Fantastic show, brought children from the audiance up on the stage. Small theater with a personal feel. Museum worth the extra $5.00.

We went to the Theater of Magic on Central Ave in Hot Springs, Ark and enjoyed it very much. Admission for Seniors was just Sixteen Dollars each and it was very amusing. The show lasted about two hours and was filled with Magic Tricks and slight of hand. The principle showman was Maxwell Blade and another slight of hand artist... More

The building is kind of old and yukky, but the entertainment was very good. I wouldn't go back for a second visit, but it was fun seeing it once.

Its $18 a person for the buffet - was it worth it? No... The buffet wasn't bad, but its not worth $18. I would go somewhere else for dinner and come for the show. The show was quite fun. My wife and I enjoyed it. There is not much to do in Hot Springs, so my rating for the show... More

I suppose if you never have been out of Hot Springs it would be an OK show but to anyone else not so much...Boring, hokey and dull are the best description I can give

I just spent 3 nights in Hot Springs this weekend, and this was easily the highlight of my trip. Extremely entertaining. Funny. Small theatre - makes the experience more personal I think. We got there an hour early to wait in line and got front row seats. Maxwell Blade involves the audience. Loved it when he brought kids up on... More

The magic was so-so, but Maxwell Blade was really funny. There was lots of audience participation and he did a great job of getting the kids in the audience involved in the show. (Bohemian Rhapsody was hilarious!) There were definitely some sales pitches and a brief "testimony" at the end of the show, but nothing off-putting. We'd go back again.
