“Very Cool Show!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My daughters were not so interested in the history until they saw a show starting in the streets. They thought it was like the movie. We ended up staying in Tombstone longer just to see the show. It was good. We didn't know much about the history, but it was very entertaining.

“Must see in Tombstone. Tremendous amount of history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The show is great, but the real attraction is the history and information you can get just taking your time strolling through all the artifacts and displays. Well worth it...Teenagers and 8 year old were all entertained here as well.

“Gunfight at the OK Corral (Tombstone, AZ) is for my friends world-wide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

My friends from around the world have some peculiar impressions of Arizona. Some arrive here thinking that we ride around on horses armed with our 6-shooters, and we get into drunken bar brawls. Maybe not too far off. So after a trip to the University of Arizona to show off a high tech, sophisticated side of Tucson, we go on down to Tombstone, to see the shootout re-enactment at the OK Corral. All the stereotypes seem to come to life with an elegance and poetic flare that seems as though Edgar Allen Poe had heeded the call to Go West. An actor playing Doc Holliday has the image spot-on, as do some other actors playing the cowboys and other principal gunfighters of that tragic day just five generations ago. Doc Holliday then breaks into poetry that brings a classy touch to the rustic remembrance of the tragedy. And so I send my foreign visitors home, and they feel that they have seen the real Arizona!

“An enjoyable must do.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Another must do in Tombstone, after all this is the gunfight that really put Tombstone on the map. We had expected it to be a little over the top and hammy, so were prepared for this and enjoyed the show. The acting was good with the actors really seeming to believe themselves the characters. However, if they just shaved off a couple of the silly hammy bits early on in the show, the whole thing would have been ten minutes shorter with the emphasis on the main event and we would have been left with a far more positive memory. I'm being a little harsh though and appreciate that other people enjoy pantomime style antics.

“Great gunfight re enactment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you care anything about the American old west this stop is a must. Great re enactment on the original site where the gunfight at the ok corral happened. Well acted with special note to gentleman who played Doc Holliday... He was superb. They also have a histogram a that is very educational.
