  • Mac King Comedy Magic Show

    All ages


    VIP Seat Upgrade: Free Drink & 2-for-1 Buffet Voucher

    Mac and his goldfish (don't worry, we won't spoil the surprise for you) have been renowned fixtures of the Las Vegas show circuit for over a decade and it's easy to see why. At first glance, his retro style may be off-putting, but don't be deterred by the plaid suit and bad haircut – retro doesn't mean old-fashioned, and in this case it certainly doesn’t mean boring!

  • Nathan Burton Comedy

    All ages


    Blink-and-miss-‘em illusions and a wicked wit fuel Nathan Burton's lightning-paced showcase of teleportation and transformation. As seen on the first and fourth seasons of America's Got Talent, Burton has unlocked the secrets of self-levitation, dematerialization, and appearing simultaneously in homes across the country. Whether slicing up showgirls or throwing himself in the microwave, the old-school showman excels at visual gags and moderately risqué, though family-friendly, one-liners. Elaborate props, high-energy music, and a bevy of lovely assistants add to the spectacle.

  • Murray The Magician

    Minimum Age: 5


    With his wild, electric blond hair, Murray is hard to miss. Some 22 million viewers nationwide watched the charismatic magician perform as a semifinalist on the NBC hit show "America's Got Talent." He did the largest magic trick ever performed on the show by making a 1918 steam train locomotive vanish in mere seconds. Now you can see Murray perform live on the Vegas stage. Murray is well known for his larger-than-life illusions, such as making a Ferrari appear from thin air and transforming a showgirl into a 450-pound tiger. With a knack for keeping his audience entranced with amazement, his show gives his onlookers a uniquely immersive experience. During the show he performs two of his signature illusions in the middle of the audience, giving them an intrusive 360-degree view of him and his tricks while leaving no hiding space. Even when he's on stage, the showroom makes everyone feel like they are up close to Murray and his mind-blowing magic.

  • Legends in Concert

    Minimum Age: 5


    Legends in Concert isn’t just a "tribute show," it’s THEE tribute show. And it has all the big names. Las Vegas heavyweights like Elvis, Barry White, Frank Sinatra, Prince and Lady Gaga. Like the O.G. artists themselves, Legends takes things up a notch by adding bedazzled costumes, crazy, wild backup dancers, and an over-the-top on-stage orchestra. All of this awesomeness isn’t to take away from the fact that these performers can really sing. These are trained, talented performers and not some fools they pulled out of the local karaoke bar.
