Question 3. How much space does the "Globe of Death" act NEED?
We actually have 2 Different style globes! One is elevated (in the Air) and the other one is on the ground.
The Globe is Actually 14' 6" in Diameter (Big/ Round) the Legs that extend out are called OUTRIGGERS (these legs are used to keep the Globe from tipping over) the legs have leveling mounts (adjustable feet) so the balance is fine tuned so the globe will not move very much. The Top of the Globe is 19' 6" Max (ELEVATED GLOBE) This is the Final Performance Height.
We need a Minimum of 30' x 30' area in order to get in and out of the Globe during the performance.
