Randal Adamek came to the Living History Park on Saturday to see a performance by Faire Wynds.

Little did he know, he would be in one of their acts.

Eric Scites of Faire Wynds selected Adamek and another man from the audience to be in an act that involved wrapping a chain around Scites’ wife, Susan, who sat in what was called a spirit box. The chain was then secured with a lock.

“She’s locked up!” confirmed Adamek as he and others looked on curiously to see what was going to happen.

Each time Scites closed the black curtain to the spirit box, a sound would come from within but when the curtains were reopened, the chains seemed to remain in place.

By the end of the act, Adamek found himself also enclosed in the spirit box.

When the curtains were closed and then reopened for the last time, a bag covered Adamek’s head.

He was in just as much shock as the audience, he said after the show, noting that he was skeptical at first.

“I don’t know what happened, or how she did that,” he said.

The Illusion Act was a part of the Spirits of Hallowed Eve activities at the park. Other activities included a Wine and Spirits event on Friday and ghost walks and grand finale performance by Faire Wynds on Saturday.
