“Magical show - pass on dinner!”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

Purchased Level 3 tickets for a Friday night show including the buffet dinner with a 20% discount (search 'Greg Frewin online' for discounts). The total was $140 (taxes in). Dinner starts at 6:30, we arrived at 6 and we were the only ones there. No need to rush to dinner. There weren't a lot of people. The hostess said that everyone enjoying dinner that night would be moved up to Orchestra - which was great! Right in front of the stage! I don't know if this is something they do every night for dinner guests or just because the numbers were down.
I wouldn't recommend the buffet. It was just ok. Chicken Parm, Salmon, Roast Beef, roast potatoes, mixed veggies, pasta marinara, pasta salad, greens salad, dinner rolls and 2 pie options for desert. 1 fountain drink per person for dinner. Service wasn't fantastic.
We were greeted tableside by the manager - Rob, who said their numbers were down for the night (300 compared to a usual 700) but it was a Friday night and the end of the season.
The show itself was fantastic! Lots of theatrics, great music. Everything from a card trick to disappearing magician's assistants! The crowd was a little slow to get going but it might of been because the numbers were smaller. Great for kids, families and couples! Warning - he does pull 2 or 3 participants from the crowd! Don't sit close if you don't want to get singled out! Ha! Show started about 15 minutes late from 8pm but had two 45 minute sets with a 15 minute intermission! Good value for the dollar!
Would go back - just not for dinner!

“Very good”
Reviewed 22 September 2010

One of the three best things (Maid of the Mist and Botanical Gardens were the other two) we did in Niagra Falls. Greg is professional, and it's a great show for the kids. Nothing inappropriate and Greg's got just the right balance of humor. Well worth the time. The guy is good.

“Awesome Show! Would definitely go again”
Reviewed 11 September 2010

This show was really entertaining. My husband and I both enjoyed it a lot. Greg Frewin does a variety of illusions and all of them were really cool. I would definitely go again.

When you buy your tickets, each section is general admission, so get there kind of early. I normally hate being off to the side for shows, but we ended up being on a far side and the seats were still good. We were in the Orchestra section.

Before you purchase your tickets online, google Greg Frewin discount codes to find a promo code to enter when you are purchasing tickets. This saved us about 20%.

Canadian sales tax is very high...about 13% or so.

“Wonderful - Great fun for the family”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

We went to Greg's show on Sunday September 5th. It was fantastic! We sat on level 2 and had great seats right along the rail. I would not sit any farther back than the 3rd level. My 2 year old and 6 year old absolutely loved it. It held their attention the entire time which is saying a lot. The $3 popcorn didn't hurt either. The photo you can take with the tiger costs $20 at the end of the show and we skipped it. Overall - it was money well spent.

“Fabulous Show”
Reviewed 28 August 2010

We had heard from others that this was a terrific show so we bought tickets and dinner. We bought tickets for level 2 and were given a VIP booth for our party of five. Our vision of the stage was very good and our booth was very comfortable. There was a dinner buffet set up for those arriving at 6:30 pm. The dinner consisted of chicken parmigiana, roast beef, salmon, cole slaw, penne with tomato sauce, green salad, a greek salad, dinner rolls, and some other items, and desserts such as cream pies and fruit pies. You bring your plate to your seat and eat for about an hour. The food was not bad. It could have been warmed up though. You were also entitled to one drink such as a soda. The staff and waitress was efficient and friendly. At 7:30 pm the show crowd started to arrive and to take their seats. The theater was sold out this evening, which was a Monday evening which was a good sign that this was a good show and that people had heard the same thing that we did. To keep the audience entertained while waiting for the show to begin there were trivia questions related to magic presented on a screen. When the actual show started Mr. Frewin came out and seemed to engage the audience well. He made the audience laugh with jokes and mesmerized us with his tricks. His tricks ranged from illusions, card tricks, levitation, tricks where he is able to make things disappear, and even animals such as a tiger and a lion appear. People were chosen from the audience to be a part of the tricks, which made the tricks even more enjoyable. The straight jacket trick was a favorite of my son. Mr. Frewin begged a boy in the audience to help him out of the jacket and added that he had given him a cookie, which was funny. The show is face paced and highly professional. The magic tricks and entire show is on the level you would expect to see in Las Vegas and we were very pleased. We had a very enjoyable evening. We would recommend it to anyone. Greg Frewin is truly the international champion of magic.
