 TIGER CAGE
WALTER SHEPPARD

This is a Walter Sheppard Lady to Lion cage. If you knew Walt, you know the quality of his work. Unlike the “Big” cages out there, this cage measures 39” top to bottom, 49” left to right and 55” front to back. It is on steel pipe legs with casters that measure about 26” high. That makes the total height of the cage under 6 feet tall. So when you produce your 350 lb tiger it fills the cage. Unlike those bigger cages that make the same tiger look like a house cat. Cage is made of aluminum except the corners that are reinforced by steel for a strong and secure attachment of legs. Trap release is a smooth and easy push button. Comes with a brilliant red cloth and vanishing stairs that roll smoothly under the cage. Cage is located in Chicago, IL. Willing to drive it to you or meet in the middle for reimbursement
of gas money.

 DOUBLE POLE LEVITATION BED
EDF

(Entertainment Design & Fabrication)

A beautiful ornate bed is seen on stage. The magician and assistant sit on the bed ( one on each side ) with legs crossed. They float up ( pole Levi style ) then they float out in front of the Poles
( Pendragon Style ). Two independent controllers control each persons levitating movements. Each person can levitate all the way up past the top bannister poles. Also each performer can levitate simultaneously independent at any height from the other performer. The Harnesses come up from the bed and rise up to each performer and after the illusion they retract back into the bed. This is the only Pole levitation in existence with that upgrade. The headboard and the footboard are removable so it could look more like an Ultra Lounge Style bed. Both pole mechanisms are engineered to hold 225 lbs ! The bed is primed
and can be painted any color. The bed can be
art directed in many different ways.

 DEATH CRANE
DAVID MENDOZA SHOW FX

The illusion is a modular crane that can be extended from 20 feet to 30 feet and at the full extension of 40 feet in length. The Illusion is made out of aluminum and is very light weight considering it's size . The effect is the Magician is shackled in a kneeling position at the base of the crane with his arms locked and shackled to the eye bolts on both sides. Then assistants cover the performer with a cloth while his hands shackled are still visible. The crane is turned on and the blades make there decent to the performer. When the blades are half way down the crane to the performer , the cloth is lifted and he is still there. Then they start to spin and turn out of control. Finally the blades cut through the cloth and the performer vanishes and reappears in the back of the house. The crane is a technological marvel with a full control console and an isolated safety shut off. The crane is able to lift and lower remotely by the console. The illusion comes apart and packs virtually flat for shipping.

Each state has a number. Magician adds the numbers on calculator. Chest is opened by spectators and they think number will add to change. But in fact all four quarters are match to the states. Magician never touches the chest and no extra assistants are needed. Can also be done where 4 quarters go in box and locked when opened the four quarters match. Beautifully made in high quality craftmanship. Very few of these exist. Dart board not shown is 2 feet by 3 feet.

 WALKING THROUGH A FAN
CREEATIONS LAS VEGAS

This Walking Through a Fan illusion is a large, impressive prop and illusion for your Halloween show. Originally built for and performed by Dan Sperry by Creeations in Las Vegas, NV. It works smoothly and is very safe, even though it looks frightening. This can be performed by just two people. There are some issues with the prop due to an overzealous forklift operator during shipping.
I will describe before purchase. Nothing that affects the performance of the prop. There is no case for the prop.
Prop shows wear and may need some refurbising. Video of prop in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_VIM_oMzlw
