Looking for information on a assistant revenge escape type illusion.... But it uses hoops that are attached to a pole and assembled around the assistant. The hoops start at the assistants feet and every 9-10 inches another hoop surrounds the assistant. The magician after assembling the hoops lifts a curtain around assistant and after a few seconds steps a few feet away while holding the curtain high.... Then lowers the curtain to reveal the a assistant has escaped from the hoop cage. What is the name if this escape and where are either plans or information about this escape??

It is not an escape so much as an illusion.

Here is one version (performance leaves a lot to be desired):

and another (a tad better performance):

The only one I have found for sale is in China.

As far as I know it was always called the ring illusion.
I think abbotts sells one.
