Mosey on into the Wild West for a taste of authentic American adventure in Dry Rock Gulch. Yeeh-haw, cowboy!— Promotional quote

Dry Rock Gulch is a location in the Nuka-World Amusement Park in 2287.


Dry Rock Gulch was the first Nuka-World park expansion, launched in 2058.[1][2] Inspired by John-Caleb Bradberton's own love of the Old West when he was child, the park was designed to emulate the feeling of the American Frontier,[1] working on the popular image of the West as an untamed frontier, full of helpful people. The park was also constructed in part as a celebration of Nuka-Cola Wild, Nuka-Cola's own root-beer variant.[3]

When the Great War struck, most visitors died where they were; the radiation cooked them performing their last acts, and the concussive force of the blasts toppled the rollercoaster. For over two hundred years, it remained almost untouched by time. However, with the raiders' successful seizure of the trader settlement of Nuka-Town USA, a surviving group of traders fled into this park. With the raiders hot on their tail, they unknowingly barricaded themselves within the bloodworm nest within Mad Mulligan's Mine, and quickly succumbed to the bloodworms.[4] Since then, the gulch has become a breeding ground of bloodworms, with the local authorities deeming it to be an infestation of deadly worms.[5]


The tower near the mountain coaster is accessible with a power armor jetpack and has a Nuka-Cola Wild and a mini nuke, along with two ammo cases. It's possible to hop over the mountains to the employee area which is filled with frag mines and feral ghouls. It is also possible to get up on top of the above-ground part of Mad Mulligan's Minecart Coaster to find additional loot, including a toy sloth hanging onto an overgrown vine on the upper part of the coaster.


Notable loot


Dry Rock Gulch appears only in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.
