We visited in May 2012, because of de comments our expectations were a little to high so it seems. There were hardly any visitors, just a few shops and the crew looked bored.... The show we loved was the one with the rescued animals!! After a quick walk trough the rest of the place we decided to take the next shuttle back to our hotel. Probably when you have kids and more visitors, it is a great place to visit.

Thank John en Sas S

The whole family LOVED this-- grandparents, parents and kids (3 &6 yr olds) a like. Not only was the place awesome but the people/staff were, too-- and that is what really makes the place. The blacksmith, the sheriff and the Arizona Rough Riders were our favorite people/places.

My only suggestions would be to 1) improve the old-time photo shop. I really wanted to do the old-time photos but that shop lacked information and timeliness. By that I mean that it took the staff over 10 minutes to approach us at all (to say hi or anything), and when they finally did we were told it would be another 10+ minutes before we could be helped... we finally decided we didn't want to waste any more precious time there. They were nice enough but lacked motivation in getting us to purchase at $30+ photo. And 2) make it more apparent where in the town to get attraction tickets.

There was so much to do in the town, though, that we weren't without other options. In fact, we didn't get everything done that we wanted to! We ended up eating at the hamburger/hotdog "stand" (which was great)-- can't wait to try the steakhouse next time! The kids are already asking to go back.

We visited here on March 10th 2013. We had an excellent time. The cowboys in character walk the streets. They have gunfight shows. Several different ones. We watched 2 of them. They will speak to you on the street and stay in character.
There is a magic show, a bull (mechanical) to ride, a stage coach, a train, climbing wall and other things to do. There are several stores that look like they are from the old West. There is also a Steakhouse. It serves some good food.

i went here with coworkers and it was surprisingly fun. although it is designed to entertain kids, it has enough attractions for adults as well. i gave it 4 stars because it is a bit cheesy, but in this case, the cheese is good.

the best parts of the town are the metal workers shop, the photo shop (where you can dress up for an old school photo) and the petting zoo.

the steak house onsite is AMAZING. be prepared for huge proportions. their cheeseburger was larger than my head. all in all, it was fun.

Loved this place. The staff dress and act the part. The Mayor is brilliant in his part. Did not eat here so no idea what the food is like. Loved how the restaurant looked!
