Hi!

I just recently acquired the Ben Wallace Haunted House, and would be interested in hearing more about Ben Wallace and the magic apparatus he made -- does anyone have any stories to share?

Thanks!

Rick,

Sorry I haven't heard of him. Can you describe the effect? Is it similar to The Great Leon's Miniature Haunted House?

Pete,

No, it is not really similar to the Leon's Miniature Haunted House. The effect is three cards are chosen and they all rise from the haunted house's chimney. At the end the house which was shown empty produces a spring ghost -- not the most earth-shattering effect, by any means! I know from looking at Ron Allesi's Catalogs that Ben Wallace made other magic effects, so I am just want to find out what other people may know about Ben Wallace.

Thanks!
