Discover Legends of the Wild West at Old Tucson

Old Tucson Nightfall Big Spring Legends of the Wild West

Step into the heart of the Old West and embark on an unforgettable adventure at Old Tucson. For 85 incredible years, Old Tucson has been an icon of Western movie magic and a beacon of quality family fun. Initially built in 1939 by Columbia Studios for the movie "Arizona" starring Jean Arthur and William Holden, this iconic location is now a one-of-a-kind amusement park that promises an unforgettable Western experience.


In 2024, Old Tucson presents Legends of the Wild West, where characters step out of history books and onto our stages. Be prepared for interactive shows featuring daring outlaws and legendary lawmen and witness stories coming to life through live characters like Calamity Jane, Wyatt Earp, Jessie James, and Cole Younger. You might even find yourself part of a train or stagecoach robbery, adding a genuinely immersive element to your experience.


New to Old Tucson is the "The Ballad of Booney Hill," a one-of-a-kind musical production staged inside the Grand Palace Saloon. This original piece tells the true story of Billy the Kid during the Lincoln County Wars.


Starting mid-March, Old Tucson introduces the Big Spring, a celebration of everything oversized and big! Challenge your family and friends to games on a massive 10' checkerboard, indulge in giant pretzels and drinks at Big Jake's, and meet Big Jake himself, a character brought to life for this special occasion. 


For those seeking a different kind of adventure, Old Tucson offers historical tours or spine-chilling ghost tours on select days and nights. Learn about the park's rich history on a special tour, or get locked inside Old Tucson at night with only lanterns to guide you. Bring your own meters for ghost investigations and uncover tales of the supernatural.  


Take advantage of the $5 discount or secure a spot for the limited special events and tours by getting your tickets online. Day tickets are sold at the gate or The Last Outpost Gift Shop, open all year in the parking lot. Old Tucson is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas, and parking is free.
