Parenting Information - Hide Section
  • Height Restriction: None, though a child will need to be at least 36" to make use of the lower guns without being picked up. Children are not allowed to stand on the railing.
  • Child Swap: No
  • Other Issues: There is nothing in the targets that is likely to bother any children. That said, these guns are more realistic than most of the toy guns they may have used previously. It is always a good idea to reinforce certain rules about guns, even in play situations (that they should never be pointed at people, for example).
History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: Though it didn't open until 1957, this was the first significant use of the space.
  • This Attraction's history: Initially the guns actually shot metal pellets at metal targets, but this was soon changed when the level of maintenance this implied was realized. In 1985 the scene inside the gallery was updated and new light guns were installed. At that time the name was changed to Frontierland Shootin' Exposition from simply Shooting Gallery.
  • Other Trivia:
    • Competition: Though they are long gone, both Main Street and Adventureland have had their own shooting galleries in the pas. Main Street had one from 1955 to 1962 and Adventureland had one, under several names from 1962 to 1982.
