"Good show, but..."
June, 2018 NEW
The show was very good and I really enjoyed it. However, the dancers need to be covered up a little more and the dance moves less seductive. I was shocked at the very beginning when the dancers entered the stage. The illusions themselves were great. Just clean up the dancing.

"Good show!"
June, 2018
This is my first show in Branson since I was child. Our group consisted of a 35, 29, and 10 year old females. We were seated on the front row which wasn’t the best location, and we were worried it wouldn’t live up to the reviews but we all three enjoyed the show. We laughed a lot and were shocked by several of the magic tricks because they were so good. I recommend seeing him at least once.

"DISAPPOINTING"
May, 2018
I found his dancers lewd and disgusting. Lots of talk and sweating and not that many illusions. didnt realize I would be watching seductive dance instead of magic tricks

"Great show"
March, 2017
The staff at the show were wonderful as well as the show being fantastic. I am still asking myself....how did he do that. There is a lot of action on stage to keep you entertained all of the time. Rick's story's about his life were very inspirational. I had front row seats but they were really too close. If I get the chance to go again, I would want to be a little further back. The landscaping around the theatre is also beautiful and relaxing.

My husband and I visit our sons in Branson every summer. One show we never miss is The Magic of Rick Thomas. His illusions are spectacular! I’m still trying to figure them out. I love the way he shares personal stories and includes the audience in his performance. He’s also very funny. The dancers in his show are so talented. They add elegance and excitement to an already awesome show! I would recommend anyone visiting Branson go see this magic show!

My husband and I went to see Rick Thomas because I really like magic. I can only tell you this was a great, family-friendly show in Branson. Some tricks I'm still talking about. He included the audience in multiple ways, calling on stage really young children, any adults who wanted to get a closer look at how he performed one particular trick, and any others who were interested in trying to see a magician up close. He included lots of Vegas type tricks with disappearing helicopters and floating women, but the magic that most impressed me was the sleight of hand. This was a show well worth the time and money. I highly recommend it.

We went to see Rick Thomas in Branson tonight and to say it was amazing doesn't even touch the type of show this was. My husband & I have been here for 6 days, we've seen one to two shows each day; The Magic of Rick Thomas is by far the absolute BEST!!!! Rick has a lot of audience participation which only adds to the awwww and amazement of his show because there is no way he could have planned any of the things he did. He keeps you on the edge of your seat and in constant amazement of the things he does, from beginning to end it's an exhilarating experience we will NEVER forget for sure. If you want to see a show that will leave you in awwww then be sure to see his show!!! It's more than worth your time and you won't want it to end, he's the BEST!!! ♡ We will definitely go back every time we are in Branson!!!

The show was exhilarating from start to finish. The way Rick work with the audience kept us all on the edge of our seats. This was fantastic. Making a helicopter disappear was great. THEN HE BROUGHT IT BACK with an audience member in it...INSAINE!!!! loved it. My 10yo was nothing but oooo's and awwws in amazement. At the end of the show, Rick was kind enough to spend a bit of time with anyone that wanted to shake his hand, he gave the same attention to my 10yo as he did to every adult that came up to meet him. Thanks for capping off a great night Rick, I'm very grateful.
