“Fun Place to Go”
Reviewed August 22, 2010

It is a fun place to take the kids to see what a ranch is like. They enjoyed seeing all of the animals on the tractor ride as well as sitting on Woodrow the Long Horn and riding a horse. It is interesting to learn about cowboy life from the puppet show and the Pistol Packin' Paula show was great. The staff is very friendly.

“JUST A STATE OF MIND”
Reviewed August 5, 2010

Just want to tell everyone how much fun my Wife and I had at the ranch, the first night you had diner and show this year. We live in central Texas and weren't sure how much entertaiment this activity would be. Let me tell you it was so pleasant and peaceful a setting, as we have experienced in quite awhile. Your staff were so accomadating and went out of their way to provide a great show, from the singing at the diner, to the show in the arena, the tour of the grounds and the folks in the gift shop.
The food was excellent and the setting was great. The best part of the evening were the looks on all the kids faces, it was just what we needed, we came away in such a peaceful state of mind, it jus felt right, God Bless you all thanks for the good time. Thanks again from two seniors from the West.

“NOT THE BEST !!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2010

The wagon ride was about the best of show!! The young guy driving the tractor was really nice. He made the entire event good from the western skit to the tractor ride.

If you have small children, it might be a good place to visit. If you are all adults in your party "don't go". Somewhat boring.

If there were a place to get refreshments and some snacks that would help make the place a little more inviting maybe.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed August 4, 2010

An inexpensive way to have fun with kids! Everything is included with admission.....tractor ride, puppet show, pistal packin paula (the best part), stunt show (a little cheesy), and a short hose back ride for the kids and they get to sit on a longhorn...you can take your own pictures! (I was pleased they did not try to push a professional photogropher on us). The staff was warm and welcoming...made you feel like family. We did not go to the chuck wagon dinner....but it sounds great.

“The best of the west in the 'heart of Texas'.”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

Enchanted Springs Ranch is well worth the trip for all ages. The entire staff was awesome & genuine and made all of us feel welcome & appreciated. We enjoyed the western town, the cowboy history, the gunslingin' show, the animals, the incredible music (unexpected extra), and the excellent chow. The kids & adults in our group learned a lot & had the best time..it was the perfect Texas ending to our family reunion.
