stopped in Cody for the night and had heard about the Gunfight which we thought would be great fun to watch so we were delighted to find that we arrived in town in time to watch it. Some of the actors had mics but most didn't so was very difficult to hear. The whole thing felt very thrown together as... More

Going to Cody in a couple of weeks and was looking forward to this. I wrote to ask a question and the reply given is that the gunfight is cancelled until further notice. Found out on Google, that this is due to an incident.

How can kids not like big loud bangs! It scared our 11 year old daughter but she still liked it. The outfits to me were more interesting if they are period authentic. More colorful than I thought they wore. And the shotgun at the end was LOUD! Set of a car alarm. Funny.

The acting is funny, if not super skilled. They act out a western bank robbing scene. Young kids might not enjoy the loud noises from the guns. Get there early if you want to buy a seat for the show. The front row ones sell out 30 or more minutes before the show. If you have kids who will want... More

This was a big miss for us. We wanted to like it and support the local community/charity, but it was just bad. It is a free show but, you can pay $2 for a seat. Super hard to hear the actors - there are a few big gun blasts. Would suggest spending you time doing something else. ☹️

My grandsons enjoyed the show, it was entertaining and fun. The characters stayed around to take pictures and sign autographs which made it even more fun.

Weak acting, long intro at the beginning before actually getting to the show. I would not waste my time or my $2 for a seat!

A month later I still can't believe how awful it was! The recommendation in Fodor's should be removed. Worst acting I've ever seen. At least the $2 we paid for seats went to a charity. That's what we were led to believe anyway. I'm not even sure it's historically accurate.

We planned our day around being back at the Irma to see the shootout at 6pm. Seats are $2 a piece and you can easily grab one 5 minutes before the show. The show starts with about 10 minutes of promotions for the sponsors. I understand it's free, so the sponsor promotion is necessary, but what are they sponsoring? The... More
