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 🙂

Jimmy Testing Rockets In China

Barnsley Chronicle - Jimmy's Fireworks Feature

For the last 2 weeks, BIG BOSS Jimmy has been in Liuyang, China testing the epic rockets for the 2013 firework season.

Jimmy likes to make around 6 trips over to China each year to make sure that all the products are FIRST CLASS – Jimmy was firing rockets all day and night, checking the quality of the effects, the fuse burn time, the label, the shipping cartons, the launch tubes, the height etc…

Check out the video below 🙂

DIY. Whats the story ….

The Barnsley Boyz 50th Birthday Party Fireworks

Here at Epic, we know a thing or two about fireworks having been in the fireworks business for nearly 30 years now so we certainly feel qualified to offer advice relating to what it will take to make your event go with a bang!

We have, as you can well imagine, fired literally tons of pyro over the years.  Some good, some not so good but at the end of the day, we have weeded out the weaker stuff and left ourselves with a plethora of goodies with which to thrill our customers resulting in a range of great fireworks to suit every pocket and style.

If you have limited space and budget, why not try our wonderful Guido’s pack.  Named after the man himself, Guy Fawkes (Guido is the Spanish equivalent of Guy), it is collection only due to the number of individual fireworks but it does represent brilliant value for money.

The pack contains:

  • 23 rockets
  • 11 barrages
  • 15 fountains
  • 10 roman candles
  • 1 wheel
  • 1 mine
  • 10 packs of monster sparklers
  • And, a huge lantern

All this for £99.95 including VAT.

Alternatively, those with a little more space and a higher budget, you have a couple of choices.  You could go with either the After Midnight pack £295.00 inc VAT which contains some of the best barrages on the market (as detailed in Mens Health 2011) the incomparable Thunderous Finale and the Screaming Spiders or the Conspiracy Pack.

There are 10 of the best barrages in our range in the After Midnight, an all-round easy to light, fool-proof pack.  If all the items are lit consecutively this is an absolutely beautiful display of around 5-7 minutes duration (depends if you want to fire the two Thunderous Finale and 1 Screaming Spider together as we would recommend).

If you think that this is a little short in duration (although I can assure you that five full minutes of fireworks is a good display) you could consider our best seller which is the Conspiracy Pack.  Again priced at a very reasonable £295.00 inc VAT, it contains 10 barrages of varying sizes plus 46 rockets.  Just the timings for firing the barrages concurrently would be just over 7 minutes so add the rockets to the mix and you will have a sky full of fireworks for around 10-12 minutes (depending on how quickly you can light the rockets!)

These are of course just a very small sample of what is on offer from Epic fireworks and the packs are really easy to use and if you take away the fact that they are considerably bigger in size than your run of the mill garden fireworks they are just the same.  A little preparation before dark makes things a great deal easier and you can easily have ‘buddy’ firing where one side fires first and then the other so neither are likely to be returning to a burning firework.  We provide the set up plan, safety instructions, goggles, rocket launching tubes, safety lighters (portfires – brilliant as they are windproof and stay lit for a few minutes each so plenty of time to go from barrage to barrage) and to cap it off, if you come to collect any of our £295.00 or above packs, you will receive 4 big beautiful Sky Storm rockets too.

If you are considering putting on a show this year and would like our help and advice, please call us on 01226 749587 7-days a week or email me via the following [email protected] and either myself or one of my colleagues will get back to you as soon as possible.  We can look at your venue online and check out what space you have, recommend layout and firing order and even recommend insurers (if applicable) who may be able to help you.
