Wild West World Overview:

A modestly sized park, Wild West World offered rides and ambiance themed to the Old West (duh!). Instead of extravagant attractions along the lines of Disney's Big Thunder Mountain, Wild West World featured mostly off-the-shelf rides with a Wild West overlay.

At its opening in May 2007, the park did not have any major roller coasters (or other signature attractions). Wild West World promised a world-class coaster for its 2009 season, however, the park never made it past its first season. In addition to the rides, the park offered ambitious stage shows, and had a year-round schedule of shows at its Johnny Western Theatre.
