Fireworks 2018 “The Greatest Show” Video

Recommended Posts

I know this has been mentioned in other threads, but this definitely warrants its own topic of discussion.

Check out this video of the fireworks along with the amazing new light aspects on I-Street. The audio is a little weak at first because one of the new speakers didn’t kick in until halfway through the show, but this really shows you how incredible the street is now.

Whoah! That was really well put together. I missed it being in Diamondback's station. I'm personally glad to see more like that in the park.  The only thing I wish they still did, was shoot the fireworks from the side of the Eiffel Tower. Anyone know exactly why they don't do it anymore? I know park ownership changed, but why can't Cedar Fair do that?

I thought it was pretty cool when I saw it last night, and definetly something different. I really liked the music; it sounded like a Panic at the Disco song, both in music and in the singer's voice.

That would require a lot of downtime for the tower. I also learned from one of the ride associates a few years back that it burned the paint off.

They never did it nightly. Only for the 4th.

Ownership has nothing to do with it. In fact, Dominion did it last year for the 4th. There is a fall out zone required for any type of pyrotechnic in which spectators can not be present. All of this depends on the size of the product and manufacturers’ recommendations.  The logistical problem is that you have to close the area under the  tower, which is much easier said than done when there are tens of thousands of people in the park. This makes more sense at a park like Dominion than Kings Island.

The Eiffel Tower likely would not experience downtime. In fact, it didn’t close  at Dominion while we loaded the show during the day and they even kept it open during the show. Since the fireworks were on the front of the tower the back wasn’t in the fallout zone.

Being on the tower looking down at those fireworks would certainly be a unique view! B)

What is strip club music these days?  It has been a very, very long time for me, like the early 90s.  

I'm sure it depends on the establishment...lol...but any song that starts out with a motorcycle revving and you imagine the cheesy announcer voice saying, "Let's welcome to the main stage....Crystal Chandalierrrrr!!!" and then menacing electric guitar....
