Is Old Tucson handicap accessible?

Old Tucson is handicapped accessible throughout most of the park. Many guests come in wheelchairs, and we have a limited number of wheelchairs available for use on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. The streets are dirt, with areas of soft sand for the stunt show, but most is hard-packed. We urge people in wheelchairs to have someone accompany them to help with some of the longer distances between attractions.

Does Old Tucson allow pets?

Old Tucson is pet friendly! If you’ve got a pet that is friendly to the public and is kept on a leash, bring them along! Note: there is gun fire during part of the day for the stunt and cowboy shows. Pets are welcome all throughout the park, with the exception of our three restaurants.
(The Elixir, Pony Express and Big Jake’s BBQ) due to Arizona health codes.
