No admission fee and new name when Six Gun City reopens
In recent years, attendance hasn't been as strong as it once was. In fact, the park didn't open right away last summer. Brady said the family considered selling it, but ultimately decided not to.
In many families, both parents are working these days, sometimes two jobs, he said. And teens are working more than they used to.
That makes it harder to coordinate a family vacation where everyone can get away at one time. And, when every family member has to pay admission, it can get expensive, he added.
Doing away with admission is not the only change planned.
About 10 of the buildings no longer in use will be renovated into cabins with a western theme.
Brady said they will probably be changing the hours of the park somewhat to allow it to be open later to accommodate planned bonfires and eventually a barbecue pit and music events.
"This will open up a whole new aspect to the park," he said. "I personally believe this will become really popular."
Some of the cowboy skits Six Gun City was known for won't be done any more, but different ones will be added, Brady said.
The picnic pavilion will be available for private events, such as company picnics, family reunions and birthday parties.
"We believe that what we're doing will build attendance," he said.
Absolutely, he told them. Perhaps when they're done walking, they'll stop for a small snack before they leave.
