My kids had a lot of fun at Donley's. The entrance fee is a bit steep but that covers all the rides and activities which also includes a show. They have a restaurant close by and an ice cream parlor inside which are both reasonable priced. We stayed the whole day till closing time. A day well spent.

Just a ten minute ride from the I90 tollway just off Rt. 20 is a great old fashioned amusement park called Donleys Wild West Town. It has rides mostly for children an interesting little museum with a collection of old west artifacts and antiques. Amusements include panning for "gold", a child-size roller coaster that children love but I wouldn't advise adults to ride on account of quick jerky turns and small, hard seats. Bow and arrow (suction cup tips) targeting, sling shot & tomahawk shooting, roping, pony rides, train ride, an old fashioned wild west town with a saloon where you can sit up at the bar in real horse saddles and drink a sasspirilla along with other treats. There is also a Wild West Show with professional stunt actors included in the admission price. You can definitely spend a whole afternoon there and make some great family memories.
There is a KOA campground right next door to the north, you walk right over. Also there is the Old West Steakhouse on the same property as the park. The Steakhouse is tastefully decorated with old west artifacts and a stuffed buffalo in the beautiful saloon area. The steaks, chicken and Friday fish fry are delicious. Some weeekends they have live bands outside. Definitely spend a summer or fall day there with the kids!

We were heading out the door when I asked our daughters what they liked the most. They liked the slingshot game, the archery targets and the handcars. My husband said, "You know, the things they can't do anywhere else." It was a fun way to sum up our day. We expected to spend two or three hours. Five hours later we left with lots of good memories and stories. This is a fun place for kids -- probably 12 and younger. Our girls even liked the museum and asked a lot of questions about the old west.

Nice atmosphere for young and old alike. Smalll museum with old west relics as well as some military items. Cowboys and cowgirls, games, small rides, kid interactive. The restraunt with its lobster and steak specials is worth spending the day until dinnertime
