Rick Thomas puts on a highly entertaining show with dancers, music, and illusions. He also made the show very funny with his audience participation. We laughed and were amazed at the same time. Highly recommend.

Maybe I'm getting too old to attend magic shows, but I found this show to be so "typical" and without much to thrill. For starters, there seemed to be only 4-5 major "acts" with lots of time wasted trying to be funny with little kids. I could care less about his family story too. Most of his "magic" was courtesy of effective lighting. There are so many high quality entertainment options in Branson that I would suggest attending others.

It saddens me when someone is so blatantly off regarding the show. My production presents more magical effects than any magic production world-wide. There are at least 16 massive effects in my show, including the production and vanish of a helicopter and an effect seen nowhere else in the world where we dance in the air. If you had appreciation for the art, you would realize that the exquisite lighting is flawless in pulling off the highest caliber of magic both in Branson and internationally. My show continues to tour the world and is presented in the finest venues, including the Sydney Opera House in Australia and the Palace Theatre on Broadway.

You come to Branson, to a patriotic and family-oriented part of the country, and then sit at your keyboard and type the terrible words that you do not care about my family story. I am so sorry that the extra 3 minutes I added to my show that day to express a bit of appreciation for my wife on our Anniversary landed on you with such distaste. You are also a hypocrite, condemning me for the family man I am, yet on other reviews you praise them for it.

My show is 2 hours and ten minutes long. Regarding the children, you are missing the mark. You sir, are not seeing the bigger picture. The 'lots of time' you said I wasted with the children was 10 minutes. There are only two effects in the entire show where children are involved. I teach a little boy how to make a woman float in the air. I then teach a little girl how to follow her dreams. I guarantee this had a positive impact on their lives and the lives of the other 99.9% of the audience. At that moment it is about the children. Whether you thought me funny or not is irrelevant and so is your review.
