DIY CONSUMER DISPLAY PACKS COMPARISON

As the 2019 Bonfire Night season gets underway, we compare our three best selling DIY consumer display packs which are all the same price and meet different needs.

All our DIY Consumer Display packs are created with the customer in mind. In the £295.00 bracket, we have three packs which pretty much cover all bases. We spend time in China designing, selecting and firing several products before they meet our exacting standards.

CONSPIRACY

51 FIREWORKS (14 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 37 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 7 MINUTES PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This is our number 1 best selling firework pack which this year contains a selection of barrages, big a small with rockets that can be fired intermittently throughout the display.  Primarily, this pack is intended for a small/medium sized crowd and contains everything you need for a first-class display filling the sky with a multitude of effects and colours.

Our Conspiracy Pack is widely used at events including scout groups and community events where a small gathering is expected.  It does contain loud whistles and screeches along with other sonic and sky filling effects and sounds. This pack contains one of our biggest sellers which has stood the test of time; Thunderous Finale.

BLACK POWDER

82 FIREWORKS (22 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 60 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 12 MINUTES (IF FIRING EACH ITEM INDIVIDUALLY) PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This pack was created with younger children in mind and contains a larger number of smaller but equally impressive little barrages (cakes) along with a huge range of rockets. If all the items are fired individually, this will give you a 12-minute display whereas if they are fired in pairs (where appropriate) it will be a little over 7 minutes.  The pack also contains one of the most popular little barrages in our range; Humming Hornets.

AFTER MIDNIGHT

10 FIREWORKS – ALL BARRAGES (CAKES) – RUN TIME 6 MINUTES

The last of the £295.00 packs is the elegant After Midnight which contains only large barrages (cakes). The pack is aimed at those wanting a high impact high noise display and certainly ticks all the boxes. This pack also boasts the fabulously loud Screaming Spiders.

So, there you have them – check them all out on our website which also has videos with every item in stock so you can view before you buy. Unfortunately, these packs cannot be changed or amended but if you are able to get over to see us in Tankersley, you also get several free products for collecting in person.

FAN OF FANNED CAKES? – EPIC HAS IT COVERED!

The fanned cake is very similar to any other firework being made up from a number of tubes which essentially are numerous roman candles affixed to one another at an angle resulting in shots being fired either in sweeping or straight fans.

They can either be a full fan where each is a bank of shots that fill the air either sweeping from start to finish like the awesome Tracer Bullet to a full expanse fan like the Lightwaves Barrage.

Here are some of our top fanned cakes:

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT – £64.98 – 25 second duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This cake sweeps left to right and has a great impact as it is VERY fast firing. Multi-colored peonies throughout this definitely have to be seen first hand to fully appreciate the bright colours.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT 50 SHOT FAN BARRAGE

KING OF THE JUNGLE – £99.96 – 60 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 168 shots

An arch of colour and noise this has great ground and aerial effects that fill up the sky. A great cake with a long duration which is packed with red, green and gold with a few blue hints. A beauty which with superb timing and at a minute duration, a great standalone piece or as part of a bigger display.

SPECIAL EFFECTS – £64.98 – 40 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This z-shaped fan fires banks of 5 shots of huge red-tipped fizzing palms which hang in the air – big, bold and above all, BEAUTIFUL.

HUMMING HORNETS – £9.98 – 30 seconds duration – 6/10 noise level – 28 shots

Small in stature it may be but it more than makes up for this shortcoming by being one of the best-selling pieces in the EPIC range. With red, green yellow and blue colours, it brings a smile to everyone’s face and the fanned multiple shot finale makes it one for any occasion. Check it out and turn up the volume on this sonic cake (as I said it is not loud) and listen … I cannot see this one without smiling!

EPIC FIREWORKS – BONFIRE NIGHT – WHY NOT DO IT YOURSELF?

As Bonfire Night fast approaches, many are making decisions as to whether to attend a public display or indeed to have one of their own.

In the year’s gone by, we have I am sure had more than our fair share of non-descript and frankly disappointing fireworks but nowadays, you can enjoy fireworks which are highly impressive but can still be lit by Joe Public.

The DIY Firework Display packs we have available are packed with an extensive choice of barrages and rockets that are tried and tested goods all the way from China.  We spend a great deal of time over in China, ensuring that the products meet both our exacting standards and of course, they are all rigorously tested by the Health and Safety Executives both in China and over here in the UK, leaving no stone unturned.

Pack choice is really determined by several factors including:

  • BUDGET
  • WHETHER YOU WANT ROCKETS OR NOT
  • NOISE LEVEL
  • THE SPECTATORS YOU ARE EXPECTING

Whilst every effort is made to meet customer requirements, the packs cannot be interchanged with other items from the range, so if you want a particular barrage, you might be better served in choosing a less expensive pack and then adding this on as an extra.

The Big Ben pack https://epicfireworks.com/big-ben, for example, is £495.00 including Vat and free delivery to any UK mainland address and contains 19 mixed barrages and 37 rockets with a huge variety of colours and effects,  But, if for example, you wanted a couple of different ones, then you would perhaps be better with the Conspiracy Pack https://epicfireworks.com/conspiracy and add on a couple of extra pieces like the Armistice https://epicfireworks.com/armistice-100-shot which is mainly red in colour or the beautiful Ice Warrior https://epicfireworks.com/ice-warrior-49-shot which is dominantly blue and silver with huge palm effects.

In addition to the display packs (which all come with the safety information, set up plan, safety goggles, and safety lighters) we have a comprehensive number of ‘collection only’ garden display packs which we believe will suit every pocket.  Starting from just £24.95 for the fabulous Plot Night pack to the spectacular Guido’s Party Pack at £99.95.  PLEASE NOTE THAT COLLECTION ONLY PACKS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY AND CAN ONLY BE PICKED UP FROM OUR HEAD OFFICE IN SOUTH YORKSHIRE.

If you are unsure, give us a ring and one of our technicians will be happy to chat with you and see what we can do to help.
