Where do I pick up my tickets?

Our box office. COVID-19 update: All ticket sales must be placed online or over the phone with a MC/VISA. When you arrive at the box office prior to the show, you will receive your seat assignment and be seated by an usher one party at a time. For your convenience, tickets (whether purchased online or by phone) are held at the Rick Wilcox Theater Box Office under the last name of the person who paid for the tickets. Please present photo ID when picking up tickets. Tickets can be picked up any time the Box Office is open. The Box Office and lobby is open for questions and seating at least 1 hour prior to scheduled showtimes.

Where’s my ticket order receipt?

When your order transaction is complete you will see the “Order Received” page that confirms your order with an order number (like “RW1234”) and the details of your purchase. There is also a “Print Order Confirmation” button that you can click to print a copy for your records (but please note, it is not necessary to print this page for picking up tickets). When you arrive at the box office just provide your last name and photo ID to pick up your tickets.

How do I know where I will be seated?

Tickets are assigned based on when we receive your order. You are assigned the best seats available in the seating section you selected ($50 or $40 sections), moving seats during the show is not allowed. COVID-19 update: All parties will be separated by 3 empty seats, no moving is allowed from assigned seats, and seating will be limited to maximum allowed by local and state guidelines.

How long is the show?

The Grand Illusion show is approximately 90 minutes (including an intermission) or approximately 70 minutes without an intermission. This outstanding magic, comedy and illusion show can run shorter or longer based upon audience participation and “live-show surprises”! Our other show option that is occasionally scheduled in the fall is the 60-minute Matinée Show. This show is 60-minutes of non-stop magic & comedy fun for the whole family!

Where is the Rick Wilcox Theater?

Right in the heart of Wisconsin Dells. The theater is located between Noah’s Ark and Mt. Olympus — 1/4 mile north of Noah’s Ark and 1/4 mile south of Mt. Olympus (view Google map). Address: Rick Wilcox Theater, 1670 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965.

No. We do not discount our ticket prices, but children 4 and under are admitted free on an adult’s lap.

When does seating begin?

30 minutes before the show. You will be able to take your seats a half hour before your scheduled show time.

“I want to be on stage!” OR “I DON’T want to be on stage”…

We cannot guarantee that someone will be on stage. Anyone who would like to be on stage should raise their hand when Rick asks for assistance during the show. He’ll choose enthusiastic volunteers who seem like they want to be on stage.

Are there wheelchair accessible seats? (About needs requests)

YES. We have accessible seating and there are no stairs at the Rick Wilcox Theater. Please make arrangements in advance so we can reserve the seating that best fits your needs. We want to accommodate your particular needs to ensure your experience magical. But we need your help! The more proactive you are, the better we are able to meet your needs. Many of our services take time to arrange — interpreters need to be hired, scripts secured and reviewed. The sooner you can alert us to your needs, the better. We recommend that you buy tickets in advance and let us know at that time what you’ll need. (Click here for more info…)

YES. We have parking in front of the theater as well as behind the theater. Handicapped accessible parking is located on the north side of our front lot.

Do I have to buy tickets in advance?

It’s recommended, but not required. Tickets can be purchased online months in advance for any show listed (see show list). Tickets can be also purchased by phone or at our Box Office, which is open on show days at least two hours before the scheduled show time.
