Hounini's Magic Escapes

The Water Torture Cell

The Water Torture Cell

In this escape, Harry was placed head down in a large container of water, resembling a fish tank. His feet would be locked in place as he lay upside down over the water. Minutes later he is dropped into the tank and a lid was immediately fastened on the top with many metal bolts and locks. Houdnini would then be locked in a cell practically standing on his head. The point of the escape was to make it out of the tank before he ran out of breath.

How He Escaped

The stocks holding his feet were secrertly rigged so Harry could free his feet when the curtain was drawn. They were also made so he could quickly get out of the tank and lock the stocks before anyone would notice. When the curtain was closed, he just had to lift himself up and unlock the bars around his feet.
