Electric Towers (chocolate towers ->electric towers, oh the genius!) is the Fireworks Extravaganza! Three days of.urm.well, all I saw was an A3 poster in the valley, the picture was the towers themselves, with a pink-purple-thundery glow from the windows and thunderbolts in the sky, with shots of nemesis in at the side. Bloody beautiful poster and looks ace! don't know anything else.

God Dammit, and why didn't you take a photo? Ahem!

Sounds good, although going off the current event, i do really hope they are keeping ALL their funds for the fireworks event.

That poster sounds great!

You'd better! hehe, nah - only if you can, I'm on park on Sunday so i'll try and take a high-res one then if possible.

Sounds interesting anyway, be interesting to see what happens. Does the poster imply Halloween or not?

Yeh we got told that the Firworks were based around an electric storm focussing on the Towers themselves. Good too see it finally being advertised

lets not hold our breath. A fireworks show linked in with Towers. Well that would be nice. But again, this is 2006 events team. We shall see.

High budget for fireworks with halloween cancelled obivously this year its going to be good and not a last minute rush job like last years bit of a botch.

This is the 2006 events team who advertised a chocolate volcano for Chocolate Towers, a Beach, beach hut and Sand Alton Towers for the summer spectacular, we all saw these at there events. I think you can see what i'm implying.

It's pretty obvious that the towers are going to be used this year, Noise restrictions in force so how about more lighting and alternative sources of entertainement.

All makes sense really.

I do think this year they will make much better use of the towers. They could even launch rockets from the towers - I am so going this year!

Weird, I thought they were trying to make Dr Pop Rocket a well known figure associated with the fireworks.

However I would welcome anything different, but don't hold your breath for anything outstanding just yet.

They could fire stuff from the Towers yes. However, they could only do this from a roof, if it was flat and it was safe with good acess / escape routes.

Its what most firework companies want :)
