Trip Planner:   USA  /  Arizona  /  Tucson  /  Old Tucson
Experience life in the Old West at Old Tucson by strolling down the streets fit for a town from 1853 to 1912. Films like "El Dorado" were shot here, as well as several episodes of the TV show "Little House on the Prairie." Living history demonstrations and saloon dancers bring the town to life, or for more of the movie aspect, take in a stunt show. Tour the studios to get a better picture of specific aspects of life in the Old West, like the demands on the town sheriff, or the danger of rail travel. Don't miss your chance to dress up in Western attire and have your photo taken. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Tucson fast, fun, and easy.

  • We came in the other way and the road was so windy and twisty that at one point we thought we were about to be the next Thelma and Louise, so thank God for good brakes and going slow. When you get the...  more »
  • We took an afternoon for this visit, but the time was more than enough. The actors give themselves really tired, but unfortunately we expected more. Certain buildings are definitely getting older and could be gently renovated. Many things are also simply destroyed before old age and would no longer be used in old films. At $20 admission, you should certainly have a few dollars for renovation.

  • First I must say I was really not wanting to go to this place. I am not a fan of old Western movies. This place is where many Western movies have been filmed. They give you a program that has events l...  more »

  • Many famous Westerns were filmed on these grounds. Lots of entertaining exhibits and old wild west reenactments, which are fun for the whole family. The actors and staff are quite versatile and friendly. The highlight of my visit was the locomotive which takes you all around the property in about 6 minutes. Such a fun ride! Awesome experience overall.
  • Wonderful place to take visitors from out of the Country. The shows are a spectacle, funny with good acting and singing. I love drinking a beer in the saloon, while watching a show; an excellent variety of non-alcoholic drinks are available. I get a kick out of how much my guests enjoy it. Where the Old West comes alive - for sure!
  • It seems we only ever go to Old Tucson Studios for the Terrain Race these days. We get to see all sorts of parts of the acreage we don't normally see. The race was better this year than any in the past! There were so many more obstacles, and they ranged abilities. Some were hard for me and easy for the kids, and some were hard for the kids, easier for me, some were hard for all of us, and some were just fun!
  • Very surprised how good this place is. Lots of shows and things to do all day. Food was.surprisingly good and priced normally unlike other theme parks. Kids 2 to 10 will love this place.
  • For the money, this was a fun family outing. The three actors/stunt men were worth the price of admission alone. Make sure you see the stunt show. Other aspects of Old Tucson could be significantly improved. Particularly the dining and drinking experience. There is so much they could do with an old style saloon and drinking experience that is really a lost opportunity. The food options are limited and the quality of food was relatively poor. The panning for gold experience for $3 was well worth the money. The haunted house was pretty good as well. Plan to spend about 4 hours here.
