The Flying W Ranch is a working mountain cattle ranch, and since 1953, a tourism and entertainment venue in the foothills of Colorado Springs, Colorado. From May to October, the ranch features outdoor chuckwagon suppers typical of those served on cattle drives, and western style living history areas. After burning in the Waldo Canyon Fire in 2012, the owners are rebuilding the Ranch and reopening the Chuckwagon Supper for the 2020 season, with its first dinner and show on May 21, 2020.

  • Everything about this place is beautiful! Lots of fun things to do and see. Great parking, clean perfect restrooms. There were a lot of people attending the dinner, they gave us table number 12. The food line was so efficient! They got 400+ people through the food line in 20 minutes! Food was outstanding, nobody goes away hungry! The music is great, very nice dinner show. We LOVED every minute of being here at this beautiful ranch! We also got to see some wild bighorn sheep up on a mountain, just looking down at us. Played horse shoes with the boys, threw hatchets, shot bow and arrows too. Animals to see and pet = tiny goats, donkeys, chickens, ducks, Shetland ponies. I highly recommend this place, it will remain a very fond memory. Thank you for such a great night!
  • I had a great time at the Flying W Ranch. The scenery was gorgeous, the animals were friendly... well except the turkeys, but they were cool. The food was served in hefty portions and was so much better than I would have expected from "similar" types of attractions I've been to. The brisket, baked potatoes and biscuits were perfect. The show was a great mix of music, storytelling and fun jokes. I had a great time and will suggest to anyone visiting the area. I would suggest this for family trips as well as adults looking for something a little different from their usual routine.
  • You have to come out and see this place. It’s a timeless tradition in Colorado that no trip is complete with out. The grounds are breathtaking. The kids loved riding the train and seeing the woman at the loom, weaving a rug. We loved petting the animals and the food was very delicious and there was lots of it! I can’t say enough about the owners and staff of this family run business. They are top notch and on deck each and every show. Thank you for sticking it out and bringing back the ranch. God bless you.
  • Visited with family in 2012 and have waited for it's reopening to visit again! My husband and I loved the show and the food was amazing! Awesome spot and I love their new post-fire set up. 10/10 recommend this dinner experience!
  • Amazing experience. Owners put their whole heart in everything. Atmosphere is awesome. Chuck wagon dinner was delicious. It's perfect for weddings(which is what I was in when I experienced the ranch) or any other family gathering.
