Rodeos are one of the few fads from the Wild West to continue in modern times, unlike robbing trains or tumbleweed tattoos. Enjoy anachronistic amusement with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get two C-stand rodeo tickets (a $32 value), Old West Museum admission for two (a $14 value), and one park-'n'-ride voucher (a $10 value) at Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming (a $56 total value). Today's Groupon is valid for single-day admission on July 25, 26, 27, or 28.
Cheyenne Frontier Days revives the rough-and-tumble pastimes of the Old West with a summer exhibition complete with outdoor rodeo, interactive reenactments, and a historical museum. Sidle up to the rodeo, where you can ogle from C-stand seats as wranglers defy gravity while maintaining their balance on bucking broncos and hovering horseshoes. From 12:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, spectators can catch 10 rodeo events and three track acts that feature more than 40 bulls, 70 broncos, and a trio of trick riders. Daring bull jockeys will attempt to ride a 2,000-pound bull for at least eight seconds, with the good riders successfully holding on and the great riders composing a rhyming haiku to recite on dismount.
The Old West Museum displays a collection of artifacts portraying pioneer life and history, including 150 carriages and wagons originally used to transport kittens cross-country. Frontier Days visitors can seek breaks between events by wandering through saloons and square dancing in the Old West town, Wild Horse Gulch, or befriending off-duty bulls with a round of pin-the-tail-on-the-cowboy. Attendees can hitch their vehicles up in the park-'n'-ride lot and take a complimentary shuttle to the main rodeo grounds.
