Everyone there seemed to enjoy visiting it. It looks very realistic. But it was overpriced and the mine tour in particular was very short and I have my doubts it was ever part of a real mine. Some of the "buildings" were closed. I admit I was a bit annoyed when I had to wait for someone to sell me a mine tour ticket, but the guide stopped his tour and came to help me when no one else did. The guide was full of personality, but it really didn't cover the short tour of what was supposed to be a former mine. It had some artifacts, but I don't really think it was worth 9.00. I wished I had time to take the train ride. But it was 106 degrees and I didn't feel like waiting around for 30 minutes. It is the only narrow gauge railroad in AZ. But it is pretty short, only a 20 minute round trip. Kids will love it no doubt. People will like the gift shops. Best to visit when it is cooler.

This was a fun place to stop before starting the Apache Trail. We got there early and building slowly opened at 10am. May have been a better experience if we got to the town later in the day. Did buy a few things when we were there.

Authentic looking, unfortunately many of the places were closed. We went on a Monday , about 1pm in 102 degree heat. Stores are very interesting and reasonably priced. Very scenic, enjoyed the railroad tour ride.

This was a cool Wild West town! We bought the combo ticket for the train ride, mine tour, and mystery shack. It was very interesting and we learned a lot. The coolest thing to do there was the snake display. It was amazing to see so many critters that are common in Arizona! The Superstition Mountains are in view too. There was also some unique stores and the prices were very reasonable. We all enjoyed it!

This is a kitschy little ghost town in AZ and was on our way back from the Dolly Steamboat. We had a lot of fun walking around, looking at the buildings, and visiting the attractions. The Saloon is terrific and the crooked house and reptile museum were fun. A few things weren't open when we visited. If you're in the area, I recommend stopping by.
