    This MUST DO is the REAL OK Corral show--don't be fooled by the imposters!
    These folks are just so classy and put on a great show. Unfortunately, we got scammed by the other shady show on the other side of town. Don't make that mistake! You cannot buy these tickets online (the other show has online sales and deceptive wording). Also, the other people post "actors" in town to try to steal business from the legit show by harassing people into going to the other show when they know everyone comes for this show. Anyways... these people were awesome and they put on a really fun show. When we told them what happened with the other place, they responded that it happens often, apologized (even though it was not their fault!) and even comp'd one of our tickets after the other place gave us attitude and the runaround about a refund (which we never got). Go inside with a little extra time to explore all the cool stuff they have, get yourself a popcorn and soda, and enjoy the show! It's great and the actors even take extra time to pose for lots of pics on the street before the show and in the performance area after. This is a MUST in Tombstone!
    A competing gunfight show called Old Tombstone continues to mislead visitors despite our complaints to the City of Tombstone and the Mayor. We're sorry for the confusion.

    Well worth the drive
    The museum is easy to find on Allen Street. One ticket (currently $10) grants you access to the reenactment of the infamous gunfight, admission to the museum itself (which includes a 25-minute presentation about Tombstone's history), and a copy of the Epitaph that covered the details of the gunfight. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any place I have ever been that offered as much value as this one museum ticket provided.

    Great Gunfight Show!
    These guys are wonderful actors who bring the experience of the shoot out at the OK Corral to life in a fun and engaging live show that really entertains. The historic displays and blacksmith were fun and informative as well. We really enjoyed this attraction.

    Well worth the time & money
    Excellent reenactment! The actors are terrific and made this a really fun attraction. The exhibits before the reenactment were very interesting and informative. We bought tickets that allowed us to tour the replica of the Epitaph newspaper too. That was fascinating.

    Great Depiction and Reenactment of the famous gun fight!
    This is a fun place to watch the reenactment of the famous gunfight. Very informative, funny, and well acted show. The cast is very talented and you can get pictures with them following the show for no extra cost. Audience participation is fun, If you can only go to one reenactment in Tombstone, this is the one!

    Best Reenactment in Tombstone
    The site of the OK Corral historic shoot out is reenacted in about a 30-minute show throughout the day. It is mainly a serious presentation. The cost is $10 (no discounts). You get access to viewing stand covered by a shade sail. Pictures can be taken during the presentation and afterwards with the actors. The grounds contain a few other historical artifacts. The statues of the real participants are posed outside for additional photo opportunities. There is a nice gift store with many reasonably priced souvenirs. This is a must do stop on your trip to Tombstone.

    Fun at the OK Corral
    Okay, you know this is going to be an entertaining show rather than a history lesson, and it was. About a half hour show, actors explained before hand a bit of the historical background and the show was on. The audience was encouraged to participate by booing the “bad” guys and cheering the “good” guys, and that all helped provide an enjoyable experience. It was fun. Admission also included admission to the OK Corral museum, and free historical newspapers at the newspaper museum. I think it was well worth the $10 admission price.

    Great show
    Really enjoyed the theatrical performance at the OK Corral. At around 25 minutes long it's the perfect length imo, and the actors were both very funny and very personable both before and after the show. It's got to be a grueling gig to do that same performance multiple times a day every day in the sun, but they really made it entertaining, especially by goading the audience and incorporating real world events (like staring down a helicopter passing overhead for example) into their patter. The story is simplified and maybe not altogether accurate, but seeing the show, the museum and real gunfight location are well worth the price of admission.

The actors were great, really great, and wanted to talk to answer questions after the show it was awesome that they made themselves available. The location, prop area and seating were all good. I don’t know his name but the Doc Holliday actor that led the show was great. My family with teens loved it. It’s cool caus u get more than the show with ur ticket cause you get to go check out the old printing press newspaper stuff down the road. Overall great experience. This and the mine tour are your best bang for the buck! Oh and eating at Big Nose Kate’s…that’s awesome too.

This place is full of history! I personally would say it is the #1 place to see in Tombstone, AZ. If you do not go anywhere else in Tombstone - you must go here. There is a giftshop and many items to see from the 1800s; saddles, stage coach, doctor items, photography. They have a blacksmith! A true real black smith making jewelry and things from metal, heat and a hammer. The reason it is such a great place to go would be that you are able to be in the same exact spot they the famous Gunfight took place and then see a reenactment of it!

The gunfight was fun and provides a little insight to why it happened. It was well organized. The actors seem to like their jobs and make the gunfight a fun experience.

Apparently downtown Tombstone is the home of four different gunfight reenactments ranging from historical to hysterical. We wanted to see something historically accurate, so we bought tickets to the 1:00 show at the OK Corral.

Get in line early to get a decent seat. Customers are packed like sardines into stadium-style benches, so you'll want an end seat or the front row. The 20-minute show doesn't start on time because people keep coming and coming, and everyone has to find a seat before the shooting begins.

This is considered an "audience participation" show, and you're instructed to cheer whenever the good guys enter the set and to boo whenever the bad guys appear. The actors are amateurs, and the performance is mechanical. When we visited, the show was short one outlaw. The gunshots are very loud, and several people had to get up and leave because their toddlers were terrified. We were bored ten minutes in.

After the show, photo ops with the actors are available at no charge. Tipping is encouraged. I found the historical outdoor museum on site to be more interesting than the live presentation. It houses unique items, like the 1860's era plantation saddle that Kurt Russell rode in the movie "Tombstone" and a bunkhouse bathtub used by cowboys for bathing in the 1880's.

Paying $10 is a stretch for this show but, since it also included admission to the historama theater presentation (next door) on "The Town Too Tough To Die" and a copy of the Epitaph Newspaper wherein the Ok Corral gunfight was originally reported, we almost got our money's worth.

The charge for the reenactment of the OK Corral gunfight was well worth it! The actors were excellent and even posed for pictures afterwards! So much history and backstories to appreciate!

Not worth the price. The OK Coral is a part of history and should be open to public with no fee. Tombstone is already a tourist trap and this just sums it up
