One of the most amazing was where he "reads" a persons mind for a name then burns the paper of the name and rubs the ashes on his arm, revealing the name of the person thought-of. I remember some late-night TV ads selling a video which explained how it was done so you could do it at parties.
There's a reasonable explanation to all those tricks.

But, I also know that some of the things they do are completely real, it is extremely difficult to fake walking on water with a full pool of people...

It just seems to me that when Criss Angel levitated from one building to another, out in the open, and in broad daylight, that there must have been some people in the buildings in the area, who were NOT actors nor payed off to keep silent, who saw what was happening, and if cables and helicopters had been used by him then some of those witnesses would have said something by now to the media.
If any of us saw such an event staged using cables and helicopters we would certainly blab about it to somebody, and the word would get around and sooner rather than later one of us would call the media and tell them what we saw. But this has NEVER happened with regard to Criss Angel's levitation. NOBODY has ever come forward and "spilled the beans." So that is a good indication that when we see Criss Angel levitating in this video Criss Angel Levitates he was NOT using cables and helicopters.

Look up Criss Angel Levitation on Wikipedia and you'll find out how they are done. Nothing special about it. He uses what's called a 'gimmick'. A simple pre-prepared set of tools to help get the trick done.
