I'm looking for information on doing an escape from a 55 gallon drum filled with water. I understand Mark Tripp posted some info about it but I have not been able to find it. Can someone point me in the right direction on where I can find some info. I would like to add it to some outdoor performances this summer. Many thanks!

Have you checked out Mark Cannon's 55 Gallon Drum escape?

You can find Mark’s discussion and instructions for building his oil drum escape at:

Let me say I have built two of these beasts and made a slight modification (using magnets instead of double back tape - which works by the way). The first I made (right from Mark’s description and without modification) is still being used by one of my kids as he tours down south. The second one (with modification) I use.

It cost me less than $200.00 for the both. By the way, the second one uses a plastic drum not a steel one (cheaper and easier to truck).


You might also want to read my discussion of the Milk Can for some of the logistical problems and issues with this kind of prop. It’s at:

Harry, thanks so much for taking the time to help! I will be sure to check out your thread on trouping it. I am also a radio announcer and hope to get some media coverage with some of the tv stations we have built a relationship with.

Joe, thanks also for reminding me of the Cannon escape!
