MAGICAL JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH
Journey to the center of the earth where young geologists, zoologists and paleontologists will be needed to solve the mystery of what is at the center of the Earth. Could it be a chewy nougat (or nugget)? Lots of fun magic and loads of audience participation and involvement. Children will see a real fossil and learn from a not-so-real dinosaur. They also will learn about the three basic types of rock: Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic. Inspector Magic, in “real life” is a Professional Engineer with a geo-technical engineering company. He is an expert on the subject, which is presented in a fun learning atmosphere, After the show, the children will be invited to see up-close and hands-on the different types of rock specimens, gems and fossils. Children are encouraged to consider rock collecting and paleontology as a life-long hobby.
Who is Inspector Magic? A professional magician for over 25 years from Monument, Colorado. He was the National President of the Society of American Magicians, an organization that once had Harry Houdini as their National President (1917-1926). He has performed his hilarious shows and instructed other magicians in Florida, Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Michigan, Kansas, Colorado, Texas, Arizona, California and Oregon. He is currently in charge of the magician’s convention held every summer, where this past year, over 1,300 magicians from all over the world watched, learned and even competed in the magic Olympics.
Immediately following Inspector Magic will be a costume contest and parade – Prizes will be given for the Best Dinosaur Costume, the Scariest Costume, the Funniest Costume and the Most Creative Costume. Prizes are $25.00 gift cards to Prehistoric Paradise gift shop.
