The Ranch is open May 26th – 29th, then June 1st through Labor Day 6 nights a week (Monday – Saturday) and Saturdays through mid – October.
A typical evening at the Flying J Ranch begins with making reservations. Reservations are requested, but not required. Walkins are welcome, however to help them with the food count they ask that you please call in and make reservations or purchase your tickets online on their website. Once you have reservations, show up at the ranch to pick-up your tickets on the evening of your reservations.
The gates open at 5:30 pm and that is when the ticket booth and all activities open or begin. Seating assignments are given when you pick up your tickets and you are seated front to back as you arrive.
Bonita City is their old west town and offers gift shops filled with eclectic items, clothing, gifts for children to gifts for a special person or a loved one. There is something for everyone at the shops at the Flying J. Cindy’s Sweet Shop is open and serving soft drinks, cider, coffee, snacks, candy and hand dipped ice cream! There is a pistol shoot where you can try your luck with a real .45 caliber pistol, pony rides for kids, gold panning, a blacksmith shop and a chapel.
Right before dinner a gunfight will break out in the center of Bonita City! It is performed by the Wranglers and is a hit with tourists from all over. Directly after the gunfight you will go in and be seated in the dining hall. One of the Wranglers will come out and tell you how they serve the meal. It is impressive! They can feed over 600 people in 20 minutes! After everyone has finished their meal and has made a trip to the ice cream shop they start the show! The show is an action packed show filled with World Champion yodeling, amazing harmonies, fancy fiddling, hilarious comedy, banjo playing and guitar picking! The show at the Flying J Ranch is simply fantastic!
