We, The Escape Artist's...

The art of Escapology is as old as the hills...going back as far as ancient Greese.  The Celts were known to tie one another up with strips of  wet sheep skin and place bets on whether or not the tied up person would slip their bonds.

In the early part of the 20.th century, our beloved Harry Houdini brought the art of Escapology to the fore and became a star in the process.

In the middle of the 20th. century, people such as Steve "Mr.Escape" Baker, Norm Bigelow, David DeVal and Alan Alan made world headlines with their daring escapes.

Today, in the early 21.st century, we have names such as Gunnarson, Johnson, Carnegie, Chance and others who have chosen to suffer cuts, bruises, sprains and even broken bones...just to show the world that Escapology is alive and well !

In the pages of this web site, you'll meet some of those people, see their photos and read their personal stories...

I have a brand new forum just for Escape Artists , please check it out at... 


I sincerely hope you enjoy this website and come back often.
