Flame and Fire FX
We specialize in Flame and Fire Effects that utilize flammable gases like propane and natural gas. We design, build and instal custom fire systems for all applications from backyards to international theme parks.
Our Fire Systems have been installed around the world in many different applications from custom-built Tiki Torches to large Volcano Eruptions. We can even temporarily turn your swimming pool into a decorative flame effect centered around your party or event. This is a truly unique accent to any occasion.
Whatever your needs are, we can design and build it! Safety is our #1 Priority in all aspects of special effects and particularly when fire is involved.
All fire systems conform to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 160, Standard for the Use of Flame Effects before an Audience.
Mechanical Special Effects
Orlando Special Effects can deliver mechancial special effects from concept and design to fabrication and installation. We have many different mechanical effects installed all over the world including motorized saw blades, pneumatic jumping dog houses and hydraulic cracking egg.Mechanical special effects are popular in theme parks, museums, trade shows, haunted houses, mini golf courses and military training facilities. They can be used to illustrate a scientific principle or add a dramatic effect to an otherwise mundane experience; especially when combined with lights, sounds and physical special effects such as fog or mist.
We can design and fabricate mechanical effects from miniatures for table top display to gigantics for outdoor display.
Mechanical effects typically involve electrical, air and/or phenuamtic power combined with systems to move devices or objects in a controlled manner. The devices or objects create an illusion of an event or series of events that fits whatever the theme or story line of the venue, such as a minature golf course with a Paul Bunyon theme having logs being sawed or an historical train museum simulating the loading of coal into a hopper.
Whatever your ideas may be, we can make them a reality. Feel free to contact us with questions or ideas. We are always looking for new and exciting projects!
Fog, Mist and Rain Effects
Orlando Special Effects can create all kinds of fog, mist and rain effects. We utilize a variety of mediums to produce these effects from simple water or glycol-based theatrical smoke machines, LN2 and CO2 cryogenic fog effects to water fogging and misting systems.
Cryogenics are any liquid colder than 100° below zero. Utilizing LN2 or CO2 creates a thick white puffy cloud-like fog. It can be delivered softly with calm flowing qualities or shot out of a cannon very rapidly creating large and intense columns. This effect is great for live shows, special events, sporting events, theatrical productions and weddings.
Water fogging or misting is generally used outdoors but does have some indoor applications. Misting systems utilize 100% water to produce a fog very similar to that of a spring or fall morning.Water fog in an arid environment can actually lower the temperature up to 25° F in the immediate area and does offer some cooling wherever it is installed. We have installed water fog systems all over the country in different applications including theme parks, water parks, shopping centers, botanical gardens, family entertainment centers, miniature golf courses, haunted houses, hay rides, backyards and swimming pools.
Confetti & Streamers
Orlando Special Effects has all the equipment and supplies needed for confetti and streamers for your special event.We stock a great selection of colors, shapes, and sizes, including both paper and Mylar. We provide complete services from small showers to confetti blizzards and in the colors themed for your event.
Our equipment can unload 25 lbs. of confetti in less than 30 seconds or shoot confettia across a ballroom or arena!Confetti and streamers are great for weddings, gender reveals, graduations, homecomings, sporting events and celebrations of all kinds!
Movie & TV Special Effects
Over the years, we have supported many movie and TV productions from low-budget independent movies, music videos and local commercials to national TV commercials and full length feature films.
We can safely provide pyrotechnics, flames, atmosphere effects, bullet hits, weapons simulations, small and large "explosions", rigging, coordination and 2nd unit direction.
Whatever your budget needs or circumstances are, we can help and make it look great!!
Battlefield Special Effects
We have provided and continue to provide custom designed and engineered simulation and training for our Armed Forces around the country. This equipment has many applications for civilian and other uses in the ongoing training within an urban environment against terrorism and for homeland security. The training associated with our equipment is invaluable in the preparation of our soldiers for the urban battlefield and, ultimately, helps SAVE LIVES of American soldiers.
Among the equipment we offer is our Rooftop Explosion System that incorporates two of our Concussion Cannons that create a 140-decibel boom every second. There is also a Debris System that sends clouds of dust into the air while dropping some small harmless debris on the training soldiers. This effect ultimately ends in a huge 70' fireball.
We also offer a fully automatic weapon simulator. It has the capability of shooting @ 300 rounds per minute and sounds and looks like a 50 cal. weapon firing at you. It is truly amazing and very inexpensive to operate, not to mention safe and very reliable.
Orlando Special Effects builds custom equipment, let us design some for you!
Let our design team create your next themed mechanical effect. From concept to design, our engineers design equipment for ease-of-use and maintenance. Standard Operating Procedure manuals and training for permanently installed equipment is included. We are a phone call or email away for service or help, our follow-up and accountability is second to none!!
