So yesterday I went to the 4th of July celebration, which by the way my kids had a blast. I had pre purchased the tickets online and live 1 hour away. No where online did it say we have to pay for parking and method of payment. I never carry cash. When we got there a older casusaion man said it was $5 which I was willinging to pay with a card. He said no that he needed cash which I had $4.11 in coins in the middle of my car. He said no that he needed the full $5 and told me to leave and go to a ATM. Keep in mind I have never been to Scottsdale before and knew where nothing was at. I asked him where I could go and he said google it. Then I drove up to turn around and asked the next guy who was nice and told me where I could go. Came back with cash of course and paid. Come to find out after meeting other families with their children some of the parents said that they didnt bring cash and were not asked to leave, that they got in for free. They were horrified when they heard my story. All of these families that got in for free were caucasion and my family is hispanic. So I feel like there was discrimation. I spent about $100 there last night and when I found out that I was told to leave and come back with .89 cents more and caucasion fanilies were not asked to do that...that really bothered me I came to have fun not to be judged. And if your staff is going to turn me away they need to turn away everyone who does not have cash. That was not fair at all. I will never come here again. And rarely leave reviews.... but this really bothered me and was the first time in my life I have ever felt discrimmated against.
This has been a place to come to when we need a place to sleep. When we moved to Arizona 3 1/2 yrs ago it was where we started. Now I am here again because we sold our RV and Im getting it ready for its trip back to Iowa. The staff is very nice and trusting. Not very many amenities but they do have some nice free showers if you dont want to use your RV shower. You are in one of many RV parking areas and you generally have some kind of view of the beautiful McDowell Mountain Preserve. Its only a little over $28 a night which is much better than a hotel anywhere here. On the east end of this facility they have horse shows almost every weekend from October to May so keep that in mind if youre traveling this way. You should still get a spot but check it out in advance. They also have an exhibit hall that gets used year round for different shows (currently having a RV show). It is located on the NE side of Scottsdale so if youre wanting to spend most of your time in Old Town you will have about a 25-30 min drive ahead of you. Enjoy and make the most of anywhere you stay.
Westworld is my favorite destination for the Arabian horse show and other horse shows I try to go every year its a tradition of mine definitely would recommend it if youre interested in that type of life or just want to walk the beautiful animals or know somebody that would enjoy it the tickets for a lot of their events are not expensive and definitely worth it a tip I could offer is to brings an extra cash because a lot of times theres a vendor or Saverios or shopping opportunities probably werent expecting outside of the ticket but you dont have to participate but youre going to want to just because its part of the overall atmosphere consider that one going to a carnival or Farmers Market but they dont consider it was so heads up on that desire in case you have it while youre there
From dog shows, to horse shows to car shows, this place is a fantastic venue. The City of Scottsdale takes great care of it. The polo field is always in excellent condition. The bathrooms all over the grounds are always stocked and clean. Ive also been to several events held at Monterra, a great location for your celebration. The view from the patio over the city is spectacular. The smell of the grass, the night sky...just beautiful.
Entrance fee was definitely overpriced. The exhibits were limited with way too many not being bike or rider related. I was disappointed not to see specialized bikes paintings or displays of artists work as Ive seen in other states. There was more variety of bikes in the parking lot then there were at the show.
Great place to go. Has Good Guys car show twice a year. If you have a "hot rod" go! Barrett Jackson auction which is a must. That can be super crowded. It has different horse shows. Arabian Horse Show is a great show. Plus it offers other types of events. Check the web site for info on whats going on.
I wanted to put my Cougar in the Good Guys show 2 yrs ago and they bood my car! Called thier hq and they apologized. Toda I called West World and asked for the Supervisor for Cust. Care and according to Austin they dont have one. Didnt know WW was living on a shoe-string budget!
Visited WestWorld for the Pet Expo this past weekend. Not only was the event fantastically organized, (indoors and outdoors as far as parking) but all staff members/volunteers were exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. Kudos to everyone involved, and the team from WestWorld,
This is a great multi-use venue. Like, GoodGuys car show, Arabian Horse Show, Barrett Jackson car auction, Parada del Sol rodeo, International Motorcycle show, International Sportsmen Expo just to name a few. Keep track of Westworlds web site to find out whats going on.
Great fairgrounds depending on the event you are there for. Barret Jackson makes this place almost elegant, AZ Bike week not so much. There is decent food in the buildings but the mobile vendors will offer a wider variety and possibly better tasting grub.
Im not sure what else they host/hold here, but we were killing time before a departing flight and found out there was a giant pet expo at WestWorld. The expo itself probably gets a 4 to 4 1/2 star. The location wasnt anything crazy-fancy or anything.
Consistently well organized. Plenty of staff to direct you. Plenty of parking. Lots of concessions choices. Grounds kept clean of trash. Bathrooms clean. I have been there multiple times over the years for the Shriners circus and the Arabian Show.
Visited the Barrett-Jackson auction with an accomplished event planner. The cars were cool, 5 star. There were no on staff greeters, no maps, no listings of any kind for the casual paying guest. It was a cool experience the execution was poor.
Here for the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction. Excellent venue, parking was relativley easy, shuttle service running regularly. Inside was clean, decent crowd management considering the amount of people in attendance, and overall good experience.
Went to see Arabian horse show I just wish there was more things for kids to do other than Pride ponies pet farm animals and the camel its very hard to keep a young child entertained over there way too much touchy-touchy stuff
An awesome place to go see Barrett Jackson in Arizona, we make a yearly pilgrimage in January for the last five years and its outstanding and so much fun all kinds of candy to look at with them eyes!
