GIRL TO GORILLA
The ultimate midway illusion!

You show patrons a beautiful girl in skimpy "jungle" costume, and promise them that inside she will be locked in a sturdy cage where everyone will clearly see her transform into a 500-pound, vicious gorilla.

And you deliver on your promise! That's when the enraged beast breaks out of the cage, sending the audience screaming out of the tent!

Restored from a 1960s original,  7 pages show you how to build either a truck-mounted version or a stage-mounted version.
