This Rare Footage Of A Florida Amusement Park Will Have You Longing For The Good Old Days

Six Gun Territory was a 200-acre amusement park in Ocala made to look like a town from the Old West. It ran from 1963 to 1984, when the decline in Wild West fervor and the popularity of Disney World finally put Six Gun Territory out of business. In its heyday, though, it was a really cool place to spend a day with your family. Visitors would take a steam train ride to get into the town, where they could see gunfights, saloon shows, various rides, an Indian village, and more.

If you were one of the thousands of visitors that got to see Six Gun Territory before it closed its doors, this vintage home movie will take you right back:
