I was pleasantly surprised about this show. It was way better than I expected. It is a small venue but nonetheless it’s very entertaining. The magician is very funny too. The illusions and magic tricks will leave you thinking “how he do that?!!” Very worthwhile!!!

My husband and I visited Lake Geneva for our anniversary and decided to visit the Magic show and we absolutely loved it. It’s a small theater which makes it more up front and personal.. The whole staff was wonderful...

My first magic show. Up close and personal. Excellent show. Very entertaining with a lot of interaction with audience. Such a nice, comical trickster. Me and my husband enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend!

Pleasantly surprised. Overall an entertaining show. Some tricks were more thinkers that smaller children may not fully appreciate. Worth the money to go see the show in such an intimate setting.

Had a fantastic time. No bad seats in the house. Top-rate magic tricks in a cozy setting--everyone close to the stage.

The magic is designed to fool adults but kids definitely enjoy it too! The performance runs one hour so if your child can sit for that long they should be fine!
