into my mind when my wife and I arrived in Cripple Creek. The last time we were here, the streets were empty except for a few tourists. One saloon offered me a free hot dog and soft drink to play a slot machine. Now there are a... More

The town of Cripple Creek was one of my favorite places visited on our trip. So rich in history. There is a group of donkeys that wander the town who are descendants of the herd that worked the mines. You can get food at several locations in town and feed them. This, hands down, was one of my favorite experiences... More
