This was an excellent experience. Not only was the performance excellent but the service was awesome as well. The actors and dialogue were good and at times humorous. What really impressed me was how the workers were so helpful. I was with someone in a wheelchair when I was there. They picked her up on a golf cart and carried... More

Kids had a great time at Horn In The West. Even though we had a downpour right before show time, the clouds parted and the staff dried off the seats for everyone. It was a great summer evening experience in Boone.

This is a great play about the area, it history and settlers. The action & audio were excellent. Seating was better than expected. Bring a seat cushion & a lite blanket for your legs, it gets cool after sundown.

This is a wonderfully done outdoor theater show about how Boone, NC was settled. It has characters you can follow with some historical facts. I greatly enjoyed the dance scenes. The fire-dance is by far worth coming to see.

I actually went to this several year ago with my Girl Scout Troop. The show was Great! I hope everyone takes the time to go see this awesome outdoor drama. Daniel Boone was my favorite. Meeting the cast afterwards made it all worth while! Great for Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts!

It was very entertaining and educational. The actors were excellent in portraying the story. We were afraid that the evening might have rain, but we only... More

Have seen the show for many years. It's a good outdoor drama and gives some good entertaining background on the town of Boone. It only runs a short time in the summers, but worth to go to.
