The room with a secret
Room X is a great way to offer something unique when hosting party.
A private room (or area) is allocated as “Room X”.
Throughout the event small groups of guests are invited to enter Room X and discover it's secret.
The guests are not told what they will find in The Room. This builds excitement, anticipation and curiosity and creates a buzz and a talking point.
If your party has a smaller number of guests (e.g. twenty or thirty guests) that does not constitute having a magician mix and mingle, this concept works exceptionally well. Of course even with larger guest numbers it also works brilliantly.
Inside Room X...
The client can either pick groups of people throughout the event, or even give a ticket/slip of paper with their allocated time to enter.
A small group of guests enter Room X and discover a magician waiting for them inside.
The guests then then receive an intimate close up magic show (typically 15-20 minutes).
The show would be an more extended set than what would usually be performed during close-up walk-around magic.
The magic is performed in a perfect setting, free from interruptions, noise and distraction. This lends itself to a more intense and exciting experience for the spectators.
The wonderful bonus is that due to the controlled conditions and lack of interruptions, the act can contain magic effects that would not normally be ideal to perform in a strolling situation... Inside Room X they will experience some absolutely mind bending magic and mind reading.
The first rule of Room X is: We don't talk about the Room X.
After the show the guests are asked to keep the secret of Room X and not tell anyone about what they found inside the room. It’s great fun and creates a buzz and surprise for the rest of the guests.
