    Testing high pyro? I haven't seen any alerts for MK'S hotels. They usually let people know if Pyro is going off in the middle of the night.

    They have gobo projections up and down Main St. Or they used to. Did they get cut? We don't go anymore since the price rises aren't worth it now.

    Looks like quite an ending to the British TV Taping yesterday!:

    I can't tell if the pyro was on the MS bulidings or in the usual low pyro spot. If it was on the buildings, might we see that in HEA? That would up the level, kind of like SW: AGS.

    It wasn't gobos last year. They upgraded the lighting package and it was basically a light show set in time to the music. I actually thought it was fantastic.

    Oh dear.

    It used to be the LED lighting package the full length of the street and town square, plus moving mirror gobo projections through the windows onto the opposite buildings. Still in time to the music.

    You are probably right, I haven't been to the party since 2012. I just assumed by 'projections' he/she meant literal projections...not something created by theatrical lighting

    Yeah. They scrapped the gobo projections going from that. Shame.

    Maybe, but I think it had gotten pretty sorry at some point between the time that you are thinking of and now. @KevinYee documented it at sometime in the past. That video from last year looks a lot better than the washed out static lights and possibly no gobos that I remember at my last party in 2011.

    That video has only static lights. Or did I miss something?

    For one of our last parties they'd gone LED and still had moving projections.

    But it saved money by not needing to pay a lighting tech to run the gobo's
