Trail Dust Town, Tucson

(4.1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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!

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.

  • A fun place to visit especially with kids. Also includes a very good moderately priced restaurant. We took an out-of town group and they loved it 
  • We love visiting Trail Dust town, they have live shows, train rides, panning for gold, restaurants, ice cream shops and a couple carnival type rides. You don't have to dine at the restaurants to enjoy...  more »
  • I love the steak at Pinnacle Peak, the live shows are so much fun (loud). The magic show is great and I love the candy store there.

  • We visited the first Friday of August and the kids enjoyed unlimited rides for $4 for each wristband (kids under 3 ride free). Rides include a train tour around the area, carousel, and a kid size ferris wheel. It's a unique old West themed place with unique shops and restaurants. Friday's they have a small farmers market. All in all, it's a good place to bring young kids.
  • Always worth a visit! Bring the kids and ride the train, carousel, or ferris wheel! See the stunt show!
  • Fun place to take the kids. If you're into western-themed touristy things, it'll probably good for you too. Walking around is free, but you don't get much for that. If you're planning on doing the carnival rides for kids, splurge on the wristbands. Don't use the wooden nickels; they're not worth it. The gun show is fun, but generally not for for smaller children.
  • Have train rides, magic shows and good places to eat. Lot of fun.
  • Everything it's amazing here, starting with the employees(which are great) to the town itself. We took our kids here and they loved it. And the most amazing are the Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros, just wow!!! The stunts they perform are breathtaking. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
