Testing Testing Testing. The Beautiful Love Rocket.

We are fortunate enough to be suppliers of some of the biggest rockets in the UK but over the years, the more popular ‘big effects’ like the massive willow on the Sky Thriller rocket or the giant coconut ring with golden pistil centre of the Heavy Metal has been overtaken by the beautiful Love Heart rocket.

This beauty is the most romantic firework we sell and is the best and most consistent heart effect in the UK today.

Perfect for weddings, engagements, anniversaries or even Valentine’s Day is a lovely way of letting everyone know how much they mean to you.

The video shows the Love Heart Rocket being test fired following our contacting the manufacturers in China to check the flight and burst and as you can see, it’ blooming lovely.

The Stats:

£14.95 each (RRP £29.99)
Length: 1240mm
Head diameter: 80mm
Safety distance: 25m
Noise rating: 7/10

So all you lovers, get along to see us just off Junction 36 of the M1 and let the man, woman (or dog – it takes all sorts!) know just how much you love and appreciate them in style.

PLEASE NOTE – LIKE MANY SHAPE EFFECT ROCKETS – THEY CAN GO WRONG – YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !!!

Hot Off The Press. EPIC Does It Again.

Epic Fireworks - Sorted Magazine 2013

Epic fireworks are no strangers to the popular press had previously been the subject of a number of pieces in Men’s Health, The Sunday Mail supplement and Front Magazine and this year, we are delighted to be featured in the Sorted Magazine September/October edition.

They took six of our finest examples of 1.3g pyro available in the UK today and let rip!!

The first featured is the majestic Gold Willow which belts out 5 shots at a time leaving the ground in a fanned set up leaving bright tails behind and once they reach max height each of the comets burst into huge red-gold willow with white tips. A single effect piece that is brilliant in the middle of any display and used by pro firers up and down the UK for weddings and private displays. This is excellent value for money at just £64.95 including VAT (RRP £129.99).

Then, we have the brilliant and unparalleled Thunderous Finale. As the name would suggest, this absolute belter of a firework is a finale cake which took the fireworks world by storm when it first arrived in the UK in 2006. It is loud, its brash and its gorgeous and no display would be complete without one (or as many as you like – well spaced they are brilliantly fired in multiples). Available in both the original version and the 2012 Thunderous Finale II this must have firework has its own fans from John-O-Groats to Lands End.

The Predator is next up and its 500 shots of varied effects lasting for over two and a half minutes it is excellent value for money and perfectly created for a mid display filler. Since going to press (back in early May) the Chinese have increased the cost of this massively so we will have to wait until they arrive to give an update on cost but it is a fabulous piece even at the full RRP of £79.99.

Angels Vs Demons is a pyro nut favourite as it is packed with power and is fast firing mayhem in a box. WOW is generally the expression used when you see the spinning dragon tails and listen to the super loud reports (like gunshots only louder!) and large brocades with slow-falling glitter. Stunning!

Momentum is a lesser acknowledged beauty. This is one of the Epic staff favourites as its red/gold palms are really beautiful and although slow-paced, it fills the sky above with light and huge effects.

Finally, the ever popular 1.3g Smiley Face Rocket. What can you say about it other than on a still clear night sending one of these high into the sky it breaks into a HUGE smiley face which is guaranteed to bring a smile to all your spectators, young and old.

This is of course just a small fraction of our MASSIVE collection of pyro. If you click on the link below, you can browse our full range of SIB’s (single ignition barrages) for yourself.

Rocket Volleys Touch Down

2 x Rocket 40ft HQ Containers

Short of having twenty-five willing volunteers, a professional firing system, or Billy Wiz from the Beano on your firing team, it’s unlikely you would be able to set off twenty-five rockets simultaneously, until now…

Over the last few years, we here at Epic have been secretly developing a new style of firework……Rocket Volleys.

Here’s the low down..

The Thunderous rocket volley fires 25 large rockets from one single fuse, exploding into large bursts of iridescent purple and emerald-green dahlias followed by a huge golden cloud of crackling glitter.

The Pro Rocket volley again launches 25 rockets high into the sky then multiple bursts break into massive silver crackling palms to really wow the crowd.

The Skudbuster rocket volley.  This one has “more colour” with vivid red and vibrant green bursts, these more powerful rockets break more ferociously, bringing a few seconds of daylight to the cold November skies.

The well named Awesome rocket volley. Simply awesome.

Light one single fuse and 25 large rockets soar upwards, illuminating the night sky, creating a canopy of super bright bursts of varying colours depending on which item you select and you’re guaranteed to finish off your show in Epic style.

In fairness to all concerned the hugely popular volleys will still be offered on a first come first served basis, but we are happy for customers to place their orders now which we can hold until required for Weddings and Bonfire Night and any other celebration to guarantee you are one of the lucky few hundred in the UK to experience these boxes, which we expect to grow in popularity year after year as more and more people experience the spectacular and unique rocket volleys.

…and the good news is… most of the rockets are back in stock. The video below is from Saturday 27th July when the epic gang unloaded 2 x 40ft High Cube containers worth of rockets – and a load more rockets to come 🙂
