America’s Escape Artist Michael Griffin to attempt escape dare that nearly killed a magician last year.




CINCINNATI, OH.  Oct. 21/ -- 2X World magic award winning escape artist Michael Griffin is set to risk death and dismemberment Wednesday Oct 24 at 6:00PM on the grounds of Grove Banquet Hall, 9150 winton rd Cincinnati, OH in what he calls the most unusual sneak peak ever of the upcoming Houdini The Code show.  The escape artist will risk being pulled to pieces in a special dare to death similar to the ancient Roman torture.  Griffin will be handcuffed to 50’ of rope coiled on the ground and the terminal end attached to a car with engine revving ready to lurch into gear at the 30 second mark pulling to pieces anything or anyone still attached to it.  Springfield Township Police Chief Dave Heimpold will be on hand to test everything out making sure it is legitimate.


Recently, a magician attempting a less grueling version of Griffin’s stunt was catastrophically injured, to see videoclick here    (  Griffin says “ I have challenged death many times, its never easy, its never comfortable and when you see can happen like the other guys accident, it just reminds you that death does come, ready or not.”
