Dry Rock Gulch was built as a celebration of Nuka-Cola Wild, the root-beer flavored beverage. Visitors could take a step back in time and have an immersive experience filled with the sights, sounds and smells of the Old West.

Dry Rock Gulch is a park of Nuka-World.

Background[edit | edit source]

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 take on the classic root-based beverage.[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 later, it remained almost untouched by time. However with the raiders' successful seizure of the trader settlement of Nuka-Town USA, a group 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 monsters inside. Now the park lays bare, a breeding ground of bloodworms.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The Gulch is an enclosed, confined park. Attractions can be found linearly, starting with the Theater, Doc Phosphate's Saloon in the middle, and terminating at Mad Mulligan's Minecart Coaster. The area is, of course, infested with bloodworms. The creepy crawlies are enough to send a chill up the collective spine of the visitor, right after they bite into the ankles and start tearing off meat.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A toy rocketship is sitting on top of the earthen spire in the northwestern part of the park. It can be accessed by following the tracks to the top and then jumping onto the spire.
  • There is a mini Nuke, a Nuka-Cola Wild, two ammo boxes and a male skeleton on top of the oil derrick near the roller coast tracks and the earthen spire described before. The derrick can only be accessed by using a power armor jet pack after jumping from the rocky spire.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

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