Some tricks were a little corny, but overall it was an entertaining show. My 8 year old really enjoyed it. We just wish more would have been done with the tigers.

We truly enjoyed this show! We were very skeptical at first and thought only our child would enjoy it. It was actually very entertaining and left us all wondering how they did some of the tricks. I thought he had a strange personality at first and then found that he was just very dry wit. We were entertained the whole time! Not cheap, but if you were only going to do one show- make this it!

Kirby and Bambi VanBurch put on an Amazing performance, and at the end he sat down and talked about how what he does is just an illusion, and that God is the only ONE who can make things happen! We did the meet and greet with them after the show. It was a fun evening!

Second time for me and my 8yr old son to see the show. Loved it, even though the performance is abbreviated from last year; may be due to the smaller venue. Circumspection, in my opinion, either about Kirby's marital status or personal issues are immaterial and not relevant to the show. Branson itself is in a slow death spiral, which has affected attendance at all venues and as a result will diminish attractions.

Started late. Kirby had a bad attitude. He was irritated with his crew about a sound glitch and it seemed to ruin the show for him and us. For one trick the lighting was off and we could see the big cat crawl in the back of the box, another trick didn't work and he stopped it mid-trick and said come back if you want to see it - we really thought it was part of the show and would come back later, but no - it really was just a mess up. It was kind of sad, really. His wife, was trying really hard to keep up a good face and keep the audience engaged, but it was a terrible disappointment after all the good press we had seen on him.
