It’s been a few weeks since I became Eagle Eye Erin and joined my fellow misunderstood Rainbow Ridgers for “Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!” at Disneyland park. And before this unique experience ends its test run on September 1, there are a few lessons I’d like to pass on.

1. Stay out of jail.

Stay Out of Jail at ‘Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!’

This one may seem obvious to some of you Frontierland folk. But for us here in Rainbow Ridge, a little jail time is a badge of honor. Even so, being stuck behind bars while your rivals snatch up precious land is a frustrating experience. Perfect your draw and stay out!

2. Don’t be afraid of a little liquid luck.


L.B. sells some pretty potent stuff from that cart of his … I recommend giving Charm, Luck and Knowledge a try. You’d be surprised what they can do.

3. Know your way around town.


No matter which side you choose, “Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!” is all about helping your neighbor. So when the Sheriff asks you to find someone at the Hideout, or you get a telegram telling you to spread a message at the Golden Horseshoe, you best know where you’re going!

4. Everyone needs a place to call home.

There’s nothing like the feeling of owning your own plot of land – you choose it and name it, and it’s yours. At least for the rest of the day.

5. Life is about more than bits.

Do I have my own little treasure trove of bits? Sure. But if “Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!” has taught me anything, it’s that your friends and neighbors are the true riches.


  • WIsh this wasnt leavin… 🙁

  • Lesson 6. Don’t trust L.B. Buy the tonics on your own choice and not his smooth talking reasonings.
    (I’m still waiting on that gold nugget…)

  • Eagle Eye,

    Regardless of the clan with which you align yourself, a great truth is still a great truth. When you mention “your friends and neighbors are the true riches,” I heartily agree.

    I rediscovered that fact while recently in the open frontier of San Diego. New friendships were made and old times remembered.

    So I’ll tip my hat to ya, Rainbow Ridger.

    Looks like we both took a sip from L.B.’s cup of knowledge.
