Mine - Usually starting with a small fountain which helps to build the anticipation for the main effect; the mine will give a sudden eruption at ground level, shooting into the air and normally accompanied by a loud bang. The effect is that of a shower of stars moving upward in an inverted cone.
Mines are a great way to start a display; they normally give everyone a fright as they start off looking like fountains and quickly turn into a large and loud burst of effects. Many customers comment that they look like sticks of dynamite with the distinctive “mine hat” that most mines have on the top of them. They are definitely loud and not for the faint hearted.
