Wild West City

We were in the Wild West City. It’s western heritage theme park recreating 1880’s life in Dodge City, Kansas. Pretty funny, though not as I had imagined.

There is a large and wide Main street, where actors play out scenes of the City, almost every half hour. We immediately got on a funny scene with the Undertaker in the cylinder, Sheriff (Marshall) and Drunken Cowboy. Of course, they shot … Undertaker and put him in a coffin, nailed the lid, and … the coffin had no bottom, and the Undertaker was tenacious guy… but they needed a corpse 🙂 On the street ride on the mail coach (it was also robbed during one of scenes)

On the Main street every set of buildings, from the Sheriff’s (Marshall’s) Office, Banks and Post offices, to the Saloon and the Opera House. Most of these houses – mini-museums with artifacts of those years. It was interesting to look at the barber chair, antique sewing machines, inside the bank building and the post office…

Tonsorial Parlor.

On the bypass road there is the house of a scout, a small school (the lady at the entrance depicting the teacher kindly pose for me), a tiny church and a small cemetery with funny inscriptions.

There is a lot of children in cowboy hats and with pistols. Children are also attracted into the presentation, for example, the whole town caught the perpetrators and offered the children choose to hang them immediately or let him go. The correct answer was "to bring to justice", but the children chose the "hang":)

Two more entertaining place – riding on a pony and a small train that travels on by funny life-size statues of deer and bears, abandoned mines, through the tunnel, with stop for Train Robbery (The bandit asked "Do you have any gold or money?" Matt yawned and replied, "Yes!" He’s a real brave cowboy :)), traces of Indians. train makes the circle and returns to the station.
