“Fun family activity”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

We have been to the ranch more than once and my children just love seeing all the animals. It's in a beautiful TX hill country setting, with flowing grasses, mesquite trees and a creek. We have attended a party there as well, and it was a great venue. The owners and staff are very friendly and run a good business. I would highly recommend this as a fun activity for a family.

“Fun for the kids!”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

I took my nephews (7 years old), and they had a ball! They were practicing their pistol twirling for days after we saw the show with Pistol Paula. They also had fun on the tractor ride through the property seeing the different animals. They liked being put in "jail", too! Getting these guys away from their electronic games without whining was a treat! A couple of hours diversion for the family!

“A personal "Theme Park" visit with fun for every age.”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

We had found this attraction online and left San Antonio in search of something unique, with a taste of the old west. Even in 100 degree plus heat, we had an amazing visit that we're still talking about. As mentioned, we loved the pony rides, sitting on the longhorn cattle, and the puppet show which educated about the "real" west. Pistol Packin' Paula gave an amazing show which our 6 and 8-year-old loved. The wagon ride through the ranch showed us beautiful animals living in harmony. But the best part was the personal attention. We arrived after lunch and were afraid we might have to miss part of the attractions. Not to worry. The staff assured us that they would not allow us to miss anything, and we didn't. There was something so refreshing about an attraction that seemed to care more about the guest than the dollar. Perhaps a step back in time. If you're looking for glitz and glamour, this is not for you, but if you and your children would like to know more about cowboys and the real west, I highly recommend it.
