“Fabulous Show!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is an absolutely terrific show that everyone of all ages will love. The magic is up-close and personal, making it absolutely captivating, and the magician interacts beautifully with the audience. He is also a great comedian, and funny without resorting to humor that demeans anyone or is in any way mean-spirited. Mr. Blade is great with the kids in particular. My 9 year-old son got to participate in the stage show, and any other eager kids were accommodated on-stage too. He won't soon forget it, and we'll make it a stop every time we visit Hot Springs (this was our first-ever trip, but it won't be the last).

“Great family show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere was excellent. Our 3 ye old was captivated. Even the doubters in our group admit that the show was a lot of fun! The music was a little loud at times but the up close, intimate setting made the illusions that much more fun.

“Fun, entertaining, and great for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We went here for an after dinner show. It started at 8pm but they requested you arrive by 7:30. The show had plenty of extra seating (Friday night show) so we had a 3rd row view which was good.
The venue is a quaint stage with a seating capacity of ~100 seats. The illusions were entertaining but because there is limited lighting/effects, they are not too difficult to figure out if you frequent magic shows. However, his personality and performance is what really makes the show. It was entertaining for both adults and kids. The 2 hr show really helps you feel you get a good value and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Hot Springs.

“Great evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Maxwell Blade's show is wonderful. Although we had to wait quite a while, since we wanted seats near the front, but it was worth it. Everyone in our party had a great time. Well worth the price as well.

“Great Show!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

I'm not one who likes magic shows, but this was very enjoyable! Maxwell Blade is spontaneous, quick wit, and entertaining. Really works with the audience and got our group laughing. Nice intimate theater, but definitely not fancy. It's downtown and in a couple old storefronts. Still better than those on a big stage though.
