Where are we going today?

Y'all ready for some lasso swinging, gun slingin' adventure in New Jersey? Just head on over to Wild West City and then you'll be back in the Old West in no time!

Wild West City is a super fun re-creation of an old Wild West town filled with some pretty cool yee haw activities!

When you arrive, you can't help but enter Main Street - and it's actually the year 1880! You will arrive in Dodge City, Kansas - but with a difference. You will have to keep your wits about you too, because there is always something going on!

You can just take it all in when you get there, or you can get straight into enjoying one of the 22 live action shows that keep that excitement going!

Don't forget to check out the buildings too, because they contain museum-quality exhibits displaying period artifacts. You might be surprised what you learn about life back in the day!

Have you ever wanted to enjoy a Stagecoach ride? Well, the Wells Fargo stage boards for the great West all across the day. The teamster just collects your tickets, then gets those horses ready to take you off to your dream of a better life! If you prefer the locomotives, you can enjoy the narrow gauge train that winds 3/4 down into the Wild West City forest. Watch out for those desperados!

And what Wild West City wouldn't be complete without animals! Kids can have a great time getting pu close to the Barnyard Zoo with critters like Billy the goat, and Gertrude the pig! If you want to really have a hands-on animal experience, try out the Pony Rides. 

With panning for gold and mini golf to top off the experience, why not spend the day back in 1880 - you never know - you might never want to head back to the future!

    We love this place! My husband went as a child in the '80's and has many fond memories. Now we share this unique experience with our two kids, 6 and 9. We have gone for the past 4 years and always have a great time. There is simply no other place like it! Don't compare it to Disney or 6 Flags - keep in mind that this is a family run park, which has been in business for close to 60 years- that alone is amazing! It is rustic, but that is in keeping with the theme. See it as an opportunity to teach your kids about American history in a way...Read More

    My family went to Wild West City today! Our daughter is 6 years old, And she had a great time. She does however enjoy watching "westerns" with Daddy. But I believe even if she was not a fan she would have still enjoyed the day here! This is one of the last "Old West" themed parks in the country, If your a fan of westerns or a history buff this place is worth the price of admission! Which was low (by the way). The staff was wonderful and the animals appeared well cared for. Food prices were a little steep, but you have a picnic lunch option if you...Read More

We love this place! My husband went as a child in the '80's and has many fond memories. Now we share this unique experience with our two kids, 6 and 9. We have gone for the past 4 years and always have a great time. There is simply no other place like it! Don't compare it to Disney or 6 Flags - keep in mind that this is a family run park, which has been in business for close to 60 years- that alone is amazing! It is rustic, but that is in keeping with the theme. See it as an opportunity to teach your kids about American history in a way that they will always remember. Today we went to see the Native American show for the first time and I was totally impressed. They have real members of the Mohawk tribe explaining their culture and even get audience members to dance with them. We will certainly go back again. Don't complain about the gift shop, just buy a cowboy hat and join in the fun. Someone described the shop as "dusty"- what do you expect, this is the Wild West, not a hospital! The roads are made of dirt and the horses trot along them - don't wear high heels or your best outift. There are little museums with antiques, a mini golf course, a petting zoo, a stage coach, a mining exhibit and a train ride. People who complain that they were "nickled and dimed" should appreciate that this is still an inexpensive day out. You can buy the food there (burgers, pizza, candy), or do as we do and bring your own sandwiches, snacks and water - they encourage that and provide picnic tables. The actors and staff are very friendly (we especially like Marshalls Ken and Glen). Most of them have been there for years, and some of them are second generation now, which says a lot. Obviously the owners take care of them to inspire this kind of loyalty. They encourage the children to participate in the action, which enhances the experience. Other than Woody from "Toy Story", what do our children know about cowboys? When do they see Native Americans? Don't miss out on this place. Go once, give it a fair shot, and tell me you don't love it too.

All in all I give this place 5 stars!
