The Water Coffin Illusion

by Jim Gerrish


A set of three trunks are nested together, locked, and hauled up into the air. A clear plastic (or glass) box is then filled with water from buckets. The illusionist enters in a swim suit, is handcuffed, and locked into the water-filled box. A curtain is drawn around the box and a timer begins to count down the elapsed time. After everyone has tried to hold his or her breath as long as he or she is able, the curtain is whipped off the clear box. It is empty. The nested trunks are then lowered to the stage, unlocked and un-nested. The illusionist is found, still dripping wet, in the innermost trunk. So easy and safe even a Wiz Kid can do it!
