“one for the men who never grow up”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This was definately a trip for the men out there that have never grown up!
They get the cowboy's, a through back to their childhood, and the Can-Can girls in the saloon!
The Good The Bad and the Ugly, A Fist full of Dollars are a couple of old western films that were actually filmed here.
Joking apart it was a good day out!!!!!!!
There is actually a Zoo attached that you can visit included in the entrance price. My advice on the Zoo would be to take good comfy shoes at it is one hell of a hike to get around it!
There were a couple of surprises at the Zoo, they had Hippo's which I have never seen in real life and the closeness you are to the Tiger and Hyena is unreal.

“Swings and Roundabouts”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We traveled to this attraction with my wife and fifteen year old son, having viewed previous contributions and, on the whole, I would endorse what has been previously said. I did not expect an original film-set... and the whole experience surrounding the western themed areas was first class. We thoroughly enjoyed the gunfight scene and the can-can show..... on each of the two occasions that we watched them.
We did venture into the zoo areas but were immediately depressed by the sight of a tiger in a small compound and so did not stay for long; and treated ourselves to that second round of western style entertainment instead.
We did not visit the water park so can offer no comments about this.

“Fistful of euros! ... But otherwise very good”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

The good-

Water area (pool/slides/jacuzzi) was wonderfully refreshing and a great breather in the heat! Changing rooms available for those who don't arrive in swimwear. The slides are heaps of fun and unmanned so rendering lots more fun!

The set of the western still looks similar to the original in "fistful of dollars" (we rented the movie that night and thoroughly enjoyed pointing out various parts!)

Seeing and petting the horses who seemed well loved and cared for. Also kids and adults alike can sit on one of them saddled-up for a pic (free-with your own camera).
The photo opps are vast-we had one in a "wanted" sign which has resulted in amusing outcomes! We all already had western sun hats so it added flavour to the theme!

The bad-

Entry price a little pricey but it is to be expected regardless.


The show, although enthusiastic and generally great, needs maybe a script re-write? ...pretty sure you don't survive bullets to the head! Or hanging...twice. But in a sense this was funny too so I suppose I can't really call it a negative. Plus, some of their moves with the horses were pretty cool!

The ugly-

The camel in the zoo definetly looked depressed/in need of a buddy (im no zoologist/vet but im pretty sure it wasn't happy!) rest of the animals seemed alright, a few of them needed bigger enclosures and more shade (tigers...hyenas...). But otherwise it was interesting to look around but very hot, so take water (although various refreshment areas are available).

Overall: a thoroughly entertaining day out and id be curious to check out the fort bravo set down the road next time!

“Just a theme park for kids”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I was really disappointed. I expected to see the remains of sets from the spaghetti westerns of fifty years ago but there's nothing left of the original Dollar film sets with the possible exception of the El Paso bank. It is no longer a working film studio but rather it has become a western theme park for kids. There is also a zoo and pool. So, don't bother with it unless you have a couple of eight year olds in tow.

Fort Bravo, a couple of miles up the road, is still used as a film set. It was used in a Dr Who episode a couple of years ago.

“Loved the Wild West, the zoo however...”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is very much a tale of two halves, hence the 'average' rating.

Wild West - Excellent
We loved wandering around the Wild West set part of Mini Hollywood! It's all very well kept, lots to look at, the shoot out and Can-can shows were great. Thoroughly enjoyed this part!

Zoo - Terrible
However, we wouldn't recommend visiting the zoo if you love animals at all. We only saw the first part as it was too upsetting to see such beautiful animals in enclosures without any company, very limited space, no privacy and little shelter from the sun, most of which was right up at the glass giving them no choice but to be close to people who were banging on it and generally winding them up, the animals appeared stressed and it was just too much.

If you avoid the zoo you'll have a great time.
