Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
In the early 1950s, Tucson was a sleepy desert community of approximately 45,000 people.

Around this time, this conglomeration of buildings developed into a western-themed commercial complex known as Trail Dust Town. Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse quickly gained popularity and became the anchor of this complex. Today, Pinnacle Peak and Trail Dust Town are rich with their own history, and people come from all over the world to experience the old west at these centerpieces of Tucson.

Don't miss a wild west stunt show by the Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros! Showing nightly at 7 and 8 PM, the shows are full of lots of high-falls, low-falls, gunfights, fistfights, explosions, and family friendly slapstick comedy! Visit The Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Pistoleros.stuntshow

Take a ride on the CP Huntington Railroad! The miniature train is fun for all ages, and its path reveals some of Trail Dust Town's hidden gems.

Enjoy the carousel and Ferris wheel at Polly Anna Park! This new park is a beautiful area perfect for an evening of rides, popcorn, and taking in the blissful Tucson weather. Polly Anna Park is also available for birthday parties! Contact us today at (520) 296-4551 ext 9 to find out more information.

Home to many shops, Trail Dust Town is a perfect destination for gifts and souvenirs. See a list of shops here: http://traildusttown.com/shops

Trail Dust Town is also home to the elegant Savoy Opera House- a beautiful venue with Victorian charm. The Savoy is ideal for weddings, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras, and more. Visit The Savoy Opera House on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SavoyOperaHouse

The Museum Of The Horse Soldier features an impressive collection of original United States Cavalry artifacts. Uniforms, weapons, and equipment dating from the Civil War through the end of the mounted cavalry in 1942 are on display.

  • A tiny bit hokey, but clean, inexpensive entertainment. We got the $12 wristband and did it all, panning for gold, tiny train ride, strolled the streets, watched the wild west show (kinda cute!!) And ...  more »

  • If you like the old west, you'll love this place! The shooting gallery is a lot of fun. The stunt shows are cool. I really like the old-timey candy store too. And...Pinnacle Peak has the best steak dinners in the world.
  • Good family attraction set in an old west theme. Pretty cool when they start the gun fight. Pinnacle Peak steak house is within the town.
  • It,s ok but not like it used too be. Prices are too high. Bread is not soft but too hard, beans are good. Service on big parties are good. Would probably not go back.
  • Pinnacle Peak restaurant is fun. We took a crowd of 35 for our wedding rehearsal dinner. The kids in the group enjoyed the train ride and the carnival rides. The show with the gunfights and stunts is entertaining as well. The site as a whole is getting a little worn down and could use a face-lift to renew its appeal. I most recently was at Trail Dust Town for their Friday farmers market. I'd rate that a 3. There really weren't enough booths to make it worthwhile.
  • Loved this place since I was a kid!!! Even if you're not having divert at Pinnacle Peaks, it's a MUST see Tucson attraction! From the live stunt show (check their website for current times), to the shotgun saloon; from the gift shop, to the cute little time remanent nook and crannies; from the train ride, to the Chocolate Depot; from the Faris wheel, to the merry-go-round, you're whole family will enjoy a WHOLE evening of entertainment.
