Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No, it’s the Super Hero Race: A Marvel-ous version of Kimmo’s classic effect!
It’s the fun and exciting game that is also a trick! The kids go crazy for this one and the adults are left scratching their heads and wondering how on earth it’s done!
A child takes on three adults in a Superhero themed race game. Despite what seems like totally fair conditions, the child wins every time!
24 cards are handed out to be FREELY AND GENUINELY SHUFFLED by spectators. The cards depict classic comic book ‘sound effects’ in red, yellow, blue and green.
Meanwhile, a child is recruited and is told that he/she will take part in a Superhero race against three adults. There is fun and byplay as the rivals are chosen and encouraged to ‘trash talk’ the young volunteer. The adults get to choose their favourite colour Superhero (there is no force whatsoever). The child must take whichever colour is left.
The cards are retrieved and then the Super Hero Race begins!
POW! BIFF! SOK!
One by one, cards are taken from the top of the stack and turned over to reveal the colour of the hero who will move along the track. The race gets very exciting and the children always raise the roof in response! It looks like the child’s superhero is lagging behind but then suddenly it jumps forward and catches up. Maybe a photo finish will be required! Everything rests on the turn of one card!
Imagine the reactions from the crowd when the final card is spun round to reveal that the child is the winner!
The original version of this routine was the SMASH HIT of Trix in the Stix 2013, Kidabra 2013 and KAX 2014.
During the pandemic, all Race Games will be made to order and delivery will take approximately 2 weeks.
