For $125 to $200 per person, you got an experience of large stage illusions, a gourmet dinner, close-up magic, underground tunnels, an invisible pianist, and dancing fire. When you went to Caesars Magical Empire, it was a 3 hour event. So you definitely got your money’s worth.

The interior of the entire complex was decorated in a combination of pseudo cave-and-classic architecture, with faux rock-work and stone, passageways and real marble floors. It closed on November 30, 2002, after which the structure was razed to make room for a large concert hall created for singer Celine Dion.
