  • Fantasmic Pyro Question

    Okay, this question has been bugging me for awhile, and maybe someone here knows the answer. Does Fantasmic use cold fire pyrotechnics at all? It seems that in a stage show where the performers are relatively close to the pyro, it would be an added safety measure.

    Considering the last mickey at the end got 3rd degree burns once I think not.

      I think the maleficent red&green reveal flames are cold fire pyro, but I dunno about the rest.

        I have a co worker that is a part time pyro for Disney. When I see him I will find out.

          Just talked to my co-worker and he said Disney uses NO cold fireworks.

          If I can remember to bring a camera to work tomorrow I will take a picture of a Mickey finger.

            I dont think they use any cold pyro, because most effect would be cooled by the air ariund then, or as they drop in the water, the only cold pyro they would use would be the flames for malificent and the sword fingers for mickey.

              Even the Mickey Finger is not a cold firework. I was surprised.

                Thanks for finding out for me! That is really surprising. Cold fire is in fairly common use in theatrical pyrotechnics. I know we used it quite a bit at Cirque de la Mer. Was fascinating to watch our pyrotechnician hold his arm in one of the fountains in a demonstration.

                  What's a cold pyro effect??

                    It's a pyrotechnic effect where the resulting sparks are actually cold to the touch. Very useful for situations in which you need to put people in close proximity to the pyro, and don't want to run the risk of burning someone.

                      With the amount of smoke they all spew out, I didn't think they were cold fireworks except for the ones that get sprayed out of the ground for things like sorcerer mickey appearing, the evil queen's sparks, and maleficent

                      //but 'cold' or not, you don't want to get shot in the face point blank by pyro :P

                        similar to the mickey fingers, kind of like a miniature flashpot in the palm of your hand.

                          the fog/smoke effects for the sorcerer mickey and evil queen's are done with high presseure water, pushed through fog nozzles that make the fog come out at .5 microns. http://www.koolfog.com
