Brunswick, NY- Magic, music and mayhem will be at the center ring of this year’s Field of Horrors halloween attraction at Capital Combat Zone.
This year’s entertainment has been ramped up to include Magical John’s three feature shows: Family Fun Comedy Magic, Stunt and Danger Variety Spectacular, and Guts, Gore, & Ghost Stories along-side Dark Hollow Road Fire Performers
Magical John of Rochester NY will be performing his three unique shows to appeal to every age group. His Family Fun Comedy Magic Show will bring the audience right on stage to help perform the magic. The Stunt and Danger Variety Spectacular is a perfect example of what you should not try at home with bullwhip tricks, knife juggling, and a death-defying escape that will have you holding your breathe. Guts, Gore and Ghost Stories is not for the weak of stomach or faint of heart. Combining classic seance and spook show techniques with special effects and illusions of dismemberment straight out of a horror movie, you’ll be covering your eyes but peeking through your fingers to see what happens next.
For “Magical John” Wolfson, the show began In 1995 at the age of six, when he commandeered his older sister’s magic kit and began learning. It wasn’t long before he was performing wherever he could find an audience. John continued to study the art of magic under local professionals and amateurs. In 2010 he attended the McBride Magic and Mystery School in Las Vegas, studying under renowned magicians Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger, Lance Burton and Mac King. “I have the greatest job I could ever want. I get to bring smiles and laughter to people everywhere I go” Said Wolfson.
Having commanded hundreds of audiences across New York State and in 6 countries, in 2011 Magical John was elected the youngest president of the Syracuse chapter of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
The entertainment isn’t all that’s new this year. The event organizers have doubled the number of haunted houses in addition to their haunted hayride. “It’s not your typical hayride, either,” Owner David Mulinio said. “We’ve had friends say it’s an experience.” Last year’s event drew 12,000 guests over 5 weekends. This year with the expanded attractions, entertainment, and vendors, the event hopes to have up to 20,000 people coming to be spooked and bemused over 6 weekends.
