Magic and Comedy Review


Name Magic and Comedy Review
Category Indoor
Type Magic
Park Area Sheriff Sam's Saloon
First Year 1987
About the Show Info Box

Ben Ulin's magic and comedy show inside Sheriff Sam's Saloon. 2016 is his 29th year performing at Adventureland, making him one of the longest running acts at any amusement/theme park in the world. Probably.

In 1996, Ben moved to the Palace Theater to perform Unbelievable Magic and Mysteries. That year, the Rootin' Tootin' Wild West Review took over in the Saloon. Ben would return to the Saloon in 1997.

For 2016, shows are at 12 noon, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm and 5pm. There are two types of shows currently being performed.

The first and last show of the day (noon and 5pm) is the Glow! show, which is a blacklight magic show with no spoken words.

The middle shows of the day are traditional magic shows, with (as of 2016) two different shows in rotation.

To see all three shows, you need to watch: first OR last show, plus one odd-hour (1pm or 3pm) and one even hour (2pm or 4pm) show.
