“Family Fun”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

My daughter, my husband, my grandson, and I spent a day enjoying this attraction. The highlight of the day for my grandson was the tractor ride to see the exotic animals. We enjoyed the Pistol Packin Paula show, as well as the stunt show and and the medicine man. As others have said, this is a family-run operation, so do not expect Disneyland quality. It is rustic but lots of fun. Our grandson loved sitting on Woodrow the longhorn.

Lots of fun for the entire family! Visited the ranch as part of our summer family get-together; members ranging for 60 to 9 months. Very enjoyable place. The kids loved sitting on the longhorn and having their picture taken. One thing special about this place - no charge to sit on the longhorn and parents could take all the pictures they wanted. The trip through the farm was also fun - lots of very unique animals. All of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Although there weren't that many people when we were there, the actors put their all into the show! Pistol Packin' Paula was a hoot! Definitely recommend this as a family attraction!

“This place is crazy awesome.”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is like jumping into the wayback machine and being spit out into the Wild West. The buildings are fantastic. The people genuinely care and are invested in this ranch. So much care has been put into the creation of this ranch - from the buildings to the various exhibits. And if you are the type of person that concerns themselves with restrooms - these are some of the best public restrooms ever. I am not joking. Plenty to do and see. Animals galore. Pistol Packin' Paula is a gem. If you are in this neck of the woods you won't want to miss spending time at the Enchanted Springs. Plus this location is used in lots of movies/tv shows. Because it's authentic!
