- Magicopolis is the place to experience mystery, grand-scale illusions and awe-inspiring magic. You'll see people dissolve in one place and reappear somewhere else and someone can read your thoughts. Objects move and change guided by the power of the mind. Reality is in the eyes of the beholder. In the lobby, visitors encounter the hand and footprints of magicians Penn & Teller, who helped inaugurate this theater of illusion back in 1998. This is the home of the legendary stained glass windows created 30 years ago for Merlin McFly's bar, representing posters of classic magicians like Houdini, Thurston, Kellar, Alexander and Blackstone. Humans float in mid-air and octopuses appear from nowhere. An attempt is made to escape from locks, chains and handcuffs just in time to avoid the free fall of 28 sharpened steel spikes. Again and again you are witness to impossible happenings. Sometimes you even become part of one.
