The hidden stage

The backdrop of this kiosk looks like the front of an old shack. This backdrop was originally part of a small stage location when Outlaw Gulch first opened. (Details needed on what type of show was there; I did see a cowboy character standing on it once with some kind of pump thing that sprayed water, but I never was around to see what his show was.) When construction began for this food stand, the stage was removed and a new floor and roof was constructed.



  • Sign: The menu sign says Chuckwagon Soda, but the wagon itself reads Outlaw Gulch Chuck Wagon Old Fashioned Soda.
  • Guide Map: Not listed specifically; just part of Outlaw Gulch Foods.
  • In-Park Map Signs: CHUCK WAGON (two words)
  • Website: Outlaw Gulch Old Time Soda Wagon

Well, whatever they call it, the soda sure is good. Chuckwagon as one word is not in my spell checker, though, so that seems to be wrong.
