There is so much detail, in fact, that it is easy to miss it all. With the crowds rolling by, the lure of a Fast Pass calling you to an attraction, or kids pulling you one way or the other, it is easy to just walk past some of the neat little experiences Disney has in store. When walking through the lands of the Magic Kingdom, take a moment to look around. If you do, you will certainly gain a greater appreciation – or infatuation - than you may already have.
Such is the case in Frontierland. Think about it for a moment. You are in the middle of the old west. There are log buildings around you and a mountain or two in the distance. Just around the bend is a riverboat – maybe ripe for gamblers. Who knows, Maverick may be waiting come out of the Diamond Horseshoe ahead on his way to board for another game of poker. What else is missing that might make a 9-year old boy feel fully immersed in the old west? Yep – a shootout.
Enter the Frontierland Shooting Arcade. For $1, you get 25 shots using a .54-caliber Hawkins buffalo riffle, each of which can be used to hit any one of 100 different targets on Boot Hill in Tombstone, Arizona. You’ll be a “Daisy if you do” (yep, I went there – did you expect anything else). A perfect spot for another interactive attraction. Though not free, it isn’t budget busting either. And, if you really want some fun, challenge your family and friends to a shootout. See who wins!
