  • [Question] Disappearing Sleeping Beauty Castle

    Years ago I remember seeing a TV special in which Siegfried and Roy had an illusion that made SBC disappear. This was probably sometime back in late 80's maybe early 90's. Anyone remember what it was for or where there is a video of it? I can't find it on youtube.

    If I recall correctly, it was David Cooperfield. Maybe try looking for that?

      It was indeed Siegfried and Roy, and I have not been able to find it either. Sorry.

        No definatly Siegfried and Roy, only info I have found is that it was called Disney's Magic in the Magic Kingdom and it was from Feb 1988.

          Sorry - did Copperfield ever do something like that? I strangely remember him doing something at Disneyland. Oh well.

            I vaguely recall Copperfield doing something with Disney once too but not what I am trying to find. I just remember being amazed by this illusion and have yet to see it again

              Didn't he make the Statue of Liberty disappear?

                Copperfield made the S of L disappear, yes.

                    So what, you could be standing there, and suddenly Sleeping Beauty Castle wasn't there anymore?? This sounds baffling

                      MarkTwain, they're called "illusions" for a reason.

                        so if you witnessed it live, the S of Liberty would just be gone? The whole castle would just be gone? It's not and effect just for TV?

                        I'm finding this so hard to believe, how could you make the Statue, which is the size of a HUGE building and incredibly tall, disappear from all who are looking at it? in 360 degrees?

                            Those tricks for making huge buildings disappear can only be done on TV. They've shown how magicians do that trick on those magic-revealing shows.

                              well for one thing.. it's not 360 deg The viewers are always in a preset location.
