You can walk in the footsteps of John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, and many others from the old westerns. It’s a step back into time and worth the stop.

Thank you for sharing your review! We are proud to be celebrating our 80th anniversary this year. And it all began with Columbia Pictures and the movie, "Arizona."

My husband and I really enjoyed visiting the site where so many of our beloved western classics were filmed. It is very reasonably price with continuous activities throughout the day. Definitely take the guided tour and catch some of the shows!

Got to admit...I was somewhat skeptical about visiting here. A big "The High Chaparral" fan, I wanted to visit the set/site where I watched Big John, Buck, and the rest when I was 8 years old. I figured this is my first (and possibly last)...More

It's an all day event and a great day. They have an itinerary for the day which you get when you pay to get in. I think it starts about 9.30 or 10am and finishes at 5.30pm. You can choose to leave any time you want. Lots of... More
