While visiting one of our favorite cites in January, we were so happy to find the Carnival of Illusion. We splurged on front row seats and thoroughly enjoyed an evening of old-fashioned fun and adventure! Our hosts, Eyed and Saarlot obviously enjoyed bringing us their...More

This is the second time we have seen this show and it continues to delight us. Now that it's coming to Phoenix more often we will make it a yearly event. Top grades!

So glad you felt all those emotions Sarah because that's exactly how we built the show. Each of the pieces represents an emotion and we were hoping that you'd be on an emotional roller coaster. So glad you had a fun time! Thank You!!!

This show is great value entertainment. I've paid twice the ticket price to see Penn and Teller in Oregon perform one of Saarlot's illusions. Very kid friendly. Coupons for $5 discount are available all over Tucson.

This is a clean, family-friendly show with a small audience (35 people per show). Excellent for all ages.. Fun, old-timey feel. You are close to the performers and still left wondering, "How did they do that magic trick?" A great two-person performing act. Wonderful!
