1) The parking is not behind the theatre as we were told by the lady who booked us at the counter in DFS. The parking is on the opposite side of the road next to the Slingshot.

2) If you want to go to watch the show then go to DFS everyday and play the free slot machine game. This prize for this game - which is won more often than not - is a voucher for various attractions around Guam. The voucher for The Sandcastle, which is possible to win, is a 'book one, get one free' kind of voucher. As there were 3 of us, we all got to go for the price of 2 tickets. As the show is quite expensive - $95 I believe - it is well worth making the trip to DFS and seeing if you can get this voucher.

3) There are usually 2 shows a night. One starts in the early evening, and another starting at 21:30. The one starting at 21:30 is without a meal, for which you would have to pay more for. If you just want to go and watch the show, and not eat, then the 21:30 show is probably the better option for you.

4) The show is pretty good - Las Vegas style, so I'm told! The young contortionists are amazing, and the magician is quite cool. The show lasts for about an hour and a half.

5) I wouldn't worry too much about getting a seat at the front - seats at the back are still quite close to the stage and the performers often come quite far out into the audience. In fact, I would recommend getting a seat at the middle of the back.

I've never been to a Vegas type show, so I don't have anything to compare this to. I loved the show, but at one hour long it seemed a bit short for the price. We paid for the casual plan without dinner. I think it was around $80 for tickets and included a free drink.

I would have liked more magic and acrobatic stuff. The dancing was so-so (the trampoline number went on way too long). The story for the show is two girls dreaming. When you say the story is a dream, I just assume that means "too lazy to think of a story" because you can do anything in a dream story and not worry about it making sense. But yeah, the magic and acrobatics were fantastic.

Also, their "No photography during the show" disclaimer isn't clear at all. I listened to it in English, and my wife listened to it in Korean, and we both took it to mean "No flash photography." But apparently it's no photography at all. Just say "No photography" - clean and simple. It is nice of them to allow photography before the show though so you can take pictures of the theater and stuff.

This is a fantastic must-see performance in Guam. It's one of the best shows in the world. You will see very stunning majic shows + elegant Las Vegas dancers + superb acrobats and beautiful white tigers on the stage which is very close to the audience. The place is great. The light & sound are wonderful. You will definitely enjoy this 1.5 hour "can't be missed" show. Though tickets seem rather expensive, it's absolutely worth spending. This is very highly recommended!

We had great expectations for this experience having been told am this was one of the best shows in Guam and having read all the positive reviews. However, either the show we saw was vastly different from what these people had seen or our expectations were too high.

The magic tricks were not that impressive, I would liken them to those magic shows I saw as a child in the 80s. I am unclear what the point of the poor tiger in the cage was. The dancers were mediocre at best, not sure why others have compared them to a Las Vagas show, and I felt their costumes and dancing at times were inappropriate for a family show. Overall this show lacked any coherence and any spirit. It was only an hour.

If you do go I would not recommend the food packages as it is not worth the money. Again, it was like eating at a venue in the 80s. Cocktails were between 12-14 dollars.

The service from the staff was very good and I found them attentive. The transfer to our hotel was also smooth. It was nice that audience members were invited on stage.

Overall, I feel this experience was poor value for money.

This show was awful. Use of animals on stage for no reason which was inappropriate, and the magic tricks were impressive 30 years ago...not in this day and age.
The only decent part of the show was the acrobats.

We are sorry you were a very rare guest who did not enjoy the show. With the largest cast and the only professional theater on island, we have had over five million satisfied visitors since 1990. For clarity, our illusions are original and were custom designed and built in 2016 by one of the world's foremost illusion designers. Nevertheless, all comments are important to us. Please let us know the next time you're in Guam. As Guam's leading tourist attraction group with 400 team members we would be more than happy to offer you a discount to one of our other tours.

What an excellent family date night option. World class performance by the
entire cast from start to finish.
I love how they interact and engage with their audience. My 8 year old son
participated in one of their magic act, he sure did had a fun night. All in all a great experience for us as a family.
Zubrick magic show is phenomenal; a must see even for us locals!

Nice time was had by everyone. We did the dinner meal and show and it was very nice. Food was abundant and of good quality, the show was outstanding and like being in Vegas for a Siegfried and Roy show. Recommend going there for a night out with the wife, girlfriend or when family comes to town. Children will like it too!

A waitress tried to sit us to a table has poor view made up a table we'd like to sit was reserved. She told us to pay $20 additional per person to sit at next table. Eventually we sat at another table and the table we asked for remainded empty until show finished. Besides that no one ever came to take our drinks. They paid us back $5 each upon asked. Poor services.

We went for our first date when my boyfriend got back from a long trip away. It was an amazing show. We had delicious steaks. The whole show was just an incredible experience.

Wow! What a beautiful location! The lobby is sparkling clean and beautiful complete with a beautiful dancer from the show to take pictures with. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

The dining area/theatre was just as beautiful. Candle lit tables and soft music created a nice ambiance for the dinner. Dinner choices were limited to lobster or Filet Mignon but great choices! It was a four course meal and every dish was delicious! The wait staff were expeditious yet knew how to space out the courses. I did not feel rushed at all.

The show - WOW! A Las Vegas Cirque type show with gorgeous technical dancers, acrobats, contortionists, tigers, birds and a magician! This show was very entertaining! My favorite part was when the dancers came out with a graffiti wall in the background. The dancers soloist received rhythmic applause cheering her on while she performed technical dance tricks. There was also amazing magic performed with a white tiger appearing in one act and a saber tiger appearing in another act! So much fun to watch this show.

This is a perfect treat for anyone celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just passing through!

They also have a "cocktail" show after the dinner show for those who prefer not to have dinner, but I recommend making it a special evening.

This is a MUST DO when in Guam. A+A+A+A+
