The Suspension Straight Jacket Escape will always be a special stunt for Scott; it was this stunt that earned him his first Guinness World Record for “Highest Suspension Straitjacket Escape.” This amazing escape was seen internationally on the popular television show, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” and led to several other television appearances.
Since it’s not always possible to access the space and crew required for a hot air balloon, Scott has earned a reputation executing this stunt from buildings, cranes, and other structures around the world.
This crowd favourite has all of the elements that make up a spectacular stunt: the history, the danger, and the skill of the illusionist laid bare in 360 degree vision. The stunt is thrilling and often highly publicized because of its difficulty and daring.
Scott has performed this stunt at a variety of events, including Waterloo’s Festival of Fools, The Mount Forest Fireworks display, Hanging at High Noon in Vernon, British Columbia, Rear View Fundraiser at the Living Arts Center, The Canadian Student Leadership Conference in Montreal, Global Issues Network GINSING Conference in Singapore and for the Count Me In Conference, to highlight a few.
