We had one night in Vegas and I needed to find a show suitable for the kids to watch (aged 6 and 10).
After about half an hour's search on the internet in the hotel room, the only reasonably child friendly show I could find was "THE GREATEST MAGIC SHOW ON EARTH" (the Excalibur show wasn't on that night). Advertised as being voted best show for several years and with several "awards" from magician's guild and the like, it looked good.
Rather naively envisaging a Vegas dinner show, I booked "VIP" dinner and show tickets for myself, Mrs Chris, the 2 children and their grandma to see the show.
Arriving at the place was a bit of a shock. The "hotel casino" is a little run down and you walk through something closer to an English working man's club than a Vegas casino to get your tickets.
The before show VIP dinner is a set "chicken, beef or veg" menu held in the hotel's cafe down the corridor from the small theatre.
The food was very very ordinary, but the service was exceptionally good.
The magic show itself was held in a 400 seat theatre. It's probably worth paying the extra $20 for a booth as they are comfortable and there is a waitress to get drinks during the show.
The compare was funny in a self deprecating way and involved some members of the audience without resorting to belittling the volunteers in any way as is so often the preserve of stage presenters.
He introduced 3 magicians over the course of about 80 minutes. 1 was very good, one, ok and one frankly poor.
But, it was an entertaining 80 minutes and the kids absolutely loved it. You get to meet the magicians and compare afterwards and they sell t-shirts for $5 which they will all sign for you.
Overall, not what we expected and you have to have a bit of a sense of humour, but as long as you don't go expecting a ritzy "Vegas" show and take it on face value, you will have a good evening.
Just don't stop for the karaoke in the bar afterwards.
