  • Good for kids up to 10. They have great Wild West show, canoe rides, and nice train ride which is especially good in the fall when you go to the Chief to exchange beads for a pumpkin. Great museum...  more »
  • We went during the wild west days, where entry was free. This worked out great as the rides and attractions are geared towards kids. The unlimited attractions/ride wristband was 19$ each and the kids....  more »
  • Brought grandkids there and it was mostly enjoyable. They were not to impressed with the showthey thought there would be more activity instead of singing. Overall was a good day. Really enjoyed...  more »

  • This place was so much fun. My 5 year old had a fantastic time. My 12 year old had a decent time. We really enjoyed the show. It was so cute. Love to go back.
  • I took my 13 and 16 year old daughters, and told them that they were on the older side for this place. But we ended up having a great time, saw two kinda silly western shows, planned for fool's gold in their generous stream, ate ice cream sitting on a saddle, and enjoyed the surprisingly large museum. All the little kids there seemed to be having a good time, especially on the little roller coaster and pony ride. Can't wait to see what Ron does with the place.
  • First time there and really liked it. Show was a little strange but attractions were good. I have a 5 and 3 y/o and they liked almost everything. 5 year old enjoyed the mini rollercoaster that she rode it lots of times, and 3 year old the carousel and gold mining. For me and my wife the escape room was great, we really liked it and we did it in 15 minutes!!! And last, but not least, what we liked the most were the attendants, they were friendly and they even explained our kids how to do the things they were doing, and they even volunteer to take pictures of the 4 of us.
  • Fair Value, worth the trip. Best for ages 4-11 probably, more likely to peek the interest of boy more than girls. Not that girls don't get into trains, roller coasters, and all around general play, but boys are usually more into Cowboys, the slingshots, cork guns, and lovely ladies ;-) Free parking, reasonably priced snack shack, gift shop, and lifetime memories ensure the trip to the boonies is worth while.
  • Really hasn't changed much. However, the show was more Broadway then stunts and fights, like I remember when I was little. I took my son to bring him to show him some of my nostalgia and was disappointed in the price for what was offered. The gift shop was outrageously priced... and the snack shop is minimal in choice and not many healthy options. He loved panning for fools gold and the horse ride. Some staff were friendly and warm, while others seemed unaware of my son waiting for help (on a slow day). I am not sure it's worth coming back to until there are improvements. Sad it wasn't a better experience. Fingers crossed Onesti improves this place with his reputation for turning things around and improving establishments.
