After 2 days of beaches, loud music, and sketchy ping pong shows, admittedly we were running out of ideas for a fun, sin-free night out. Illusion Hall was unplanned, we kinda walked pass it on the way to Tiffany show the day before and was curious, so it ended up in our schedule.

Ticket is not expensive, you can bargain for 500baht / person at ticket 'agency' stalls along main streets. At least that was what we did, although we'd rather not having done so, will explain later.

Venue was easy to find, 5-10 mins walk along Pattayasaisong Rd from Tiffany, Alcazar, Art in Paradise. If lost, ask locals for "Tuxedo" in your best Thai-English accent, they will point you the right way.

The theatre exterior/ground was pleasant, no Chinese tourists, no fat drunk sexpats. Show starts on time, you get a free cup of popcorn, water was 20baht. The pathway to go inside featured a small ghost house. Nothing scary, just dim light and visual illusions to get you in the mood.

Auditorium reminded me of Phantom of the Opera, it was huge, and empty!!! Apart from me and my partner, there was another group of three Indian dudes, that was it! Frankly, the 5 of us took up half of very few unbroken seats in the audience. The experience was really strange, in a good way. Didn't think we would find an entertainment venue quite literally just for ourselves in this hectic city. My partner, being the eccentric oddball he's always been, was beyond thrilled.

The main illusionist's tricks were average, nothing you haven't seen to be honest. It went smoothly without any cringe-worthy mistakes though. Highlight of the night has to be the clown. He's a cute young guy, great comedian. His part is mostly audience participation. I was picked to go on stage and my partner had the laugh of his life. Later on one Indian dude was also picked, hilarious! If you have small children I think would be very amusing. The whole thing runs for 1 hour.

Overall, a refreshing experience from the usual craze of Pattaya. Although enjoyable to me, I can't help but realise Illusion Hall might be at its sunset already. Me and my partner both have a soft spot for resilient artists who perform even just for an audience of 5, if chosen again we would buy tickets at the door at full price 750baht, to support them. We would recommend and visit again ourselves given the chance.

Go check it out yourself!

We booked VIP seats in the first lane to enjoy the magic show....
Kids had fun enjoying the funny acts of assistant magician...I pthink they should reorganize their hall seats and keep a gap between the stage and the first VIP lane as being on this lane all the tricks were visible for kids....
Even my son was yelling that the rope was visible in magician's sleeves...
Anyhow Kids enjoyed the show...

Seriously under performed can see multiple mistakes. He really needs some help from a professional to tighten up his performance.
