You need to see the show of the gunfighters while on Allen street. These guys did a good job-gave lots of information, which afterward we found around Tombstone, so listen closely. If loud noises scare you, not recommened-even tho its pretend its loud

Bang--Bang authentic info and recreation of the events that often lead to live gun fights and killings in Tombstone's history are reenacted here several times daily. Along with the roles of the actors, there is a clarifying explanation of the historical realities of a growing, relatively lawless town in the Wild West. This was both entertaining and enlightening. A good... More

We enjoyed this "show". They do actually act out gunfights, more likely to have happened back in the day in a saloon! Very loud, but the history and stories were outstanding!

With my wife son and his wife we came down to Tombstone for the day. We really had a great time while we were there. Lots of fun things going on. This is really a neat little area. Fun trip!

So entertaining. The host (from Minnesota) is a great storyteller and the actors were convincing. The stories were an interesting glimpse into the lesser known gunfights of Tombstone. I enjoyed this more than the O.K. Corral.

There was more history as part of the "show" than I expected and a good demonstration of the power of "blanks". The re-enactments are really SNL quality, but they're still entertaining. I guess it doesn't hurt to part with $8/person for something like this.

What a great little show about 45 minutes price was totally fair $20 for three of us. Actors were great super friendly make sure to bring a little cash to tip them at the end as they work for tips they took the time to explain before the show to the children that it is very loud as they use...

Loved the show short and great! It was affordable to watch and very affordable for the length of the show. It was funny, historical and made us feel like we were in the 1880s.
