Located right outside of El Paso TX this amusement park is not anything exciting or amusing more of a place for kids to go. One roller coaster and one nice water ride. Dollar days are the best days to go! I wouldn't pay full price...More

I rather spend my money on Six Flags than this Carnival Amuestment Park. Roller Coasters aren’t even thrilling , the roller coasters are more tailored to kids than adults. I have purchased the Six Flags Membership and has endless amounts of benefits purchasing this than...More

I love that the new location keeps everything so closed together. The rides are perfect for all ages-something for everyone. Bring plenty of bug spray, and really, you can visit in the evening when the summer sun goes down as you can pretty much do...More

Really not worth the time. Very few rides and really not much there at all. It is the only game in town as far as amusement parks go , so really no competition. Your children will be board very fast here.

This is not for the anxious! Some of the rides are almost prehistoric and look as the have been there for 200 years already. The entrance fee is very low but the fun, especially for younger kids, is great. They've also got a roller coaster...More

When we were kids, going to the original Western Playland at Ascarate was a real treat. Even though we now live hundreds of miles away, bringing our kids each May was a fun tradition they all looked forward to. The newer location at Sunland Park...More

Plenty of rides from toddlers to adults age groups. Only few shaded areas, take hat, umbrella, suntain lotion, call to find out if you can take your drinks and lunch. Log water ride is a great way to cool off, train available, but you still...More
