Jimmy just sent me a note today telling me that my unit has been shipped. I can't wait to share what I think about it, and more, what my audience does.

I knew that the Magellan Levitation had reached credible miracle status when Lou ordered one. Lou is a true master of levitation. Thanks for making the move, your enthusiasm for the project is special and appreciated!

Finally, I used it on my 2 shows today. I was at first hesitant to use it but I said to myself, when? Besides, I was eager to know how my audience felt about it. And I did rehearse this for 3 days.

I performed this in the middle part of my 1 hour show. This was sort of an opening act before I performed my levitation illusion with a volunteer.

The first show today came out perfect, the audience started applauding when I started floating upward, then when I revealed my whole body, I heard a few screams . . . from the adults who stood up in disbelief. The second show in another venue came up with the same results. Not bad on my 1st day using it.
And the next best thing is that my 3 magic assistants approve of it. Who is a better judge than them.

I am happy I got this. I did make some minor modifications with the cloth which I will share to Jimmy. I also did my own version of the floating movements which I haven't seen anyone do before. I will post my video on youtube soon.

All I can say now is: Jimmy, stop selling this!

Thanks for the nice video link, Lou, you picked up on the nuances really quick...

I'm thrilled that someone who has owned almost every kind of suspension and illusion is having so much fun and success with this, and seeing such great responses out of the gate!

By the way, your show package is quite impressive! I've never seen such a well produced show, over here in the states at least. I'm flattered that you would make my work a part of your production, thanks Lou...

Lou,
I am glad that you had a great reaction using this levitation! It is ALWAYS good to hear people scream during an illusion. LOL


The first time that I used it, I was a little concerned that it may not play as I hoped, but it got a real good respose from the people. I really like the Magellan and I am glad that I have it!

I got to the point that I didn't like hauling around my BIG heavy levitation and the Magellan fits the bill for something small that plays REALLY BIG!




Best

Ray,
You and Scott were part of my influence on this. And with over 10,000 views on this topic, how could one go wrong?
Now, I am setting aside my Barstool Levitation and replacing it with this. My assistants love it.

I checked out the magellan levitation web site and I was intrigued by this statement:

"Now, the Magellan Master Levitation can be performed alone, solo, OR as
a two person effect similar to the original Magellan Witch, but much more
compact, portable, deceptive and practical!"

Can anyone comment on the two person effect or post a video. I do some shows with my daughters and there just seems to be such an emotional hook about a father levitating his daughter. My girls are teenagres now so they have some physical abilities in order to do illusions.

Thanks.

I really like the Duo version. It seems like a great benefit to be able to do it both ways!

My daughter who has worked with me in shows since she was 7 years old, is now nearly 16 and loves performing the Magellan with me. The bad part is I think she is better at it, so she is the one levitating and the star. I am over 6 foot tall and she is just over 5 foot, so it looks pretty impressive when she slowly rises to be taller than I am.

Have fun your assistants will love this and may even steal the show!!!

P.S. I also find it much easier to perform with two people than by yourself.

I'd really be thrilled to see what you guys have done with the duo concept!

Please get some video, Bob... You're the pioneer of the real world duo concept, since I only do it alone. Seeing it is believing!

Thanks for the nice words,

Jimmy

Lou, I'm glad it's going so well for you. We haven't spoken since you received it so this post is the first time I'd heard how it was going. Awesome. And it's truly funny that your barstool is going in the closet for a while!

I have received similar scream reactions from audiences as well. It turns a levitation into shock magic, to an extent.

Hi Scott,
Very well said. I am now dreaming of different presentations for this right now. It is also a fun prop to perform with. Gosh, I now have a bruise on my left lower front leg due to the kick drops, LOL.

Have any of you ever tried this with a thicker cloth? I seem to have problems using a thicker cloth during the feet reveal part. I need to pull the cloth harder because it sticks to my shoes. Anyway, I'm just experimenting it with a thicker cloth. The one provided works fine.

Sometimes the cloth hangs on my left toe! I then have to shake it (I am talking about the cloth Smile) to make it fall away from my shoe.

I am still trying to come up with a set of steps or something to house the gimmick so that I can walk up the steps with the cloth hanging over one arm and then float above the steps. This way people will be able to view the levitation better because I will be higher off the floor. I am trying to start and end clean.

Hello everyone,

I only have one left in stock, and, due to high oil prices, my welders are working on oilfield tools, and have put Magellan orders on the back burner. When they do make a batch, I don't know how many will be built. I will be sending to those on the waiting list, first purchased first served.

Thanks, and I will update as soon as more are available.

-Maybe don't make any more, keep it exclusive for your current fan base.
-Or make them just one unit at a time to keep them unique.
-Or exactly double your price for an "authentic unit" and let people get hurt who by the ripoffs.
All we owner would just love one of those options.
