Deadwood Stagecoach Rides

Deadwood Stagecoach Rides

One of the most recognizable and historic Old West icons in existence is the famous Deadwood Stagecoach. 

Deadwood Alive continues the legacy and romanticism of the Deadwood Stagecoach still notorious throughout the globe today. The stagecoach was the primary mode of travel in areas that had little or no rail transportation. This is essentially true for Deadwood - the stagecoach was used extensively to carry mail, gold and people from 1876 until the arrival of the railroad in December 1890.

You can experience the same mode of transportation used during the Black Hills Gold Rush which brought men and women of all types and characters into the gulch while traveling up and down Historic Main Street. Riders need not fear being filled with buckshot but we encourage you to stay aware of desperadoes and bandits who may search the coach for gold and treasures. 

For Deadwood Stagecoach ride information, stop by Outlaw Square.


$15 Adults, $10 Children (ages 6-12), $5 Children (ages 3-5). Children 2 and under are free. Seating is limited.
