What is there to do?

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!
