Starring world-class magicians that have performed on some of the globe’s biggest stages, these popular shows are sure to delight guests of all ages. To help you make the most of your next escape, Acorn Cabin Rentals has put together a guide to three incredible Pigeon Forge magic shows.
1. Magic Beyond Belief
Magic Beyond Belief certainly lives up to its name! This one-of-a-kind show mixes head-scratching illusions with music, humor, and storytelling. Billed as “Broadway meets Las Vegas”, Magic Beyond Belief is a 2+ hour tour de force of entertainment.
Taking center stage in Magic Beyond Belief is Darren Romeo, also known as “The Voice of Magic”. After starring in the Off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks, Romeo moved to Las Vegas where he performed magic at the famous Caesars Palace hotel and casino. Romeo was mentored by legendary magicians Siegfried & Roy before headlining his own show at The Mirage. In 2004, Darren Romeo was named “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts.
Much like his heroes Siegfried & Roy, Romeo employs a beautiful white tiger in one of his signature tricks. Darren is also the only magician in the world authorized to perform the late Harry Blackstone’s iconic floating light bulb illusion.
2. The Wonders of Magic
Hosted by the WonderWorks indoor amusement park, The Wonders of Magic is another one of the most popular Pigeon Forge magic shows. This awesome show stars Terry Evanswood, the longest-running headline performer in the Smokies.
Evanswood grew up as a magical prodigy, having launched his career at the age of ten. As a young man, Terry was awarded a scholarship to attend the prestigious Chavez College of Magic. In 1991, he became the youngest magician to ever perform at the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. Evanswood has been recognized by the International Magicians Society with the coveted Merlin Award, which is the equivalent of an Academy Award for magic.
In The Wonders of Magic, Terry performs all of his best material, including sleight of hand tricks, card tricks, escape tricks, and even more amazing illusions. Be sure to stick around after the show so you can get an autograph from Evanswood and the rest of the cast.
3. Magic Spectacular
Magic Spectacular stars the husband and wife duo of Stephen and Cassandra Best. These talented magicians were the youngest double act to headline the Superstars of Magic Show in Las Vegas. The Bests have performed in 20 different countries and made appearances at NBA Halftime shows and on NBC, FOX, E!, and MTV.
Stephen and Cassandra are most famous for their quick change act, in which they change from one outfit into another within a matter of seconds. The Magic Spectacular show also features close-up magic, complex illusions, and fun audience participation. Magic Spectacular runs at the Memories Theatre and sometimes offers free general admission tickets!
