Sioux City Gran Canaria

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.
