Saw the show 4 years ago & it was amazing… so thought we’d attend again & OMG it was a $10 yuk-yuk show with amateur comedians & no magic but a few card tricks you couldn’t see from the balconies, parents were packing up after intermission & taking their bored children home. Everyone should be reimbursed for having to pay good money for this ridiculousness!! Terribly disappointed as we waited since 2018 to finally get to see the show due to covid & man it was absolutely terrible! Don’t waste your money!

1.0 star rating CJ Walker from Vancouver, British Columbia


Very disappointed. No illusions. Mostly just cheesy card tricks. Completely not what we paid for.

1.0 star rating Laura from Vancouver, British Columbia


This was the worst show I've ever been to before....and yes I've been to magic shows before. We bought 6 tickets, 2 left 30 minutes in and the rest of us left at intermission. There wasn't much magic and everything felt like they were buying or filling time. Half the time you didn't even know what they were talking about anymore. I get it, were all grown adults and maybe it's just us.....but when the 7 year old infront of us loses interest aswell, then you know something is wrong. Would or will not go back again

Very amateur, trivial performances. Street artists at Vancouver Robson Square are much more entertaining. Left during the intermission.

1.0 star rating Jay from Vancouver, British Columbia


I don’t know what the hell was going on up there. It’s a kids show, and nothing worth seeing at all if you are looking to appreciate decent magic. The magicians all seemed nice enough, and could probably do some great things walking around, but no really quality tricks were included in the show. Knowing what I know, I wouldn’t go if it was free.

1.0 star rating C. Anderson from Vancouver, British Columbia


Absolute disappointment. Took the family and there were no illusions. Just card tricks that no one could see if you were sitting in anything past row 5. No screens to enlarge and view card tricks. The ads were totally misleading as they showed floating girls etc. We watched people leave at intermission but stayed hoping it would get better. It did not. We would not recommend nor ever go again. Too expensive for the lame show.

1.0 star rating Scott Garpiel from Atlantic City, New Jersey


Absolutely a waste of time. Not worth fifty cents. No illusions and a lot of talking in between substandard magic. It is a joke. I thought the first two acts were supposed to get you warmed up for the headlining acts. They were the headlining acts. Completely disgusted with the whole endeavor. Don’t go….you can spend your money on a root canal and get more enjoyment!
