Ok, now, I do remember the parts with Clint Eastwood and John Wayne, thx for the reminder, lol! Now is there more of a show there? I'm having such a mind blank, lol, but I do remember then mentioning Eastwood and Wayne, I don't remember anything else! Who knew I was missing something?!

If you typically experience the shootout in the gangster scene (where the gangster "takes over" the ride vehicle), then you just drive quickly through the western scene immediately after.

However, at the same time the gangster shootout is going on, there is a parallel one happening in the western scene (instead with a bandit taking over the ride vehicle). Guests in the first train of two cars see the western shootout (complete with fire effects), while guests in the second train see the gangster shootout.

You are quick, mesaboy2! Thank you! Well, I must have seen the bandit scene at some time during all the times we've been there, your description sounds a bit familiar for sure, but it's definitely been a long time. Thanks! Now I'm hoping next visit we get the western scene! I've gotta ask my daughter, too, maybe she remembers it better than I do.

If it's running, you can certainly ask for it. You'll want to board the front train, on the right as you enter the boarding area.

Oh, ok, cool! I gotta put this in my bits of notes/info I gather over the year, lol, so I remember! Interesting, too, I don't recall going up to the front car at all - as far as I can remember, I get in the first car of the second set of cars, never up close to that colorful marquis. So, got a mission next vacay, thanks for the tips!

There isn't room for both ride vehicles in either the western or gangster scene. The first ride vehicle, itself comprised of two large cars, always stops in the western scene while its twin behind it stops in the gangster scene. When capacity is not an issue, it's not unusual for only the gangster scene to be running--apparently it's cheaper than the western scene due to the fire effects.

I'm pretty sure the PP was referring to the front/back car of the Gangster vehicle (as each vehicle has 2 cars).
