Tristan Crist Magic Theatre #1 Lake Geneva Attraction on TripAdvisor
Tristan Crist Magic Theatre, ranked #1 attraction in Lake Geneva on TripAdvisor, has unveiled a brand-new larger venue in Lake Geneva. More than tripling his seating capacity with a 165 seats, magician, illusionist and entrepreneur Tristan Crist has created the ultimate performance space for guests to be amazed as they watch helicopters and motorcycles appear out of nowhere.
Just 1.5 miles from the original Tristan Crist Magic Theatre, the new venue at 100 N. Edwards Boulevard offers a modern industrial vibe with high-tech lighting, sound and video wall systems. Now serving beer and wine, adult guests enjoy Wisconsin brewed Spotted Cow beer and Shark Tank featured wine Copa Di Vino with concessions for all in the larger lobby before the show. After making their way down a hallway to the main theatre doors, guests are immersed in the world of magic and illusion as Tristan presents large-scale acts just steps away from their seats.
The new show opens with Tristan appearing out of nowhere. Then he quickly gets to work dividing his assistant in halves, creating visual illusions with shadows, making objects levitate and a motorcycle appear on stage in two seconds from impossible conditions. You won’t believe your eyes! Audience members are invited to participate throughout the performance with several given stage time for extra magical fun. The modern illusion experience is topped off with Tristan’s quick wit and charming smile that entertains and amuses young and old alike creating the perfect entertainment experience for the entire family.
“The new Tristan Crist Theatre represents what I have spent my life working toward,” said Tristan Crist. “After 1,000 shows at our original Lake Geneva venue, we took all that made us successful to create what I truly believe is a performance space that offers the best of everything for guests to enjoy magic themed entertainment.”
The new Tristan Crist Theatre was built on a two-acre plot of land across from the Lake Geneva Walmart and behind the Aldi. Open year round, the 100 N. Edwards Boulevard location is easily accessible from the area’s major resorts and downtown. Free onsite parking and quick access to Highway 50 are also a plus of the new location.
Tristan Crist moved to Lake Geneva in late 2015 to open the original Tristan Crist Magic Theatre in a small downtown commercial storefront. The concept was to create an intimate venue designed to present large illusions up-close and personal. The idea of a permanent magic theatre left locals wondering if the new business would survive in the quaint tourist town. Almost like magic, the business thrived within the first few months of shows as buzz about a helicopter appearing on stage in the small 50 seat venue spread throughout the Midwest. Fast forward three and a half years and the magician and self-made entrepreneur has become a local fixture in Lake Geneva.
