If you are going to a Harlem Globetrotters game, you will want to check out the Magic Pass. This gives you the option to meet the players before the game and even do a few tricks with them. There is an extra fee for this and you must have a ticket to the game to attend as well. On Jan. 28, we attended a game in Enid, Okla. and got to experience the Magic Pass. Make sure you check out their tour dates to see them on your vacation or in an area near you.
The cost for the Magic Pass here was $15 per person. This gives you an unique opportunity to get on the court with the players before the game ever starts. The kids were really excited about this when we showed up, but they ended up being a bit overwhelmed by how many people were there. That didn't ruin the fun though!
Fans got the chance to do three different things during the Magic Pass, but it was actually set up into six stations so it moved fast. You had to wait in line but they were very short. They had two players signing autographs and taking pictures in front of a green screen. You could go online and buy their pictures when you got home after the game. My oldest daughter got an autograph from Tea Time, the only female player, and she thought that was really cool!
The other two stations were getting to shoot layups and being able to spin a basketball on your finger. Every station had a member of the Harlem Globetrotters at it to help you out. They were able to take pictures with you, but these players were not allowed to give out autographs until after the game.
Over all the Magic Pass was a good experience. We were hoping for a few less people so it would be more hands on, but the kids still enjoyed the experience and loved getting to spin the basketball on their fingers. It was a great start to the night at the Harlem Globetrotters game.
