Owner description: STEP RIGHT UP and get ready to laugh, have fun, and celebrate a magical night out with Carnival of Illusion! This top-rated program is "Revitalizing Magic" by blending an international travel theme with all the charms of a Vaudeville-inspired roadshow. Travel up-close with the national recipients for "Excellence in Magic" and catch a lively slice of magical history! Carnival of Illusion is Magic, Mystery, and OOOH la la! This Must-See event is great for date-nights, anniversaries, celebrations and special nights out. Purchase tickets in advance. Due to the popularity and intimate seating, shows sell out. For audiences 10 years and older. Step right up, join the fun, and experience an Evening of Old-World Magic!

“I loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Wile in Tucson for the gem show I had the opportunity to see Carnival of illusion with a friend, we managed to score front row seats and see everything closeup, and as hard as i tried to work out how the illusions are done there was no way i could pick it, amazing show i would recommend it for a fun evening.

“Unexpectedly Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was really a nice surprise. The magic was entertaining, but the magicians were charming, making eye contact with the audience and keeping them heavily involved. We sat in the front row and our friends sat in the back. I would recommend this event highly. I would probably not pay extra for the front row because they limit attendance to a very small audience. One of the better shows i have seen! :)

“It was okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This way okay. Something to do, but not really something you would do more than once. I kind of feel like the performers are not really that much into it; it was kind of like they were on autopilot.

“Great Performers - Great Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed Carnival of Illusion. It was much more than I expected. Roland and Susan are great performers and their interaction with the audience as well as the intimate setting made this a unique, and fun theater experience. I would recommend Carnival of Illusion to anyone looking for a fun, affordable evening with your date, family or friends. This show is perfect for out of town guests too! You won't find a show like this anywhere else!
I definitely plan to go back.
