Magician Aaron Radatz Opens New Family-Friendly Magic Show in Las Vegas

Inside Magic Image of Aaron Radatz Poster for New Show in Las VegasWe love Vegas.  We love the sights, sounds, smells and crowds.  However, we are over the age of majority and therefore have access to all that Vegas offers.

Of course, having “access” to a club or location is not the same thing as “being  permitted entry.”  As the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals  opined in our recent case, Tim Quinlan d/b/a Inside Magic v. Club Zing, 231 F.3d 1014, 1016 (10th Cir. 2010), “Petitioner (that’s us!)  is reminded that just because this night club cannot deny access on the basis of age, sex, race, or creed; it is well within their discretion to exclude Petitioner and his type.”

Elsewhere in the opinion, “his type” was defined as:

stuporous by breeding or choice, dressed in a manner evidencing the lack of mirrors in his home, excessively needy and seeking constantly the affirmation of the front-door staff (‘Do you think I am pretty?’), and apparently impecunious to the point of paying for apparently unnecessary additional drinks with “Inside Magic Bucks” or postage stamps.”

We digress.  Our point was only there is a dearth of things to do with kids in Las Vegas.  Once touted as a Family-Friendly City, it quickly returned to its wild natural state fit for a family, the Manson Family.

Aaron Radatz has what we call in the business, skills.  He is more than a nice guy with abounding energy and ideas, he has the ability to perform effects that seem virtually identical to real magic.  That is not just our opinion – Time Magazine called Aaron Radatz “the magical entertainer to see” and Mystic Hollow’s home team, the Detroit Tigers, raved, “You will have to see it to believe it.”

He has toured nearly all of the states in our union (45 out of 50), and brought the closest thing to real magic to 37 countries on six of the earth’s seven continents.

According to the local Vegas news outlets, he began is run at the Clarion Hotel, just east of Las Vegas Boulevard.  This is the perfect location for families who want to take a break from the Strip to see a great performer and some outstanding illusions.

Aaron Radatz to Perform Wild Escape

aaron radatz and crateThe Valdosta Daily Times of beautiful Valdosta, Georgia went all out in its coverage of Aaron Radatz participation in the town’s Wild Adventures All-American Weekend.

Mr. Radatz told the reporter he is kicking it old school.  Actually, that is our interpretation of his quote.  “This is a straight-forward Houdini-style escape,” Mr. Radatz said. “Some contemporary magicians use steel boxes and other materials. But I like it old school, using wooden crates like Houdini used to use.”

And like Houdini, Mr. Radatz’ restraints will not consist solely of a chained box submerged in the Wild Adventures Lake.

Mr. Radatz will confound his efforts to escape the crate.

He intends to be chained and handcuffed within the box before being dropped into the Lake.

Officials have ensured that the crate will sink quickly by drilling holes to allow water to replace the limited air space in the box.

Mr. Radatz noted that when Houdini performed the escape, it was a test of the Showman’s ability to escape quickly from one restraint.
