THIS PLACE IS AWESOME! Do not listen to the negative reviews, some people will never be happy!! I enjoy it so much that I purchased a season pass and spend my days off here! This place is extremely authentic, it is like stepping into the real wild west of the late 1800's! The acting is phenomenal! All of the actors... More

I took 6 of my grandchildren to Wild West City and was blown away at all the great things they did. The staff went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The shows were outstanding and it was one of the best places I have ever taken my grandchildren. I have been around the world and taken my... More

Our five year old loved the bank robbery & stagecoach ride and hold-up. This is the west that kids no nothing about. We refused to buy him a gun when he was made a deputy but he had just as much fun "shooting" with his fingers. He was thrilled to be chosen to be part of the magician act. I... More

I went to Wild West City not knowing what to expect. (yeah, cowboys and stuff) What immediately caught my attention was the very nice old lady at the ticket booth, just very nice, kind of like going back to my own grandma's.. My eyes were glued to her strange (beautiful) hat with a bunch of big feathers sticking out of... More

The admission price is reasonable, however, be prepared to spent a lot more. Mini golf, pony ride, train ride, stage coach ride, a "Wanted" piece of paper with your name on it are all $4.00 each. Making it $20 more per kid, so not very reasonable to take your children to this place. I would have preferred to pay one... More

The place is quite average but the staff was really nice. The attractions were well worth it especially the shows they performed throughout the day. The food is worse than the McDonalds, bring your own. But the musician is awesome! The school, railroad ride (best if you do it with the show people, not alone - so funny people!), the... More

Brought my two grandkids for the day . There were numerous gunfights during the day and my 8 and 10 year olds enjoyed it , but it was no Great Adventure or Disney . . Of course the price point wasn't there as well but could easily be increased if they spruced it up and gave more value .The facility... More

We visited this past weekend using as family Groupon deal that included some attraction tickets. Please pardon the western movie titles in my review🙂. This was my 1st visit ever, having remembered the Uncle Floyd commercials of decades past. We arrived just before opening. Let me start by saying that the staff and re-enactors were the friendliest folks I have... More
