I was at PKI a couple of weeks ago and I was sitting by the fountain when a magician came up to me and did a couple of tricks. He was a regular employee and I believe his name was David. I was just wondering if any other parks have magicians? I think that it is a great idea to have magicians entertaining the guests.

Speaking of Performers who walk around parks, there are people who walk around DCA in elastic sheets and just stay still and then move. This is a waste of a job and i think it got cut.

PKI has some lady in the Action Zone who juggles machetes and does other circus-style things.

Knoebels has the Power Surge. It makes the change in my pockets disapear!

Actually they get magicians at the bandstand once in a while but I don't think they have full time ones unless you count the matainance people on the Phoenix.

Great Adventure has these guys all around the park juggling things all day. and some freaky guys in suits that do magic for you, thats all really. Tricks are ok but i love the jugglers. they are awesome. This one guy threw all 3 pins in the air turned around and caught then behind his back. it was so cool.

Hmmmm let's see...I've been to MANY MANY Magic shows throughout my life many big and small (magic is a small hobby of mine.) It's always nice to see some magic shows at amusement parks.

I know PKI actually has THE BEST magic show out of the 20 or so I've been to at theme parks through the years. They still have the Magic show this year.

CP has an ok magic show during Halloweekends.

SFWoA has a magic show all year around...ok tricks...some are actually pretty funny (comedy wise).

Wyandot Lake had a magic show last year...not sure if they do this year. The one I saw was actually a pretty good close up magic show.

So I guess, to say the least, Ohio does have it's fair share of theme park magic shows.

ladies and gentlemen, due to an increase in line jumping, people caught cutting in line will no longer be ejected from the park. u will be ejected from the ride

At the Efteling themepark they have a these Midsummernight dream days. The parc stays open till midnight and looks great with all the coloured lighting under the trees. Troughout the whole park there are magicians, actors dresses up like monsters, elves, wizzards, gnomes. Really cool! Especially at the Haunted Castle. The actors overthere still scare the living crap out of me everytime i walk there.

This season:
2 parks

Bilelele- The Magician at SFWoA is at the Palace Theater . It's the building located across from Time Warp and slightly under Big Dipper. As for a chain saw act you might want to be careful since you're under Big Dipper (I like that ride to much)...try it under Mr. Hydes Nasty Fall though ;)

I'm not talking about magic shows or jugglers, I'm talking about magicians who walk around the park and do tricks for people who are willing to watch them.
