Old Tucson reviews
Unfortunately Old Tucson has closed indefinitely and turned over to the county. It was a wonderful place for fun and learning a bit about the Old West. We will miss it dearly. more »
This is a fun day trip for the entire family. They have a carousel and car rides for the kids (and adults). They have hourly entertainment such as reenactments and gunfights. Great food and... more »
Fright night for old Tucson was an amazing experience, with excellent haunted houses, and decent actors, considering most are locals. Tickets to get in were reasonably priced, but once in, most of the entertainment cost extra. The maps that they provided weren't very good, and I ended up having to ask the workers where to go! The workers though, were all very nice and helpful. I will totally go again
I attend a few venues here each year. This is part old historic movie set and part theme park. As cool as the place is, there are no bargains to be had in food. A bottled soft drink is around $3.50. A candy bar, $2.75. Other hot fare will set you back around 10 bucks each. So either eat first in town as there are not other places nearby, or sneak your snacks in. If you like old westerns and their filming locations this is your place. Go nuts, this place is cool. The staff are great.
