The King Rising is available as a download at http://www.ellusionist.com, for I believe $17.00. For me to just explain it would of course violate the agreement I made when I bought it.

It has its own angle issues, but at the right time, for the right people, and with sufficient practice. . .it's good.

I was going to order the king rising and Ninja 1. But I just figured out the King Rising in school and figured out most of the stuff on Ninja 1. I guess I should just order Ninja 2 instead. I was kind of dissapointed because it's so hard to pull off the king rising. Plus I don't usually wear the right stuff if you know what i mean. I hope I'm not making a big mistake by buying N-2: Weapons... What does everyone else think?

What I think is that it's important to buy a licensed copy of a trick developed by someone else, even if you deduce the method yourself. You wouldn't have spent the time trying to figure it out if it didn't hold value for you, and I think it's important to compensate the creator for developing something you consider valuable enough to want.

Just my opinion... if you want to perform King Rising, you ought to buy the manuscript even if you figured it out based on watching a performance.

Best,
Joe

I don't think you honestly know the method. I thought I did, so I bit the bullet and bought it. It was completely diffrent. Also, it is very wrong to perform an effect when you have not bought the license to perform it.

Well, it's just like any other trick, I found out most of the tricks I know by experimenting. I found out stuff like the second deal, false shuffle, double lift, and many other tricks too. I prefer learning tricks by using my own mind. I only buy them as a last resort. (or if I just can't wait any longer) Smile

I feel that I acomplished something by figuring out a new trick, not by just buying something. I admit, I do buy magic, but I feel beter if I just find out the trick myself. I'm sure most of the people here didn't buy all the tricks they wanted to know, have seen or heard of. I know what all of you are saying, I know the point you're making, but I just like dong the tricks I know by figuring them out.

I'm almost sure that I don't know the exact King Rising, but it produces the same effect. From what I've heard of people asking for help with the King Rising, even though they don't reveal the trick, from what I know, it all comes together. Just like the Balducci, many poeple don't buy it to perform it. Many people do, but a lot don't either.

I would love to know if anybody can help me! I know the levitation it shows David Blaine do is a camera trick but I would like to know what real levitation looks the most like that (I don't mean exact even if it is way off looking just the closet)! Smile

Nitrous,

You don't see the point. It is very unethical. I figured out Brent Braun's Torched and Restored the first time I saw it, but I bought it. The baladucci was created numerous years ago and is not sold as a trick by itself. Same with the double lift. PM me with your guess though. I would like to see your accuracy.

Ok, I guess I'll try and buy it if I'm WAY off

All this talk about King Rising. I just purchased Zero Gravity and am currently waiting for it to arrive. Did I make a wrong choice?

Wait a second... (except in cases of absolute junk) every illusion will have its good points and bad points. What's the advantage to the King Rising over the Balducci? Or vice versa?

Link, you are partially right, but the rest is the Balducci levitation. I suggest everyone figure out how to do it.

I think from the ad for King Rising that it is a whole new idea and people can see both feet clearly off the ground. Yes, it is harder than the Balducci levitation, but I think it looks much better. Also, Balducci is common knowledge now. I don't know why, but every spec knows how it's done.

I personally think the King Rising isn't very effective because it has such restrictive angles... but that's just my insight.

Is Fearson's levitation the one with the milk crate? It sure looked good to me on the demo. Does anyone have it, and if so, how do you like it overall? Smile

Is the levitation M.U.S.L.E. any good? Is it worth $85?

Yes, it is angle restrictive. More than the Balducci. But, it an excellent levitation. It blows the Balducci, Andruzzi's Ascending, Fearson's Fabulous, and Zero Gravity out of the water. Easily. Also it beats any other Ellusions with or without gimmicks. In my opinion, The Kings Rising is the best levitation ever.

If anyone wants to know how it is done,
go to http://www.ellusionist.com
click on Kings Rising and bust out your credit card, and be prepared to pay the $17 for the secret.

I bought the Ferson levation last year. It requires a lot of work to set up and isn't ideal for close-up. Where can I go to find the Raven's flight levation? Can the King's Rising levation be done surrounded? I perform at a local skating rink would this levation be suitable?

I do the Balducci, King's Rising, and the Fearson's levitation using the milk crate. Personally, I like King's Rising the best. I don't find the angles any more difficult that the Balducci...in both cases you must be sure of your angle though. Buying King's Rising from the website allows you access to a special King's Rising Forum, where people discuss all kinds of ideas that go even beyond what Corey designed. It is a clean levitation with no gimmicks and it can be performed without a jacket.

The Fearson's Box is a different kind of levitation that is done more for laughs. I have done it in my living room with success.
