“Must See!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Traveled to San Antonio, Texas a few years back. Will never forget the memorable tour we took at the Enchanted Springs Ranch. We arrived early one morning and being we were there just as they opened we had a PERSONAL tour. If I have the opportunity again I will definitely return to do this tour all over again. Try it, YOU will love it.

“What a trip back in time!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I made this the last place on our week log vacation to the San Antonio area thinking it may not be as fun as all the other attractions we went to. Boy! Was I wrong! I found this place to be the BEST! Unfortunately we got their late and didn't get to do all things they had on their daily schedule. I'd recommend calling to find out when the first show is starting and plan an entire day there. You can take a lunch and eat under the trees. It's like taking a step back into the 1800's. It has a laid back feel, not commercial and not expensive, especially given the hourly entertainment. The people are very friendly. I can't say enough good. My 2 girls (10 y.o.) enjoyed exploring in the buildings and the shows. Be sure to take a camera, so you can get a picture with Woodrow the Texas Longhorn. We will be going back.

“Great Time”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Took my kids (12 & 10) this weekend and we all had a blast. They got to ride a horse & see some exotic animals and we all enjoyed the Pistol Packin' Paula show. A good time close to home!

“Fun Family Attraction”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped by on the way to Kerrville a couple of weeks ago. Didn't know what to expect but glad we did. Was surprised it wasn't crowded for a Friday afternoon. We arrived just in time for Pistol Packin' Paula's show. It was fun and entertaining. She put on a good show twirling pistols and using a bull whip. Kept the crowd involved and focused on the kids. She was quite good and has won several awards to prove it. The old western town was neat. They had a longhorn steer that the kids could set on and have their pictures taken. We went on a tractor driven tour of the property and saw some wildlife. They had another comedy street show which also involved the audience. We had no kids with us but you could see the ones there were enjoying it all. Nice place for the entire family.

“Pistol Packin Paula is highlight here!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

During July vacation took 7 year old son here. Old West buildings but only a few can be entered. Disappointed in that. Pistol Packin Paula is the highlight at this show. She twirls guns, ropes and has a shoot out on the square. Son really loved that.
