Sioux City, which was originally built in 1969 for $2 million, has been a popular theme park for both locals and tourists for many years. Don Alejandro del Castillo, who owned the land, made a deal with 20th Century Fox who used American designers to plan the area. Two years later, Sioux City Gran Canaria opened its doors as a Wild West theme park.
Four years on, the park was used as the location to film “Take a High Ride”, a great Western film. Celebrities such as James Brown and Gloria Gaynor have sung at Sioux City and it is often used for themed parties and weddings.
Sioux City is open every day except Monday from 10am until 5pm. There is a special BBQ night on Fridays. Sioux City is ten minutes from Playa del Inglés in Cañon del Aguila, San Agustín, and you can see a Wild West village, dancing and sketches such as saloon fights and bank robberies. You can try horse riding and there is a restaurant and bar. There is also a reptile zoo there!
