Great show! Not only was it a magic show, but it also had some hula. Great food service and open bar. We loved the close table magic that was performed.

We were pleasantly surprised with the entire show, production, and food at the Kupanaha Show. I didn't expect much from the food, but it was actually pretty good. We had steak and shrimp, and found it tender and flavorful. It also includes an open bar with mixed drinks and beer. After you eat, the magic show begins. The magic tricks are pretty big scale and will leave you trying to figure out what you just saw. They even throw in some Hula dancing for entertainment. Everything has a Hawaiian theme.

One thing to remember as you look through the various shows and activities in Maui is that some of them come with food. And some of them come with really good food.
Kupanaha is one of these.
And, while you are eating (and drinking, the waitstaff bring around Mai Tai's, Blue Hawaii's, a really tasty fruit juice, and other things), the "Close Magician" comes by the table and entertains with card tricks (note: never play cards with these people) and rings. Then, dinner finished, Jody takes over and leads you through an old-style magic show, complete with more card tricks, shredded paper, pretty girls, swords through boxes, "how did that get there?" disappearing and reappearing wristwatches, audience interaction, kids on stage, various puns, and sawing a woman (his wife, incidentally) in half. All of this is interspersed with an assortment of short hula shows by some young but talented performers.

Not a big magic fan, but was intrigued by "teaser" demonstration at timeshare orientation meeting. Proved an entertaining evening - magic woven around Hawaiian magic history and dry humor of magician. Food was fine and included choice of several tropical drinks with refills until the main show. Intimate theatre plus small crowd (maybe 60 people) put us right in the middle of the action. How did he do that? many times over.

Food was great, servers and bussing staff very friendly. The show is very kid friendly. The magician and younger starter magician were both sweet, and did great shows. Not the best magic show, but a very good one. I would recommend :)
