    Mickey nearly lights himself on fire...TWICE

    This was posted in a different thread by nonob88. I thought it was so dangerous and ridiculous that it needed it's own thread! This is terrifying! It's sad it happened twice in a row.

    That stinks, the thing with fireworks is they seem to not all be the same (speaking from the ones shooting out of mickey's hands)

    Also it seems like once the show restarted nothing was on queue anymore, which is why the fountains were screwed up, and maleficent never came up.


    They are prob running some terrible outdated computer system where everything is specifically timed.

    His costume is flame retardant, no worries. He could shoot himself in the face with the sparklers and he'll be fine.

    They really messed up both those shows though.. and Ugh those World of color spare garden hose fountains are terrible.

    There looks like there was something weird with the firework product this weekend on Fantasmic. All the shows I saw of it had them burning weird. Likely some weird defect in the manufacturing process.

    Show restarts would have nothing to do with why Maleficent didn't rise. The system controlling the fountains on the other hand... It looks like the screens didn't come up first show. What ever they did to get them to work for the restart seems to not have been fully done with the restart. And then they all came on one by one.

    I think the screens didn't come up because they were shutting down the show after mickey's incident.

    It's obvious that the pyrotechnics were not working properly and had issues, but I would hardly say that Mickey "nearly lit himself on fire" to be honest.

    I'm sorry, but the end with Maleficent cracked me up. All you see is the staff waving around below the stage.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    I was at the 1030 and 1045 show on Friday, The fireworks mishaps have been happening alot lately, no clue why? and yes i had the only chuckle when maleficent did not rise from her pit and was reaching her wand out of the pit, great show. Btw Most all of the costumes in the show are fire/flame retardent, SafeD First folks

    Agreed and yeah I don't like them either. They look really weak. Also I don't like how out in the open they are, really obvious that there's fountains.

    That may just be me, but it's not as believable when you can see that fountains that clear.

    You know they are bad when you can see those giant bulky nozzles when they are off
