Houdini's Vanishing Elephant

Houdini's Vanishing Elephant

Product ID: 3733

Telling the true story of when the famous Houdini vanished an elephant in the middle of a circus ring!

You show a large A4 sized laminated picture of Harry Houdini himself, as your entertaining tail unfolds you show that on the back of the picture is a cartoon elephant locked in a cage, you explain that an assistant led the real elephant into a cage that was rolled in to the circus ring by two more assistants.

You say that the elephant and cage were concealed behind a screen for a moment, Houdini said a magic word then when the screen was lifted the elephant had vanished and Houdini stood there all alone! During the above you have placed the caged elephant into a card holder where the back of the card can be seen at all times, say your magic word and you then show the picture again but only Houdini can be seen with no sign of the elephant.

Continuing, you explain that the story goes it then took six assistants to wheel off the empty cage. But you claim this theory was incorrect and only you know the true secret of what happened to the elephant that memorable evening.

Your audience however suspect that the elephant in the cage is simply on the back of the Houdini picture and you re-enforce this by being obviously reluctant to reveal the opposite side but after a little audience persuasion you show that the elephant has indeed completely vanished leaving just the empty cage, to everyone’s complete and utter astonishment!

Eventually, you decide to take your audience into your confidence and uncover the cut-out elephant hiding in some impossible place of your own choosing, producing him from, for example, your inside jacket pocket, behind a curtain or cushion in the room, from some other magical apparatus that you own or wherever you imagination takes you for your unexpected climax!

This is a jumbo A4 sized mini-illusion suitable for both children and adults’ shows, also ideal for when you are entertaining senior citizens. Easy to do.
