This old west town has everything you would expect to see in a real western town if you stepped back in time. You will enjoy historically accurate medicine shows, gun fights, saloon shows, can-can dancers, gunfights, jailbreaks, trick shooting and more!! There are period interpreters in the streets performing the rolls of cowboys, storeowners, residents and outlaws!!
My kids LOVE it. We have been twice and can’t wait for this year, too.
At 10:15 daily the kids can get sworn in as deputies and enjoy old-timey puppet and magic shows.
You can get a warrant and have the sheriff put the kids or hubs in jail. Awesome! This will be happening again.
There are sing-a-longs and story times and historic games. They can take a train ride, pony ride and a covered wagon ride! They can even pan for gold!
They can learn a little 3 card Monty.
Or learn some new skills.
Good old-fashioned family fun!
