EVAH was fantastic. The kids loved the different face paint designs. The two face painters were patient and listened to each child's special request, despite having a line that seemed to be never-ending. They were very friendly, worked diligently and made sure all of the kids left with smiles. Couldn't ask for more!!!

This was my first experience hiring entertainment for my children's birthday party, and Justin was extremely helpful and attentive to my wishes and concerns! He did an amazing job with the kids, providing a tight wire activity, juggling, and balloon animals! He is very personable and really made the party special. I will most definitely be hiring him again for future events. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience working with Mystery Circus Arts!

I highly recommend Olga. She did an amazing job on my daughter first birthday party. She painted all the kids faces including my baby on a record time (I had more than 30 kids). Olga is a very professional artist, her designs were so detailed and cute. I would definitely hire her for my next party.

Jim, thank you so much for a great magic show this weekend, it made the party! My daughter and all her Friends loved it!!! I was worried that some of the children would be too young but I couldn't believe that you held their attention for an hour. Also it was very kind of you to spend extra time with a few of the children after the show, their parents appreciated it very much. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great children's entertainer to use you. Thanks again!

Bill Diamond was great!! I hired him for my kids' birthday party which included approximately 35 children, ages 2-13, boys and girls. He was very interactive with the kids and held their attention the entire time. I really don't know what I would've done without him! The magic show was very entertaining for all guests, young and old. The balloon animals were fantastic, not you're average sword or hat. As a special surprise for the kids, he was also able to provide a bag cotton candy (my color choice) to each of the kids, which served as a nice alternative to goody bags. The children couldn't stop talking about him and trying to figure out his magic long after he left. Bill Diamond was professional, polite, punctual, fascinating to watch, and his price couldn't be beat. I would certainly recommend this wonderful magician and entertainer and hope to have him back again for another function in the future. Thanks for making my party a success!!

I hired Matt to perform at my daughter's birthday party. The kids loved the magic and the adults were rolling in laughter at the ventriloquist performance. The price was reasonable too and he arrived on time and had everything set up before the start of the party. I would definitely recommend Matt Cadabra!

I hired Niki for my daughter's Holy Communion Party. She was very professional and did a great job. All the kids....young, teen and adults enjoyed her work. Glitter tattoos were a big hit. She even did face designs that she did not have on her chart. A couple of kids asked their parents to hire her for their next party. I would hire her again.

I was planning a high school graduation party for my daughter and felt I needed some sort of entertainment that would appeal to everyone and make for a memorable occasion. One of my first ideas was to bring in a mobile photobooth to have people get pictures together. After researching this and thinking about it I stumbled onto the better idea of a caricature artist. My only experience was at amusement parks where I watched the artists work but never took the time or money to have one drawn. I found Emily Anthony on the net and corrosponded through E-mail. She was Awesome at the party! People who did not know each other began to talk and laugh among themselves. Watching her work and seeing the reactions from the people she drew when done was so much fun! It turned out to be a much better choice than a photobooth at less than half the price!

They responded quickly to my email. On the day of the event they were on time and pleasant. They kept my party organized - but most of all my group of 8 year old boys loved their show. Would recommend them for entertainment.

Had a surprise party for my wife's Masters program graduation. Hired Dan to entertain all the children, and that he did with great success. Dan was really great with the kids and they were thrilled with his awesome balloon creations. Prompt, courteous and a hit, I would hire Dan again and recommend him in a heartbeat.

We were absolutely thrilled to collaborate with My Dream Visits and Ironman for my sons fourth birthday party. Ironman arrived promptly on time and ready to entertain the day of our event. Despite the heat, Ironman did not complain once on one of the hottest days we have have experienced this season. They are locally owned and operated, and therefore much more trustworthy than other companies offering similar services. I highly recommend My Dream Visits.

Review JPZ There's many good things I could say about John, but it would be all the same. I also work in the entertainment business and he hit the spot sharp! HE IS GREAT! HE IS THE REAL DEAL! In my many years(15+) of being around fancy parties there's 2 Guys that impressed me. He is ONE! (the other guy even though is good, his lady manager is a hassle to deal with ) John has a great vibe and gives his 100%, which is commendable and I appreciated it more than anything. Very sharp mind and the improv jokes had us laughing with tears. I didn't want to leave a review for fear of making him too busy thus decreasing my chances of booking him again in the future, but it wouldn't be fair to him. Pay him whatever he's asking, you'll get more than what you paid for! He's priceless. Thanks and good Luck, John (aka RP)

I’ve worked with Mike Edwards for over 4 years and he has significantly improved the quality of our events. He always arrives early and can generate a lot of interest for our company. He produces quality work that leaves our guests more than satisfied. It has been a pleasure working with Mike Edwards.
