About Magic Immersive

Take a step into intrigue, mystery, and wonder with the world-premiere of Magic Immersive. A labyrinth of magical rooms transporting audiences to different decades in time, Magic Immersive takes you on an immersive journey through the evolution of magic as the world’s most famous illusionists share their deepest secrets. Conceived by British high-tech magician, Jamie Allan (iMagician), this is the first time audiences can marvel at the greatest illusions up close – all in a socially-distanced setting.

Upon entry to the Magic Immersive experience, each socially distanced group journeys through time and place with truly unique encounters over their one-hour passage. Each of the four galleries integrated into the exhibition features a presentation that moves each group through the various ages and mysteries of magic spanning hundreds of years. While keeping a sense of mystery and adventure, Magic Immersive aims to allow the general public a peek behind the curtain to learn about the art of magic through spectacular effects and illusions in an up-close and personal experience.

All guests will be required to visit all rooms under the careful orchestration of our Magic Guides. Magic Guides will be assigned to each group upon their arrival at Magic Immersive.
