“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

First trip to the Dells and this show ranks high on our list of favorites. Our three boys 13-10-8 thought the show was terrific and we did too. Cool tricks, illusions and audience participation. The really cool thing was I came to pick up our tickets a hour before the show...the box office lady had a couple of calls coming in and she politely greeted me, motioning it would be just a moment. Next thing, the magician himself appeared, grabbed a phone and gave the box office lady a hand. I didn't recognize him at first as he was in sweats. He seemed pretty genuine and thanked us several times personally and as a group for coming. It was nice to be away from the "corporate" feel of some shows. This was first-rate all around.

“Great show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was a really great show that my son and I thoroughly enjoyed. Rick Wilcox and his wife/assistant put on a very entertaining and professional show. He utilized the audience, was very well prepared and continued to surprise us with his tricks.

“Mr Magican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Rick & his wife put on quite a show. My son was totally amazed. Would recomend for the young and old at heart. He has magical wands that make dollars appear at night when you wave them over your childrens pillows when they sleep (that trick cost me alot of dollars) Parents moral of the story don't buy the wand upon leaving LOL

“Perfect for the Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

When we went to the Dells with our family we went to several different attractions, but the Rick Wilcox theater was our favorite!! Rick's skill, obvious self-promoting humor, and audience interaction was so much fun. There was a perfect blend of illusion to comedy to down right awe inspiring "how did he do that" moments.

There isn't a bad seat in the theater! Stay close to the front if you hope for Rick to choose you or your child to come up to the stage to be one of his many volunteers.
