Mac King’s Comedy Magic show makes me really happy. It is a family friendly (very kid oriented, really) magic and comedy show that still has a lot to offer adults.
At its core, the show is a magic show with rope tricks, card tricks, sleight of hand, fire, some magical appearances and disappearances and his signature goldfish tricks. The show is really well written and has some finely crafted humor woven into it. (something you can hone during a show that has been running for almost 20 years). There is also a lot of room for improv during the audience participation segment. (a few for kids and a few for adults).
Don’t let the afternoon time slot (1p and 3p) fool you. This is a high quality show. The afternoon time slot is a reflection of the kid/family friendly focus, not the show quality. It isn’t as flashy and boisterous as Penn & Teller, but it shares a lot of the sensibilities for a much more reasonable price.

(updated Feb 1, 2019)
Caesars joined the ranks of other hotels to charge for parking. They allow a 1 hour grace period – the first hour of self-parking is free, but after that, you will have to pay to park at all Caesars properties except the Rio (which is off-Strip) and Planet Hollywood (which does charge for valet).
Hotel guests can charge the parking fee to their room, using their room key for access at all Caesars Entertainment hotels.
Total Rewards Platinum, Diamond and Seven Stars players receive free self- and valet-parking. Your Total Rewards card is used for access. Continue reading Caesars Las Vegas Hotels Parking Charges
