Nightly May 24th - September 29th

“Legends in Light” the Crazy Horse Memorial® multimedia laser-light show is presented nightly, at dark, from Memorial Day weekend through September 29th. The laser-light show effectively turns the mountainside into a giant 500-foot “screen” for the spectacular display.

“This is laser-light storytelling to illuminate our cultural diversity, celebrate our similarities and encourage better understanding and harmony among races and nations,” said Ruth Ziolkowski,(1926-2014) wife of late sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski (1908-1982).

The Memorial honors Native Americans, and “Legends in Light” dramatizes the story of the rich heritage, living cultures and contributions by Native Americans to our society. The show features colorful animations, sound effects and laser beams choreographed to music

The Laser Light Show is produced with:

  • 15-watt lasers that are the biggest used in the laser-show industry
  • 8,800 watts of stereo sound that is heard in the parking lots and throughout the visitor complex
  • 25 2,000 watt fixtures lighting up the mountain
  • Three of the world's largest slide projectors

The three PANI slide projectors create panoramic images as wide as the mountain carving. A closed-loop ice-making system cools the lasers, without drawing on water resources.

This dynamic method of storytelling provides a unique experience for our guests to enjoy.
