This is a fun place to visit. A ghost town with food and fun! Characters and actors. Guns and shoot outs! Bring the kids!

Ok though a contrived facility, gives you a sense of a town long ago. Sit on deck at saloon for a great view of mountain. Guy playing music on the saloon deck was great. Men's bathroom by goldmine was disgusting and seemed to have urine pooled in floor drain.

My 12-year-old son got such a kick out of the gunfight! Interesting stores and tours to learn a bit of history.

We were pleasantly surprised that there was no entry fee to Goldfield. The dusty parking lot and steep hill are a bit daunting to stroller-pushers, but the old buildings are picturesque. We arrived at the start of a simulated gunfight in the middle of the street, which was entertaining, though one might want to bring ear plugs as it was pretty noisy. We avoided the souvenir shops, which are numerous, and enjoyed the views of the Superstition Mountains and the old wagons and mining machinery. The mine tour was very interesting, though the 2 and 6 year old found it a bit scary at first. We didn't have time for the train ride and will return some day to do it.

We stopped there on our way Tortilla Flat with my parents, aunt & myself (40ish and the youngest on that trip). It is a "tourist trap" as others have stated but you can look around for free and pay for additional things like going down into the mine, a tour guide operated train ride around the town, zip lining and more.
We did do the train ride and were thrilled with the stories told by the tour guide. So much information for our $8 ride! And we got some gorgeous shots of Superstition Mountains with the town in front of them while we were in behind the town.
We enjoyed a quick snack a that bakery, loved the museum (that only cost $1), picked up some postcards & had a sarsaparilla float in the ice cream parlour. Despite most of the old buildings being used as different gift shops or sorts there was lots to look at and it still felt like an old town. The old church is still used, there was the Bordello, the lively and I LOVED the saloon (although we didn't eat there as we were on our way to Tortilla Flat).
I did have the prickly pear lemonade so got "sucked in" to the touristy stuff but that was ok with me. It was very yummy and something new.
