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.

This place is great for families with kids 14-. Fun attractions, playground and show, and the kids love mining for "gold" which they get to keep. We try to go every year.

People working there are passionate about their work and very committed to your enjoyment. The accompanying restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is good.
