Magic Lessons #24 – Balloon Penetration Trick
This balloon penetration trick has been named Watch it Buster! This magic trick involves skewering a balloon without the balloon bursting, unless you want it to.
This trick is based on the classic “Needle Through The Balloon Trick” where a needle around 30cm in length, usually decorated with a ribbon or wool threaded through it’s eye, is inserted in one side of the balloon and exits through the other side without the balloon popping. This Balloon Penetration Trick is our version of the classic magic trick.
After first discovering and learning the Balloon Penetration trick, I was reluctant to include it in my routines for a number of years. Upon learning the tricks secret, I assumed the audience would not be impressed with the technical side as of the magic trick. It seemed a little too simple and obvious.
