“A must-see! A wonderful magic show is performed by nationally known magicians such as Dorothy Dietrich and Bravo the Great. Lots of laughs, live animals, and audience participation. The Halloween Spook-tacular Theater of Illusion takes place from Columbus Day through Halloween. Appropriate for all ages, this magic show features classic illusions with nothing too scary for little ones.”

    My family and I were very impressed with the quality of the show. We felt like we were at a Las Vegas performance. The performers were very proficient. I am still trying to figure out how the magic was done. Amazing and very family oriented! A 10 on a scale of 10.
