Of Magic and Winter Wonderland


Ever since I watched The Prestige, I have been fascinated with the behind the scene workings of a magic show. I mean, for me, the curiosity of wanting to know how the magicians did their trick far outweighed the "magic" of the show. So I was reasonably excited when I was invited up to Genting Highlands for Peter Marvey's Magician Without Limits show. Before I go any further, I just want to thank Resorts World Genting for the chance to attend and try to figure out how magicians do their thing. 

I went into the show fully hoping to catch Peter Marvey on wires, or something that wouldn't blow my mind. I was looking for The Prestige, the hook of his show, the trick behind his magic. My scepticism was met with one of the most insane magic shows I have ever watched. I forgot all about disproving the magic as I was drawn into tricks where Peter Marvey freaking separated himself into half...

...lit sharpened spears on fire and launched himself into the box where the spears would freaking go right through him...

...and somehow swap places within seconds with his hot assistant/dancer even though he was wrapped up in chains.

And that wasn't even the kicker. The kicker was the trick called DreamFlying, which is literally what it means. Peter Marvey can levitate people, objects and himself. I was looking for the wires throughout this entire segment, but when I couldn't find any, I just settled back and just marvelled at the man flying around the stage.

I'll admit one thing. I was blown away.

Trust me on this, you'll need to prepare yourself for the mindblowing tricks that you won't be able to understand/comprehend until the next morning. Believe me, I've been through that. If you want to experience the magic for yourself, just head to this link for all the information you may need: http://www.rwgenting.com/en/entertainment/2014/petermarvey/index.htm.

After spending the whole night trying to figure out the trick behind the magic, the next morning's activity allowed for my overheated brain to finally cool down. Literally, because it was -6 degrees in SnowWorld Genting, where we would be shown the brand new The Story of ALLICE (pronounced ALL ICE or Alice because logic).

Since this was my second time in SnowWorld, I'm not going to focus so much on describing it. You can read about my last trip to SnowWorld here: http://leonhart90.blogspot.com/2013/02/white-snowy-world-at-genting-highlands.html. And yes, the place still looks like this.

Of course, because of the Story of ALLICE theme, there were several changes made to the interior from the last time I was there. For one, there were a lot more Alice in Wonderland inspired ice sculptures like the one here, which is supposed to depict...a variety of household items, I suppose.

But if you're in luck, you can also spot the main characters of the Story of ALLICE, including the titular Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and Bugs Bunny. I mean, the rabbit that looks ridiculously like the baby toon version of Bugs Bunny. They'll be braving the cold and just wandering around SnowWorld for your chance to interact with them.

 Here they all are enjoying a nice cup of ice. Literally. There's nothing here except ice. 

And before I end this post, I present to you, Punny 2-of-Hearts.
