"Rick Thomas does NOT disappoint!"
July 2019 NEW
My husband and I saw Rick Thomas 4 years ago in Branson, but this time our 9 and 11 year old daughters joined us. When we arrived to the box office to get our tickets we were shocked and pleased that we managed to receive center, front row tickets! The show was amazing. The set has changed since we saw it last, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time. Watching my girls experience the illusion was an experience in itself. They are now huge fans.
I also researched several different websites for the lowest price tickets and Tripster was by far the lowest price. We will always use Tripster when booking now!

"Amazing show"
May 2019
I am not a big fan of magic shows but my husband wanted to see this guy. It was amazing. We had front row seats and I still don't know how he did it. I am a very logical thinking kind of person and I just couldn't believe it.

"An Amazing Show"
August 2018
This was a great show. We've seen numerous magicians/illusionists in the past, but none were better than Rick Thomas. His rapport with the audience was great and his illusions amazing. My wife and I even got to be onstage as part of the show!

"Good show, but..."
June 2018
The show was very good and I really enjoyed it. However, the dancers need to be covered up a little more and the dance moves less seductive. I was shocked at the very beginning when the dancers entered the stage. The illusions themselves were great. Just clean up the dancing.

"Loved the show....but"

The show was good and the illusions were really cool. It was a bit slow to start because of the dancing guys and girls. I wasn't really sure what their purpose was and it seemed in the beginning the show was a competition between dueling dancers and a magician. The second half was really good. I personally felt like it was a comedy/magic show because at one time I would in awe because of the illusions and the next I would be laughing at the comments Rick had made or his interactions with the audience. I have this 4 out of 5 because I feel the ladies on stage need more clothing. Being a Christian couple, there was more than one occasion where my husband felt very uncomfortable and their were parts of the show he would either look down or look at me. I personally would not care to see most of the girls on stage go all spread eagle everytime she is twirling about on stage and her legs spread wide open as she goes through the dance routine. I am totally for dancers looking nice and the attire looking professional, but these ladies need more clothing!!!

A must see. Rick is a great performer, his wife is a bomb-shell :) and he was super awesome to our son, who was selected to go on stage to be part of the act. The kids all loved it. One of the must-see attractions in Branson.

A very nice theater, snacks on site, plenty of parking (on a hill, of course). There are several moments of wow! There are many of not so much. Overall, not a bad show, but definitely not worth repeating.
