WonderWorks, a science-focused indoor amusement park located on International Drive in Orlando, has debuted an enhanced version of its magic comedy dinner show experience.
The "Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show" is hosted by magician Tony Brent, whose show was named one of "America's 10 Best Magic Shows" by the Travel Channel.
A camera has been placed on stage, zooming in on Brent as he performs his magic tricks, and that video is now projected on two large TV screens also located on stage. This will enable the entire audience to witness Brent's magic up close, which in the past was something only those closest to the stage could experience.
Among those tricks is a re-enactment of Harry Houdini's famous straightjacket escape, a new feature of the show.
In addition to the upgrades on stage, the theater's dining area has been refurbished. And beginning this month, there will be three shows daily at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Dinner includes unlimited hand-tossed pizza, salad and dessert plus unlimited beverages, including beer and wine. The show itself combines close-up magic, technology and audience participation.
Admission to the dinner show is $31.99 for adults (age 13 and older) and $21.99 for kids ages 4 to 12. Tickets can be booked online or purchased at the box office at WonderWorks Orlando.
