“Dinner and a show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We booked this through the KBH. Great service with meal and drinks. A lovely 3 course meal while you watch the magic show. It was a show for kids and adults alike, Great interaction with the magicians and audience. Plenty of laughs. Great value for you money.

“Worthwhile show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Our concierge rec this show..we opted to pay an extra $9 for front row. Seats and we were glad we did..also had to choose the meal on booking...arrived 25 mins early parked in garage and theatre validated ticket....the show began in the lobby 15mins before seating...with a magician...ushered into the show....2 pics taken(more later about that)offered the choice of 5,drinks and then seated. Main Stage plus 2. Smaller stages..we sat right in front of the main stage...between the three courses meal..you have to eat fast they clear away immediately...water and coffee on the table.....hula dances performed..magician "Holden" also came to each table in turn for tricks..he was really good..more dancers..then the main act "Jody and Kathleen"came on stage...magic through the ages..all performed in Maui...fantastic performance and good interaction with the crowd and children...first class entertainment and good value for money..after the show all the performers were lined up to shake hands..a nice touch..then in the lobby the pictures...they were pricey..but very good. So we bought..$25 for 1/$30for two.. a great eve out...recommend..

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Great show! Not only was it a magic show, but it also had some hula. Great food service and open bar. We loved the close table magic that was performed.

“Great Magic Show & food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised with the entire show, production, and food at the Kupanaha Show. I didn't expect much from the food, but it was actually pretty good. We had steak and shrimp, and found it tender and flavorful. It also includes an open bar with mixed drinks and beer. After you eat, the magic show begins. The magic tricks are pretty big scale and will leave you trying to figure out what you just saw. They even throw in some Hula dancing for entertainment. Everything has a Hawaiian theme.

“Dinner and a magic show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

One thing to remember as you look through the various shows and activities in Maui is that some of them come with food. And some of them come with really good food.
Kupanaha is one of these.
And, while you are eating (and drinking, the waitstaff bring around Mai Tai's, Blue Hawaii's, a really tasty fruit juice, and other things), the "Close Magician" comes by the table and entertains with card tricks (note: never play cards with these people) and rings. Then, dinner finished, Jody takes over and leads you through an old-style magic show, complete with more card tricks, shredded paper, pretty girls, swords through boxes, "how did that get there?" disappearing and reappearing wristwatches, audience interaction, kids on stage, various puns, and sawing a woman (his wife, incidentally) in half. All of this is interspersed with an assortment of short hula shows by some young but talented performers.
