Very disappointed with what pretty juvenile humor, average “magic” and a very hard sell of trashy plastic magic tricks after the show. No one on our party (ages 6 to 73) really enjoyed it.

Amazing show. Really funny. The kids loved it. Made me want a Ring Master in my life to announce my entrance to a room. Loved it

My 8 year old niece had a blast. The tricks were a little lightweight, but the charisma coming from the stage more than carried it. Far funnier than expected. Hour well spent.

A very poor show. Far too much talking and repetition and far too few tricks. Does not live up to the marketing blurb, cannot understand what award anyone would give it and yet poster and fliers say award winning!! Was the magic reduced because it was a sensory show which the ring master went to great lengths to tell the audience and yet it was not made clear on the booking? Too many fillers, playing for time. Content is too base with several toilet references and underpants section was particularly long and not good enough.
I had treated my 8 and 10 year old and their Mum and all felt very disappointed. this is not family entertainment. Outrageously overpriced, and then ringmaster promoted photos to be taken with cast after the show with a goody bag for which more payment is expected!

I was disappointed in the show. It was sensory friendly to cater for children with additional support needs which is great but that wasn't explained when I bought the tickets. I felt there was too much talking and not enough magic tricks. My grandson aged 7 wanted to leave before the end as he said he was bored.

Excellent show enjoyed by our family of 5 and 7 year olds. Thoroughly entertaining and engaging. Best kids show we’ve seen in a very long time

A really high-energy, fun performance, although they sell magic-trick-filled party bags outside the venue and the performers really pushed these right at the end of the show.

Filled with audience interaction and constant non-stop laughter the trio are ferocious in never missing a moment to either make us laugh or surprise us with some fun magic. Magic coins, a shoe machine, undies, giant wands, you get the picture.
