Posted this a few weeks ago at the Ballooning section but only got 2 short comments. I am thinking how I can add this in my show as a magic trick, illusion or routine. Any suggestions or ideas?

My kids 6 and 8 loved how that looked. What about doing that on a "special platform" and then add some flashing lights and then lift a blanket up and do an appearance of an assistant in the middle of the balloons?

Ha, it looks really fascinating, amusing Lou. It's colourful and it moves so kids are going to love it!

I was wondering though if it is dependant on being in an enclosed space and what affect that was having on the airflow? Would 'blow away' in a bigger area? or does the circle redirect virtually all the motion back on itself sufficient to hold it in position?

Looks great. Smile

Use it, if you can around a suspension or floating illusion like Super-X or flying carpet. Would look great spinning around the floating person., don't have to use a hoop.

The balloon circle remains in the same position even in a bigger area as long as there is no other wind source to blow it away. Otherwise, a piece of invisible thread can hold them. I am planning to be able to rotate the balloon wheel from left to right and vice versa via remote control soon. And maybe use 2 balloon wheels to fill up the stage.

I plan to start with the Ryota Floating Balloon, then continue with my Floating Balloon Wheel. Still thinking of other effects to do with them. And yes, it is hypnotic to both adults and kids.

My idea would be to throughout the show randomly produce balloons from various tricks or routines, At the end of the show the balloons could all rotate, as you dive through them they all pop and you disappear......

Finally tested my rotating balloons in a show last Saturday, March 11. It works well. I did a quick costume change when I crossed in front of the balloon circle. I am planning to increase the speed of the rotation.
