The shootout wasn't what I expected. I guess I wanted something more serious like a shootout from an old Western movie but this was just cheesy and boring. Even my 11-year-old was bored.

Guess if you come west you expect something like this. Once you have seen this you don't need to see it again. It caters to those folks that have read too many cowboy books and magazines.

Old west fun. Seemed spontaneous. Fun to see the cowboys shootout. Was not expecting it, so that made it all the more enjoyable.

Aug. '14 The old Stage coach robbery in the town of Jackson has been replaced by a "shoot-out" confrontation off of the town square. Cast is from The Jackson Hole Playhouse. It is about 10 mins. and it is FREE. Entertaining for the kids especially. Go early to get close parking. MON-SAT @ 6pm

Saw it in 1999 and this August. Actors/Actresses are real personable and do a good job interacting with the crowd before hand. Whole skit is maybe around 10 minutes. You will see all ages in the crowd. Good chance to take a picture or two and support the local (arts) theatre.

Its pretty cool I guess, its unique and quaint. It is as cheesy as could be, and a little lame. But it is entertaining for children. Best experience with it is when my brother who is in the army was driving through town as the shootout began. And he freaked out at the sound of gun shots.

Haven't been here for 20 years. The shoot out has changed to be more theatrical. The actors say they are from NYC. As the guy from the Pace picante commercial says "NEW YORK CITY?" It is quite obvious that they don't have a Western bone in their bodies. It woild be great for kids but I wouldn't walk over there... More

Went along on our last night in town. Please with our place to watch, just outside the ice cream place on the corner. Very loud and well acted out. Would have been improved by a few stunts and some older more realistic actors...one did bear a striking resemblance to Harry potter, not quite cowboy material. But kids enjoyed it, it... More

Everyday at 6PM on the town square is a Western shootout re-enactment. It lasts ~15 min. It is free but they pass the hat afterward requesting donations. This is also some marketing for their local playhouse. The shoot-out is pretty cheesy and best geared to <12 years of age. If you are there when it starts, stick around and watch.... More

I wouldn't rearrange a trip schedule to fit this attraction in, but if you are in the area it is a fun thing to see. The evening we saw this, the sound system failed numerous times during the show so we didn't hear everything during the performance.
