    World of Color Testing Pics

    I was reading TechOperations Fantasy Waters thread and noticed he posted a link to a site that had World of Color testing photos. Or some other water show that was on Paradise Pier's lake (not Luminaria)

    Re: World of Color Testing Pics

    Mirage Water Works received a call from Disney's California Adventure. They needed a Peacock Tail immediately. We designed it, built it and delivered it in less than 12 hours. These pictures are during the testing stage. The image with the green and red is Disney's Dancing Water Fountain.
    The last two pictures of the peacock tail screen is from a 4th of July show we did for the town of Tempe, AZ. The system was a 40' high Mirage PTN-40 nozzle that was used repeatedly in an hour long multi-media Water / Pyro show. This was the “Pre-Show Walk-In Look and Video Testing”.
    This was posted as 4th of July. I am not sure if anyone was in the park (I was not) but this may have been for that celebration.

    Re: World of Color Testing Pics

    I just wanna know what that "Snow Globe" is doing there.
    Are they taking a stab at Universal Studios Orlando "Universal 360" show?
    I think I remember seeing them in the concept artwork too.

    Edit: Oh, this was for fourth of July?

    When I clicked on Main Gallery view it said Disney California Adventure and 4th of July. It then proceeded to state in the description that the DCA tail was designed, built, and delivered within 12 hours. That left me with the impression that this was possibly temporary and maybe used on the 4th of July since it was lumped in the same gallery. I was not in the park on the 4th. I do not know if that is the case or if this was for something else and simply lumped in the same gallery.

    I just saw the photos for it! It looks like they are using some of the same technology they used for Fantasmic! But, when it comes out, I'll have to wait and see.

    Re: World of Color Testing Pics

    Check out the bottom portion of the OP's link to Mirage Waterworks.

    How interesting (and how current) is the copyright displayed below the posted picture?

    I highly doubt the copyright is for anything besides the photos as the technology for the water screens debuted during Fantasmic!'s 1992 premiere.

    In addition, visit the home page of Mirage Waterworks and connect to the Credits tab. Notice how their most recent project is a listing for "2005 World Expo Japan (pending)."

    I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer.

    I just wanted to do some more digging around with the presented information.

    I think the pictures shown are PERHAPS other "failed versions" of Luminaria?

    By the way, the 4th of July portion focuses on the Tempe, AZ project.

    This might be true but their wasn't ANYTHING like it in Luminaria at all. Just those stupid gift box tv's or projections. Thats a far cry from this. An plus their wasn't a sphere in Luminaria. But there is an Earth like dome thing in the World of Color concept art. But I do see the copyright issue. An I also know these were taken after hours because in picture 4 you can clearly see work lights on Screamin'. Which means it wasn't a private event either.

    I think that maybe if we can see Midway Mania across the bay than it can cement if it's WOC testing or not...
