I am looking for plans on the Victoria Magnet (I think that is the name of the illusion)
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanx!

Are you talking about the Georgia Magnet?

Hi Richard,

It is the routine where the audience members on stage are unable to move the magician or assistant from their place.
I was not sure of the name so it could very well be the Georgia Magnet you mention.
Can you tell me anything about this ?
Thanx!

Magical Greetz,
Peter Smile

It is indeed the Georgia Magnet. I believe Bart Whaley wrote a book on it. I remember seeing the work on it someplace but I can't remember where is right now. It was also sometimes called Resisto.

Thanx Richard!
With this new name I found on the Café that Brian Gillis & Sisupahn use it in their show.
I've e-mailed them and now hope for a reaction Smile

I Richard,

Just got mail from Mr. Gillis,
The Georgia Magnet is the trick with shifting your weight.
I learned that in my Judo-years (loooong ago)

The thing I am looking for is where the assistant cant be pulled up by audience members.
Maybe you know about this one?

Magical Greetz,
Peter Smile

It is the same thing. It is just a matter of presentation.
