Frontierland Shootin' Arcade

Return to Frontierland Attractions

The Story: Ye ha! Saddle up partners and mosey on over to the Frontierland Shootin' Arcade! While here you'll stop by the quiet town of Boothill which just happens to be one of the greatest spots in the west to practice your shootin' skills! While here you can shoot everything from cans and bottles, to tombstones, and even a mine train (lucky #13 of course)! So take out your George Washington and go on take the most 35 shots of your life!

Height Restriction: None
Attraction Length: 35 shots which usually lasts a minute or two
Fastpass? No

The History: The attraction opened up with Walt Disney World on October 1, 1971 and at the time shot actual lead pellets! However, Disney realized after a while that it wasn't exactly the safest attraction around which resulted in a refurbishment. In 1982 the attraction reopened as it's seen today, with red infra-red lights that react when you shoot them.

Fun Facts: The attraction actually has a total of 97 targets, so if you want to see what each light's result is, you'll need to fork over $3!

Location: Frontierland.

Touring Tips: Every gun begins with a free round first thing in the morning! Even if your first destination is Big Thunder or Splash Mountain, stop by first thing to save yourself a dollar or two!
