My family and more importantly my daughter enjoyed the show. There were lots of illusions that we thought were great. This show is by far one of the best in town. Tripster had other prices beat by over 10 bucks each.

"Rick Thomas does NOT disappoint!"
July 2019
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.

If you want to see some really nice magic, this is the place. They do a great job of making you say, hey how did he do that! A few tricks you have to actually scratch you head in amazement. If you read the other reviews you will see most people agree. How does he make that women (his wife) float like that? But don't get to excited, many of the tricks have been seen many times before by many other magicians. Rick was the inventor and they all copied him he said. He still does some really nice stuff. But if you write a negative review he might just make it go away, disappear like the things in his fantastic show. Guess that's what happens when you mess with the Magic of Rick Thomas. Would I go see it again, yeah, I think I would but I bet I would have the same thoughts the second time. I bet this review disappears just like the last two I wrote. You are doing Great Rick, keep up the good work!

Rick Thomas is a dynamic presence on stage. His enthusiasm Is infectious. We enjoyed the life lessons interwoven in the show too. The segments with the levitations are mesmerizing. The chemistry between he and his wife made it even more magical. A special segment was when he brought an older couple up and visited with them about special events in their marriage. Then, he gave them a handkerchief with their answers on it. Wow, how did he do that ? Never left the stage? He also made a helicopter disappear! There were a couple of technical glitches, but he handled them with ease, We would have liked to see the video about his tigers though. Loved seeing his dogs. Rick was very supportive of a young girl who came up on stage to help him, and made her feel comfortable. We would highly recommend this show for all ages and families.

Have seen Rick Thomas on numerous occasions, first several times in Las Vegas and most recently in Branson. Mansion of Dreams is an elaborate show, with some novel illusions and some classics re-imagined. Rick is very smooth and polished, yet still connects well with his audience. Highly recommend.
