It isn't that much to see or do, but my small grandchildren were fascinated by the train and the lights.

“Pure family fun!!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We took our 4 grandchildren (ages 12, 9, 6, & 4) on Sat. night (Dec. 15) to this "old west town" . The website said to allow 3 hrs. We were there for 3 1/2 & didn't get to do nearly as much as we wanted. There's lots to see & do (mostly do) & much of it was included in the ticket price. ($10, the sale price) Can't beat that w/ a stick!! But ticket sale only lasted 11 hrs. this year! So you really have to go on line early in Nov. when they go on sale.
Beautiful carrosel, huge playground, 2 large arcades, Elf Train (for littles ones), mule drawn wagon ride & of couse, the Christmas Train were all "free". Several choices for food & snacks. Pony rides for little ones, bumper cars, go carts, stagecoach rides, a huge "ropes course" & maybe other stuff that we didn't see, seemed reasonable (ropes course--$5, pony rides--$3). We just didn't have time to check out the other stuff. There were some shows, but not sure what. Old fashioned carolers walked the streets. Hope we can go back next year. We had a wonderful time together.
There are gift shops, candy stores, bakery, etc. Many of the workers are volunteers & very helpful & friendly.

“A Christmas must!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

Loved the train and stagecoach ride. Food was great. Coffee shop awesome. Arcade play was free. Not crowded! Live Christmas music in saloon. Clean, friendly and organized. Difficult to get tickets due to limited availability. Wish it was open a little longer than 4 hours.

“A wonderful family christmas event”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We went on 12/09/2012 it more than exceeded our expectations. We have a 5 year old boy and it was more than the perfect place to celebrate the holiday. Overall we are not overly religous. They don't try and push anything on you and you can barely notice a church puts on the event. Also to be honest, we noticed everyone who went were all middle class, you feel completely safe. It is however in the middle of nowhere. About an hour from east side of Tulsa.
We arrived at 6pm and left around 9:30. Plenty of things to do, the good part about this is majority are free, minus your ticket price which at $10.00/each is cheap. Train ride, wagon ride, puppet show (yes, the puppet show was actually very good and funny).

Santa if free to see but $10 - $20 for pictures. A few tips on seeing santa: Since it was our first time we didnt know they hand out pagers (like a resturante) when its your turn they buzz. So go get your pager early before anything else you do. Also what we really liked is your not standing in a huge line to see Santa. You go into a lobby with about 10 other familys who got buzzed. Then they call your name and take you into a room with Santa. Your family is the only people besides the photographers in there with Santa. So its relaxed and you can take your time and actually enjoy getting the perfect photo!

The food: Average cost is 7$ a meal. For example, you get a hamburger, fries and drink for the $7. The lines went long and its a smooth streemlined process. Mulitple types of places to choose from.

So for the 3.5 hours we were there, we only paid for food and pictures - total 35$ and were wore out by the time we left. Closing is around 10pm.

If you want to light up your life and really get great entertainment and get in the holiday mood. Visit this place and get your tickets beggining of novembe bc they sell out within 2 days! Highly recommend taking your family!

“Good Family Outing”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We took several grandkids and their parents to the Christmas train last year (2011). We had a great time! There is plenty to do. Many things were free, but some cost (minimal). We ate at a Barbecue place inside. It was good - not outstanding. Yes, I would do it again. and Yes, I would recommend it to a friend.
