Getting your recommended daily dosage of cowboy has been a trying task ever since Hollywood stopped producing Westerns and your 10-gallon hat was ruined by that 10-gallon guacamole recipe. Go west with today's Groupon for membership to Frontier Texas!, located downtown on North First Street. Choose between the following membership options:
- For $40, you get a one-year family membership, good for all the members of a household, including grandparents (up to an $80 value).
- For $20, you get a one-year individual membership (up to a $40 value).
Frontier Texas! resurrects the excitement of the Old West in a state-of-the art, 14,000-square-foot facility spread over 6.4 acres. The center focuses on the century between 1780 and 1880, the height of the classic era of cowboys versus Indians and settlers versus nature, when men were men and the buffalo held the Old West firmly in the brutal grasp of an iron hoof. A series of exhibits and professionally acted holographic “spirit guides” explicate different aspects of the era, from the lifestyle of the native Comanche to the types of transportation used by the settlers, such as horses, stagecoaches, and astral projection. Visitors can kick back in a saloon, peruse the products of a general store, or contemplate the illusory nature of freedom from behind the bars of a replica jail.
Membership is available for individuals or families and includes unlimited access to the museum, a 10% discount on most items in the gift shop, and free or discounted admission to special events, such as Texas Independence Day or the traditional running of the prairie dogs, when brave crowds try to stay clear of adorable stampedes. Fly solo into the past, or bring a flock of small children to set their imagination ablaze and create old-timey memories that will last into tomorrow's ultrafuture.
