Open May-October Wild West Themed Amusement Park, Museum and so much more! All rides and attractions are included in one admission price. Moms, Dads and Grandparents are sure to have fun too! Experience a day of fun as you pan for gold pyrite at the Sweet Phyllis Mine, shooting slingshots at Huck Finn's, and watching a live action Wild West Show. The attached museum is full of artifacts from the Old West, inventions and technology from the great period of the late 1800s. A day at Donley's Wild West Town will create memories that will last a lifetime. We look forward to your visit and can't wait to show you the town.

Staff was excellent, very friendly and in character. Overall a little rundown but definitely worth a day trip. We spent about four hours here and my four, five and nine-year-old enjoyed it very much.

We took our grandkids there for the day. They didn't want to leave. Loved the show! It was very kid friendly. Small enough to keep track of them but large enough for lots of fun for them!!!!! Thumbs up to the great staff

Fun place for adults with children. Lots of fun things to do. Cost very reasonable and very focused on making the children enjoy each event and ride. Close to Union Railway Museum which makes this a great half day trip.

The restaurant is closed. Only the ice cream parlor, saloon and candy store are serving food. Prices are reasonable.
