    After getting dressed in their themed costumes, children will visit the desert town. The entertainer will tell children how such a town was organized, how people lived, and which the most important buildings and characters of Wild West were.
    From here, all children will go into the mountains on a gold rush.

  • The GOLD MINE

    Children will enter inside the mine to find gold. They will see gold nuggets on the mine walls . Together with the entertainer, they will place dynamite to extract the gold. After the dynamite is placed in position, the kids will come out and press the plunger of the detonator. The noise of a loud explosion will be heard from the mine and small rocks and gold nuggets will fall from the ceiling. Children will get back into the mine and to look for the gold nuggets. This mechanism is controlled by the entertainer using a remote control: a hatch hidden in the mine ceiling will open and rocks and gold mine ceiling will fall down. Children will gather all the gold, put it in a sack and place it inside the mine cart.

  • The horse race

    #

    Children will enter the horse race. The horses are actually pony-cycle toys that children can safely ride , offering a riding experience which is close to reality. While on horseback, children push the stirrups downwards and rise up off the saddle, then they sit on the saddle while bending their knees. These repeated movements will mechanically actuate the horse that will move forwards.
    The entertainer will organize races for every 5 children. At the end of the race all kids will be rewarded with sheriff badges.

  • Cowboy campfire

    Children will gather around the artificial fire, sitting on logs. The entertainer will tell children how the cowboys made camp. He will teach children a song and play the harmonica. The children can climb and explore the Wild West wagon. A horseshoe pitching game will be organised in the camp - the children will have to toss horseshoes at stakes in the ground.

  • The INDIANS

    Children will arrive into the Indian village where they will learn about Indians and their history. They can enter inside the tent and will learn how a teepee tent is build. Children will find a statue of an Indian standing in this village, with many elements missing. These elements are found scattered in small Indian village: Indian feathers, bow, arrows, tomahawks, clothing items. The entertainer will urge children to put all these elements together to reconstruct a true Indian. All children will dance around the fire and will chant specific Amerindian sounds.

    Children will fight the evil bandits. The entertainer will tell children about gangs, about the robberies, about the famous bandits Billy the Kid, Jesse James and Butch Cassidy, and about the duels they had with the sheriffs.
