Harary’s Water Tank
Designer: Franz Harary
Builder: Franz Harary Illusion Team
Harary originally tried multiple methods for producing a girl in a tank of water. He finally found the perfect method in his “Water Tank” illusion. Harary borrows a finger ring and causes it to vanish. He then shows a tank filled only with water and causes the water to bubble. In an instant, a girl appears wearing the borrowed ring.
Harary said he was inspired by the movie Abyss and took up scuba diving. He created this effect in 1989. He’s sold about 5 of these to various magicians around the world. His second unit was sold to Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 1990.
