“This is like an orientation stop”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

This is a must see because not only do you see how the doc was shot but they tell you how it was in the day and look like they were there when it happened.

“Good Cast and Good Variety”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This show had a Good cast and depicted 3 famous Tombstone Gunfights. The Admission was the Highest of the 3 we went to (OK, Helldarado). And was the 2nd best of the 3 IMO.

“Informative and fun show”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The show was well acted and fun to watch. The 3 short stories gave insight into gunfights and daily life around Tombstone. It was 30 min long and worth the $16 I paid for my two kids and me.

“Disappointing!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

It was once quite good, but now seeing sixty year old men play in a historic recreation of fights involving men in their early twenties to early thirties is sort of absurd. The owner, "Doc," is gruff and personality minus, as are his actors, though "Scotty" seems a nice guy and pretty good at his work. Historical enough story, but sort of absurd casting, as if Anthony Hopkins should star this year in a biography of Prince William!
