MacDonald's Ranch - Scottsdale: Authentic Stagecoach Ride for Two or Four at Macdonald Ranch (Up to 53% Off)

In the Old West, the horse-drawn stagecoach trumped the usual form of transportation: tethering a skateboard to a tumbleweed. Enjoy a 19th-century luxury with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for a stagecoach ride for two (up to a $90 value)
  • $85 for a stagecoach ride for four (up to a $180 value)

In a 45-minute ride, a team of draft horses pulls an authentic stagecoach that can carry up to 12 people through the 1,280-acre ranch, recreating the experience of the Old West as it passes by barrel cacti and saguaros, with the potential to see coyotes, hawks, and wild sheriffs patrolling the desert.

MacDonald's Ranch

There's something timeless about MacDonald's Ranch. Maybe it's that visitors can take a guided horseback ride through the desert, pose for an old-time photo, or ride a stagecoach—which in certain cases, might be held up by actors dressed as outlaws. But whatever the reason guests dock their zeppelin at MacDonald's Ranch, the staff hopes to treat them to a fun ranch experience. They surround them with music, cowboy shows, and seasonal attractions such as the annual pumpkin festival.

MacDonald's Ranch covers 1,300 acres of the scenic Sonoran Desert. Whether on horseback, train, or a hayride, guests can explore the area and view its desert flora, hawks, petrified spurs, and coyotes.

A great time even for the least experience. My family enjoyed it tremendously. The horses were gentle and the guides entertaining and engaging. Worth it. Great value.
