The Rising looks impossible. It looks like something that takes years to master, but thankfully it's not. Just any ordinary deck of cards is all you need and you'll have the most visual ending to an ambitious card routine period.

The Rising is also great as a stand alone piece of visual magic. A card is placed at the bottom of a deck and slowly melts through the deck without any funny moves. Like its taking an escalator ride to the top of the deck.

Looks impossible. Completely practical. The Rising will raise the bar on your card magic.

Nothing makes me happier than learning good impromptu card tricks. This is not only easy to do, using sleights you probably already know, but it's super visual, can be done anywhere anytime, and resets instantly.

This is a great closer for your ambitious card routine. I've seen some really great closers before but they've all required a gimmick of some sort. It's hard to believe from seeing it performed but it requires no gimmicks at all.

Video quality is good, thorough instruction including 2 cleanup methods. It's not too long, rambly, or full of filler B-roll. It's short, to the point, concise, and easy to follow.

Pros:
- No gimmicks at all
- Can be done with any deck
- Incredibly visual
- Resets instantly & no real prep required
- Fairly easy to learn and perform
- Inexpensive
- Clear, concise instruction

Cons:
- Angles. Not bad, but definitely something you'll have to be aware of.
- ... That's all i can think of.

Exaggerated Trailer ! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 16th, 2016
I'd have given higher rating had the trailer been totally honest. Not to give anything away, the trailer shows something which can't be achieved with the method as explained.

Not as easy as described Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 15th, 2016
This effect is very good looking on the video and the teaching is very good as well. However, it is nowhere as easy as it is described. I am a full time working professional magician and I understand the practice requirements to make something usable. I have put at least 24 hrs of practice into this and it is a looooong way off from being usable. You must understand if you purchase this with an introductory level of handling you are likely going to be unable to perform the effect.
I gave this 3 stars simply for the fact that the ad copy is rather vague in respect to what is required skill wise and time wise to perform a slight such as this.

Tutorial not enough detail Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 13th, 2016
Base on same concept of Reduction by the same arthur, here is the same principle but apply to different magic effect. The effect, if done in proper angle is quite strong and like the ad said can serve as alternative to impromtu the Ambitious Card routine.

However, the instruction video about a critical sleight is not detail explain. What I mean is that specific sleight requires exact finger position otherwise it cannot be achieved did not taught in detail.

This might look good in some performer's hands but you have to expect quite amount of practice to make it look good.

Very nice! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2016
I really like this effect. The first sleight isn't hard and after a few minutes you'll have it. The last sleight where the cards comes to the top is your angle problem if you can call it one, you just can't be surrounded. I've played with it enough that if you wanted to erase the last move you could do a double in the beginning so the specs see the card move up and the last time a traditional push the card in and now it's on the top. Actually working on pushing it in and pulling top card out to create same illusion. Well worth it and not a huge amount of time, a nice close to ambitious card for sure.

Misleading Demo Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 10th, 2017
This was an extremely disappointing purchase for me as the handling shown in the demo video can not be done with a person who has small or medium size hands ( I have average size). You must have large hands to do this. Therefore this routine is useless for me.

I LIKE it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2016
I really like what Nicholas has done here.

A simple effect that requires a bit of skill.
And that skill is very satisfying when you learn it.
Not hard either.

Nicholas does a fine job at explaining and the camera
work is superb.

This is already in my routine...and I only got it a bit ago.

Of all the rising card illusions, this is a WINNER

Visual Ambitious Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2016
Wonderful effect. For the right situations (angle sensitive) this is mind-blowing, visual magic. As a full-time pro I am always on the look out for VISUAL magic - sometimes I do very noisy cocktail parties. The Rising can be done with or without patter. Very versatile. Also - it's a simple effect - I work for international audiences that don't speak English here in NYC - so again, this visual gem is perfect.

Next - it's a card trick that doesn't need a table. Once you start working walk-around shows you'll realize how useless table top magic is. And no, I won't schlep a table around a room. Most clubs are too tight, multi-level, etc.

On the downside, I can't do this for a large / semi-surrounded group. But - it's a killer secret weapon to have ready for when the time is right. Performing for 2-4 people who are standing up? Perfect. Entertaining a few people at a cocktail table - yep, this will knock-em dead.

Easy enough method.

Awesome trick but Penguin needs to step up Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2016
The trick is great Plain and Simple, but the problem that I have with penguin magic is the quality of the videos, anything less than 1080p it's not acceptable!
