    Amazing show
    Amazing show!! Our kids loved it! The audience was very involved. Definitely worth see! Adults and kids of all ages will enjoy it. Very small group audience which makes it so much more fun

    Magical Night
    5/5. I asked my favorite magician if I should come to this show, only to find out that Shoot Ogawa was someone he admired when he was younger and wish to learn from! Shoo Ogawa was amazing and beyond what I imagined. I hope he comes to Magic Castle soon! I hope to see him there!

    You will be amazed and entertained! Just go
    This was our first experience with live close up magic but thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We went to the Friday early show at 5pm which unfortunately but luckily for us has a small turn out so we were able to have a very intimate experience with just a handful of other guests. However Kekoa (opener) to Shoot (main) did not hold anything back and delivered both an entertaining/funny and endearing/personalized show. Particularly impressed by how Shoot handled the array of questions from one particularly vocal intoxicated guest while being sensitive to the enjoyment of the rest of the guests and being transparent and honest with his philosophy on what is true magic. The show or “tricks” performed are mesmerizing and will surly delight, highly recommend for anyone looking for some “magic” during their trip to Hawaii.

    Best Magic show
    Read the reviews from Trip Advisor and decided to take my two daughters and parents to the show. It was funny, entertaining and everyone loves it. The gifts to the children at the end of the show is a nice touch. Highly recommended

    Fun night out!
    What a fun night out! I saw the place when out walking and grabbed a flyer. The reviews looked great so I booked a couple of tickets and am real glad I did. We witnessed Shoot the magician perform an incredible number of magical fears in rapid succession which had the small crowd amazed. His humour and crowd work were excellent and he was a very polished performer obviously at the top of his game. We were distracted a little by the young child who became restless very early in to the show (we caught the 5 pm show) and I thought the parent should have heeded the advice to remove them from the room earlier to avoid spoiling the show for others? Nevertheless, we’ll worth a visit and we’re still trying to figure out how some of the tricks were done this morning! Thanks guys, very slick and professional show!

    A Not To Miss Show in Waikiki
    A friend recommended the magic show while holidaying in Waikiki. The show was outstanding…have to say time flew as we’re having so much fun and dazzled by magician Shoot Ogawa. What makes the night special is the audience is small. You get to interact with the magician…I was chosen and still can’t figure out how Shoot got a goldfish into a wine glass while I held the glass. Everyone connected to the show were wonderful, special shout out to Merlin the rabbit. Shoot is the best magician I’ve seen.

    Magical Mystery Show
    Great for families! For kids I recommend doing the free magic class at 3:00 PM and the show at 5:00 PM (7:00 PM is fuller and has more adults). We had front row seats with lots of interaction. Plenty of promo codes online to save.

    BEST MAGICIAN ! Lively interactive show
    Fantastic unbelievable ( literally) magic shows. The proximity to the magician as he did his act made the show very captivating! So much laughter and fun throughout the performance . We have been to multiple magic shows in L.A. , Lake Tahoe , Las Vegas and Dallas and this by far surpasses them all. We highly recommend going for a fun night out

I thought the things in the museum before the show had some pretty cool stuff! The room only holds about 40 people so get your tickets early. The ambience was really great with the decor that gave the place an early Victorian ambience and they tied it in with ancient Hawaiian history, too! But the best part, of course, was the magic. Closeup and parlor magic are my favorites with the audience being only a few feet from the performers. Slight of hand magic is the only way to go. One of the best routines I enjoyed was the eggbag. It really doesn't matter that you know what's coming because you won't see it anyway. Amazing and so entertaining and funny! Audience members were used as volunteers for some of the routines and the routines were so much fun with the audience participation and fast moving action. And what's great is that there'll be a different magician performing in a few weeks. If you are Waikiki, this is a must see, especially if you are looking for great entertainment and magic! Only the best magicians are selected to perform at the Magical Mystery Show! And if that wasn't enough, the parking is complimentary for those attending the show. And for those that have kids, they give free magic lessons to those that have attended the show in the past.

This is a show you can't miss! I took my family to see the show and they loved every minute of it! All the performers are top notch! This is a great show geared for adults and kids alike.

Kekoa's sword swallow got me good and I still can't figure out how Nathan got a named card folded into a balloon held by someone in the audience the whole time! Prior to this Jonathan somehow made coins appear and disappear right in front of my eyes with something he called a portal. How the heck?

The vintage decor is very beautiful and there's some very odd and interesting things to see before the show and even had a bit of a history and heritage lesson. I'm definitely going back again! I'd recommend this show to everyone!

World Class magician Shoot Ogawa was marvelous! Host Jerry Eiting set the stage for the evening and also got to meet the creator Jonathan Todd and superb magician Kekoa Erickson. The actual show ran a bit over an hour and had one great moment after another. Shoot Ogawa presents both classic and original magic with a special humor and professionalism. He puts the audience at ease which allows everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. Several "Wow!" moments with continuous humor. Highly recommended!!!

Mr. Ogawa was brilliant! Loved the Victorian splendor and history weaving England and Hawaii! So grateful to have this level of talent in Hawaii! You enter through a closed room with Victorian curio cases and wonder how you will be transported to the Victorian parlor for the event, but all will be revealed. We have had the pleasure and privilege to attend The Magic Castle in Hollywood, but that is a big venue, you can't compare the intimacy that you have with The Magical Mystery Show right here in Waikiki where you are up close and personal with the magician. What a privilege and honor to have seen Shoot Ogawa. He is charming, boyish and so skilled. You keep trying to see how he does things, but you can never figure it out, which is why he is the best in the world as judged by his peers. We want to share this with our friends and family, that's for sure! Go see it, you will not regret it!

Magician Shoot Ogawa was so funny with a mind blowing performance! My kids (ages 6 & 9) were equally entertained throughout the entire show. It is obvious why he is rated #1 in the world for slight of hand.
Lots of audience participation and laughs all around. I laughed so much my face hurts! Highly recommended!!

Honestly was the best experience for a local or tourist! I didn’t know what to expect and the magicians performed the highest level of magic. It was funny, very entertaining and very personal. It’s a different experience then going to a big theater you can feel the magic in the room. They kept the audience engaged made me laugh and I’m so glad I came to the show. Everyone come see it because it’s one of the best experiences here in ohau!

Booked tickets for this at the last minute, and so glad we did. We were part of a very small audience which made the whole show very up close and personal. Shoot Ogawa was amazing and kept us entertained and astounded. The tickets are expensive, but it was a great show and we're still talking about it!

What a show! If you enjoy magic at all, you gotta come to this show!

I have been to both the Maui and now the Honolulu venues. Both were superb.

Magical Mystery Show really has some of the best magicians in the world on their rotation.

Last night we (my wife and I) saw Shoot Ozawa -- he won the Best Magician earlier this year at the triennial magic contest in Canada. Not only was his magic flawless, the patter that went along with it kept the audience (and me!) in stitches through the entire show.
