Or the one in 2008 (i think) where they had a kids party balloon as a projector and a 'generic' computer soundwave in black and green as an evil force #-o
That would be Electric Towers in 2006.
Out of all the fireworks I remember watching one as a child with a Wizard storyline? Something to do with dragons and fo shizzle. :P All I can remember is loving the fire effects and just it being the most "magical" display.
Dr Pop Rocket were my favorite ones. Even though there were incredibly cheesy, Rita as a time machine isit? I did love them and found those the most entertaining.
Hope to get myself to the 2011 fireworks, haven't seen one in the flesh since 2005, have missed the shows dearly, the setting at Alton is unbeatable.[/quote]
The wizard one was 2001, and yes the explosions on the waterfront were a nice effect that year. It was probably the most "magical" of all the displays but whether or not that makes it the best I can't decide.
Dr Pop Rocket's time travel was 2004 and his Rita-Instant-Teleportation thing was 2005 where he went all over the world in a split second. Cheesy, but fun.
Just realised as well that 2010 was also missing the dancing flame projectors which made an appearance at nearly every recent show.
