I do a manipulation act. I have had several card castles, but all of them were to small (short), ranging from about 1-1.5 feet. That will not make a big enough impact from the back of a large room/stage. I have read several card castle posts her on the Café. Several of you have talked about card castles up to 5 feet tall. Where can I purchase one. I have had horrible luck building them and I lack the time, space, or patience to build one ( I live in a dorm room about the size of most of your bathrooms...).
Thanks
Brian
P.S. I do NOT want Peter Marvey's castle either!

If you can't find the right castle, a card fountain would be a good way to go!

I can't remember where I got my card castle but it is bigger than 1.5 feet!

Having them custom made would certainly cost you a lot.

Thanks guys. I am certainly considering the idea of a custom made castle...is Owens the only manufacturer?
Thanks
Brian

P.S. What's a card fountain?

I don't think Owen is the only manufacturer. If you do a search on the Café for card castles you may be able to get a few makers. Do you have a budget for this card castle?

In terms of a budget, I do not know. I have quite a bit of money I am willing to devote to get a goo piece of apparatus, in the 4 digit range, if required (although I don't know why it would...). This apparatus is important to me. Thanks for the help.

PM me Brian and tell me what exactly you want and how you want the card castle to fit into your act. I may be able to give you a few tips I cannot expose in a public forum.

A card fountain is a machine that shoots about a deck and a half of cards about 5.5-6 feet in the air.

I own one. It is one of my greatest investment.

I've seen a 4/5 foot jumbo card castle ( kinda like the one seen in Peter MArvey's act) here in Singapore. You can try looking for the user Redefine. He has it and it looks great.

Thanks all. PM'd redefine and waiting for a response. Also, is there a link for a card fountain, a video, or even a store where I could purchase one.
Thanks again

Losander.com

go to his product page and look around for one. I think there is one on there.

Now I must warn you they do have some price to them.

But they are worth every penny.

Sorry,

Here is an actual link.

Its not his. I just think he has the rights to sell one.

It was also the first link that came to mind.

Thanks, Brandon. He is probably representing someone else's item at his website. But which one is he representing?

It's made by Hey Presto.

Thanks, Brandon. I wonder why Losander would represent Hey Presto's card fountain? Must be something that is really different from others. Is it the mechanism?

I think it is just because it is the best card fountain out now that contento has stopped making his.

It looks close to a contento since I own one.

I just know how he only carries quality props, and that is definatley one.

Thanks, Brandon. Now I can get my hands on a good one ever since contento has stopped making them.
