My first magic show. Up close and personal. Excellent show. Very entertaining with a lot of interaction with audience. Such a nice, comical trickster. Me and my husband enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend!

Pleasantly surprised. Overall an entertaining show. Some tricks were more thinkers that smaller children may not fully appreciate. Worth the money to go see the show in such an intimate setting.

The venue is really quite small, which is very good. All of the tricks/illusions are done very close to the audience. Tristan and his assistants will amaze you....well worth the price of admission.

While staying in Lake Geneva we made sure that we got tickets to see this show. It always sells out fast as the theater only holds 51 people. Tristan is a fantastic Magician. We are still trying to figure out how he does his Illusions/tricks!...More

The show was ok. It is definitely up close & personal, but pricey for only 1 hour of entertainment. Most of the tricks can be figured out.

Tristan is personable, talented and funny. He is a true illusionist and left us wondering about two or three of the presentations the next day! Buy your tickets online ahead of time to be sure you can get in when you want to attend. Highlight...More

This was better than the Vegas shows. Well worth the money. It is great entertainment. Have no idea how he does the first class Magic. It’s MAGIC.

I think the staff there will do anything you need to help you. Parking would be the only problem for you. We walked everywhere, didn't pay attention to close handicap parking. But they are close to the street for curb drop... More

Absolutely. A four-year-old went up on stage to assist with one of the tricks during the show that I saw.
