We love this attraction. The train ride, alone is worth visiting but the manner in which history is preserved and told through the movie production really moves you. One of the best gift shops in all of Utah.

Lots for kids to do. Large grounds with play areas, many crafts and great views. Price of admission very reasonable and there are coupons off too. Well worth a half day visit.
