We went during the wild west days, where entry was free. This worked out great as the rides and attractions are geared towards kids. The unlimited attractions/ride wristband was 19$ each and the kids had enough to keep them busy for around 3-4 hours. The...More

When we arrived at Wild West Town, the first thing that we noticed that it is now called Onesti's Wild West Town, apparently in deference to a new partner. My two grandkids (4 yrs. & 6 yrs. old) just love coming here. It looks like...More

There's a new sheriff in town (really new owners) and it looks to be headed in the right direction, but could possibly be derailed at any moment. First, we have never been when it was "Donnelly's" so we didn't have anything to compare it to,...More

We visited Donley's Wild West Town with our 5 and 3 year old grandchildren. As others have mentioned, it's slightly run down but it's perfect for young children. They shot arrows and pop guns, panned for gold, rode the ponies, rickety roller coaster, canoe and...More
