Turn off your electronic devices and get ready to step back into the era of the cowboy, cattle drives, and Wild West towns. With its 1880’s atmosphere, Enchanted Springs Ranch is advertised by The History Channel as one The Top 10 Reasons to Visit San Antonio and Neighboring Regions and is recommended by Oprah as one of the Best Family Attractions in the U.S. Enchanted Springs Ranch, a western movie set and animal park, is a stellar 86-acre working longhorn ranch that thrills visitors from all over the world with its rugged, natural Hill Country beauty, collection of exotic animals, and authentic time warp.
It’s super cool – a Western town right out of the 1800’s – with real cowboys and cowgirls that will have you and your kids sitting up and taking notice! The town is a favorite filming location for movies, commercials and music videos. Tony Robbins, best-selling author and executive producer of the television series, Breakthrough with Tony Robbins said of the ranch: “Searching for the perfect ‘old west’ filming location for a new NBC series, we were lucky enough to find our way to Enchanted Springs.”
After you soak in the ambiance of the 1880’s with tour guides in period clothing - get ready for some entertainment! One of their main attractions is two-time World Champion pistol twirler, Pistol Packin’ Paula - a true cowgirl who puts on a gun-twirling, whip cracking, excitement-filled show that never fails to impress! Other attractions include the tractor-wagon ride through the animal park that features Texas Longhorns, buffalo, zebra, deer, and a wide variety of exotics; a fantastic puppet show called It’s a Cowboy’s Life; stunt shows and so much more!
If you’d like to combine entertainment with some authentic Texas barbeque, make reservations for a Wednesday or Friday night Summer Chuck Wagon Dinner & Show. You’ll savor every bite of the brisket and sausage dinner (with all the fixins - of course!) as you relax to the cowboy sounds of Texas Hill Country musicians. Take advantage of all the amenities of the ranch and then prepare to settle in for the second half of your evening which will be filled with laughter and amazement as the Wild West Show kicks off with real western entertainment. Don’t forget – reservations are required for all Chuck Wagon Dinner Shows as seating is limited.
The fun doesn’t stop there! You’ll also find a working Leather Shop where you can order customized leather goods and the Trading Post for souvenirs and snacks. Summer hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am through 5 pm for daily tours. Pack a picnic lunch and spend a full day at the ranch or spend an evening where your taste buds and your inner-cowboy will be satisfied.
Enchanted Springs Ranch is a favored location for private events (family reunions and weddings) and corporate events. Dr. Steve Schmidt’s (ranch owner) program for team building is available and has received much acclaim.
