Oasys/Mini Hollywood information
Lonely Planet review
This is the best-known and most expensive of the Wild West shows and provides some good down-home family entertainment. Although the actual set is looking a bit scuffed, the zoo has grown to a considerable size with some 800 animals at last count, including lions, panthers, tigers and hippos.
There is also a couple of modest museums, with stagecoaches and similar, plus a pool and restaurant (think overpriced burgers and chips). Children should enjoy the, albeit brief, 20-minute daily shoot-out (resulting in an unceremonious hanging), while adults may prefer the clichéd can-can show (or at least the beer) in the saloon. While this is not Hollywood by any stretch of the imagination, it still offers a family-fun few hours out. It is located on the N340 just southwest of Tabernas. Take sunscreen and a hat: there is little shade.
