Block & Rope Escape is a stunning, visual penetration that takes place in the spectator's hands.  This effect has amazed both children and adults throughout the years, and is finally available again.

The magician displays a 3" solid block of wood, which has a hole drilled through the center, and a 7' length of orange rope.  After securely tying the rope through the block, the spectator then pulls the block confirming that it is indeed tied into the rope.

The magician then proceeds to hold the ends of the rope and twirl the block.  As the block is twirling, the spectator grabs hold of the block with both hands and the block comes completely off the tied rope, directly into the astonished spectator's hands!

Very interactive magic!

Block and Rope Escape is:
  • Easy to perform
  • Requires no sleights
  • Has instant reset
  • Completely examinable
  • Suitable for close-up and street, but also large enough for stage
The Block & Rope Escape comes complete, with well written instructions and 9 color photographs.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a limited production of 10 blocks, crafted in solid maple and polyurethaned to a fine finish.  After these are sold out, due to the high cost of maple, future blocks will be a wooden 4" square made from a durable wood, painted red and polyurethaned, complete with a 7' length of orange rope, well written instructions and 9 color photographs.

If you prefer the larger 4" red block, please let us know at MJM Magic, and we will be sure to get it preordered for you.

I actually make this product for sale through MJM Magic- but this is my unbiased review of it. It simply floors children and grown ups! And, this effect gets the most audience reaction by far! Quality made to last, routined for audience participation. Use it where ever you perform!

I got this around a week ago and have been playing with it know for a few days and WoW this effect is very nice. Easy to do and gets great reactions from laymen. Very well made. Sold wood and top notch rope is used. Looks very nice to the eye. There was a trick called houdini block escape, but it was not made very well. The Block and Rope Escape by Michael Smilek makes that one look like a kids toy. If your in to rope magic you must add this to your act. I did and I love it.
