I just got Strat-osphere and am finishing it. Really difficult to think of patter and presentation for this effect. I like the effect but can't think of anything. The only thing I can think oif is a monte-type game with the audience, "Where is the red ball?"

At the end put ball in box, ask where is the ball now (in the box?), then vanish it and so, NOO, it was in the tube the whoole time. What do you guys think?

Depending on your audience, you may want to use it as a traffic light, and ask the kids (assuming you are working for kids) what order the colors are in.

You may also switch the balls for fake apples (red, yellow, and green) and do a Snow White type of story line.

For adults, you might try a "nonsense" explanation of how difficult it is to split the "atom" (the red ball) because it never stays in one place, as the other electrons fly around it.

Or how about a genetic code type of routine, with the red "gene" always getting out of order?

These are just some ideas off the top of my head (with the exception of the first one, which is fairly standard).

I feel your pain. This is a toughie. I finally settled on the idea that this was something they use to teach traffic safetly rules to clowns (you know, someone has to drive those little cars) get the crowd responding properly to each color. Green is "Go" and Yellow is "Slow Down". When they shout that, you do slow down, as if they're not getting it. Finally, when they all yell "Stop", you do.

I do the Stratosphere as a gospel routine. If you are interested, PM me.

That is excellent! Very simple and an attention getter.
