A Visit to Oasys Mini Hollywood in Almeria

Published on 30/03/2009 in Holidays in Spain

Because of its dry desert baron environment which resembles Western area of Texas, the area of Almeria, especially the desert area around Tabarnas is well known as the location for the filming of the spaghetti westerns including a Fistful of Dollars, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, A Few Dollars More and The Man with No Name.

For the dedicated movie fans Western Hollywood and Western Leone are the actual film studios where they made the movies and their facilities combine the actual sets with a Wild West show. Oasys Mini Hollywood is a specially created theme park that combines a Wild West setting, western shows with gunfighters and Cancan dancers, with a Zoo, botanical gardens and a swimming pool.

The highlight is watching the western show, where the bad guys rob the bank and you´ll see a jailbreak, stunt riding and the final showdown gunfight, which the children loved. Straight after the working saloon is the location for the popular Cancan show.

As you wonder around you´ll find reproductions of Western shops, a carriage museum, a cinema museum, dress up western style for a photograph or meet the cowboys and take a ride in the stagecoach. If you´re hungry there are plenty of places to eat.

But it´s not just about the Western show as the park is set in stunning surroundings with waterfalls, stunning views and lots of places for picnics with children’s play areas. The park is not ideal for the less mobile as there are lots of hills, stairs and uneven surfaces.

Include with the entrance ticket a Mini-Train trip runs from Bear Square around the animal enclosures and don´t forget your swimming gear as there is a large pool which opens peak season. 
 
Entry to Oasis Mini Hollywood is €19 for adults and €9 for children plus €2.50 for car parking. The park only opens weekends off season till 31st May with the Wild West Shows at 12:00 and 17:00 and Cancan shows at 13:00 and 16:00. The pool opens from 1st June-September 31st and there are additional shows at 20:00 for Western and 19:00 for Cancan 

Getting there, the theme parks are a 2.5 hours drive away from Torrevieja in Tabernas, just off junction 376 on the A-92 motorway. There are lots of well priced hotels around if you fancy a weekend break, perhaps staying in Mojacar or Almeria
