A very intriguing puzzle made from mold injected plastic and solid brass for the bars, the Alcatraz seems like an impossible challenge, as you try to take the steel ball out of its cage. With almost no space to wiggle the ball around, you will have to think “outside the cage” to find a way and free the ball. Invented by a magician, who was searching for the perfect item for his collection.

This puzzle give absolutely no idea how to be solved. I was glad that I cheated on this and looked up the solution. I would have never found it all by myself.
I think this puzzle is great. It is a bit heavy so I might use it as a paper weight on my desk. Pop the ball out, put it back, and then ask your friends to try it without breaking the bars :)
Not really a puzzle......More like a trick... Pretty cool, but you can't even see the opening mechanism so you can't really "figure" it out!
