After two years, the town of Calico will once again come to life with the return of the award-winning, interactive Ghost Town Alive! with new adventures, roles, and characters.

In this immersive version of the Old West, the citizens of Calico invite park guests to join a new action-packed storyline through the streets of Ghost Town, where each guest has the power to unlock secret missions with characters, influence the day’s events, and take on mind-challenging puzzles. Ghost Town Alive! will take place on select days from May 20 to Sept. 5, 2022.
