Yes, it's worth it, but it's a far drive and it's going to be hot outside! So...depends when you go.

I've heard that Oprah really loved it! And yet, I've never been there. When people live in an area a long time, they tend to get in a rut, not going to the places that people come from far away to see. I should go sometime!

We have been 2 times... The first time was for a fundraiser that my kids were working and the second time there was a Groupon... I think it was worth it with the Groupon... I don't know what full price is, so I can't say if I would have paid it...

It is all pretty realistic... The saloon and the wooden buildings, etc... The old time church is nice... They have a pretty neat skit with a cowgirl and a bad guy, they have a shoot out, etc... The kids thought it was fun... You can pay something like $5 to have a person in your party arrested... You make up the crime, for our teenage daughter we said her crime was too much internet usage... So they arrested her, the sheriff made a big deal about it... She had to put on a black and white striped shirt and hat... They made her do some silly things and put her in an old fashion police wooden wagon thingy with bars... Then she gets a certificate type paper with her crime and her sentence and you can take picture with the Sheriff... It was fun for them... You don't know when they are going to arrest so it's fun for the sheriff to go around yelling out the persons name who is under arrest...

They also have a pretty decent wagon ride that goes behind the western town and you see animals and go over a stream... It's a nice ride, the kids really enjoyed it...

We did not eat there, so I can not comment on the food...

They also bring out a HUGE longhorn that the kids can sit on and take pictures... This is free...

If your child is into this kind of stuff, he/she would enjoy it, but if they are bored by the wild west feel, they may not enjoy it as much...
