“Fun and exciting Old Tucson”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Took granddaughter and great granddaughter. Little one had to have horse ride. They are experienced with the horses and people of all ages! Train was a HOOT, shoot out had you on the edge of your seat, stage coach ride, haunted mine tour, shooting gallery, pickles and pop corn! Cars was the hit of the day! Almost taught a 6 yr old how to drive!

“A step back in time”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

My first impression of Old Tucson was that I had just stepped back in time--the old saloons, the clydsdale horses pulling the stagecoach, the horses we could ride, the old shootouts they played, the old old tomstones to see! The ok corral--just the time warp of yesterday! I highly recommend going if you to want to step back in time! i cant wait to go again and be a part of the past once again!

“A Step Back in Time”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Amazing things from movies of long ago. Clothing from shows like Bananza and Little House on display. Want to take a walk in John Wayne's foot steps, this is the place. Fun stage coach too!

“Bad opening times”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Area is closed during the week. So you can't use a stay in Tucson for visiting it, when youÄre there during the week.

“Fun tourist trap”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

You will have a good time if you're not expecting a Disney level quality. It could be better maintained and staffed but it's still a fun day, especially for western movie buffs and younger visitors.
