The dummy figures at the actual gunfight site are almost comical but the actual re-enactment of the gunfight proved to be very enjoyable and even hints that the Earps were not quite as pure as they have been portrayed. I feared it would be a tacky experience but was plaesantly surprised.

“Complete waste of time and money, really boring show”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The exhibits are ok, nothing spectacular. But the show was the probably the most boring show I have ever seen which is quite disappointing for a gun show. Some cheap humor, 40 minutes of boring dialogues then 30 seconds shooting and it is over. You can probably see the exhibits for free, but don't bother losing time to see the show.

“Line up early!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

For an attraction that conducts their show 3 times a day the organisation of getting people into the OK Corral was pretty disappointing. The show we attended was supposed to start at 2.00 however we were still all lined up outside the gates well past this starting time. The very close seating arrangements meant that my knees were touching the gentleman's back in front of me (and I am not a big person). The show was well scripted but probably a little long, people were mumbling behind us wondering when the action was going to start. Tickets to this event are cheap enough and include entry to a couple of other attractions so yeah, do it.

“History and Entertainment”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Missed the actual live show but walked through and looked at everything else. The area where the gunfight happened is set up with mannequins and a recorded narrative of the shoot-out. Very interesting and neat to see how this gunfight has captured interest that's lasted. The exhibit about the search and capture of Geronimo was also very interesting. Learned alot that day.

“A little hokey but a good way to learn a little history of Tombstone”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a guest from the UK and he loved it. Upon entry there is a courtyard where some mannequins are dressed as the participants of the Gunfight and while you are waiting for the doors to open into the "show" a tape is played telling the story - however with the large number of people and the poor quality of the sound it was hard to even hear it. The actors doing the re-enactment were not bad but if they had microphones it may have been better. It was very warm and the cover over the seating did not cover it all - two small children had to be carried out from overheating in the sun. However, the ten dollars paid included the museum, show, story told by Vincent Price in a movie like presentation, and a paper from the newspaper office. Not bad value.
