A little while ago I started a thread asking about what would be the best levitation for stage, and "wild levitation" was one of the effects mentioned and the one I bought; but anyone who has it knows that you can not do wild levitation on a stage with the audience sitting down below you.

With that said can someone point me in the right direction of a levitation that would really work on a raised stage, taking in consideration my wild levitation problem. (minimal set-up please)

Oh, and can some kind sole tell me if i-levitation is the same as wild?

An awsome stage levitation is the Asrah Levitation.

get " Touching Sky " by Andrew Mayne. Apparently there's some self levitation in that booklet.

I've heard that, that book is a pretty could value for what you get but not too great over all. I need/want a good impromtu levitation. I'm going to be doing it in the middle of a dance sequence (you got served style; if you've seen it you have to know what i'm talking about).

I'm not sure of the name, but there is a stage lvitation out there that is impromptu and is supposed to allow the magician to levitate Blaine style, with no covering like in wild, and even spin in mid air! Seems a little fishy, but overall a good buy. I've seen it for about $100. Use a google search to find it. Sorry about the name. :oops:

King Rising far enough from the audience **might** work. However, you will have major angle problems with either version (Balducci or King).

Touching Sky is a good read and makes you think outside of the box. However, there are only two stage levitations and one requires an assistant to help and the other one has to be partially covered.

Unfortunately the Elevator's only angle problem is when the spectators are below you. This effect will not work well on a raised stage.
