I'd recommend you avoid anything from Snap Illusions.

The problem with your post Karsten is that you give us no criteria from which we can give recommendations.

What are your working conditions? Is there a proscenium, lights, sound, proximity to the audience, availability of assistant(s), budget, portability, rehearsal time, your experience. Etc.

There are a number of illusions that would work for a small show with a 'big ending.'

This is basic well known advice but you need something smallish, Something that can be done surrounded or nearly so and something that will allow you do some time.

Unless you want a sub trunk,which could be a good choice, you also need a lot of money. Do NOT buy anything cheap just to have an illusion. You will regret it. If you can not afford the best prop, simply forget about getting it at all.
