The "Bermuda Triangle" illusion is the second longest illusion included in a Copperfield TV special: it reaches the length of 16:04 minutes, and is surpassed only by the "Escape From Alcatraz" escape, that holds the record for length of 17:25 minutes, more than any other one, and is included in The Magic of David Copperfield IX: The Escape from Alcatraz (1987). The measured times also take into account the initial explanation.

In this TV special there are five illusions filmed for the TV audience only since David Copperfield performed them in places where it was not possible to have a live audience: "Sunglasses Routine" on a boat in the sea, "Floating On The Beach" and "Coal To Diamond" on the shore of a beach, "Floating Match" inside an ancient round building isolated and located on a hill, and "Bermuda Triangle" on a huge triangular platform floating on the Atlantic Ocean within the Bermuda Triangle. No other Copperfield TV special includes so many illusions performed without a live audience.
