Unless you're a master magician yourself, it's impossible not to be in awe of what these professionals can do in front of a live audience. From masterful card tricks to seeming death-defying escapes, these mysteries will both stump and enthrall you, and that goes for your kids as well. The show itself makes for great family viewing, although your younger members might need some reassurance of a happy conclusion when the stars start brandishing chainsaws and allowing themselves to be restrained and hung upside down.

The illusionists aren't only great at staging tricks; they're also excellent at entertaining with a flourish. Although this helps induce some laughs at times, it also dials up the tension during the tricks with elements of danger. Just be sure your kids are ready for this kind of content before you tune in to watch. If they are, then sit back, relax, and prepare to be amazed by some amazing feats of deception.
