    Sky Thriller
    Epic Fireworks

    Average Selling Price: £15

    Type: Rocket

    To start of, I also contribute to Epic's Blog under the name "Moonlight Shadow." I am not paid or employed by Epic, but thats my relationship with them, so this review is posted with that disclaimer.

    Sky Thriller! A big, powerful and loud rocket. It bursts with a lovely golden lingering burst, which hangs in the air for a couple of seconds, and has a large spread. Exactly what is needed from a top of the range rocket. Duration of course does not rival a cake, but it doesn't try to. This is a rocket for people who like the big single effects, and general overall impressive performance. Would be excellent used in angled multiples, as well.

    Several together would make an excellent finale.

    Well recommended.

    Footage is my own, shot July 2011.

    Think I am also going to open a King-Dom rocket pack and get the King out of that pack too as thats another great rocket so it really will be the battle of the 3 kings and the Sky Thriller :)

    I actually think the middle sized rocket in the Kingdom pack is the nicest one (and similar to Sky Thriller!)
  10. Looking at this video, the sky thriller looks very similar to the new King video I've seen. Can't wait for your video of the rocket battle Nigel.. xx :D

    Ok..so this is going to be:

    King (2004)


    King (2010 - KingDom pack)


    King (2011)


    Sky Thriller

    Have I got it right ?

    If the 2004 King doesn't win I reserve the right to shuffle into the corner and weep.
  12. Mike the mod, I can't see the others beating the original King (mass respect) but if in some weird dimension thingy they do, I think I will join you. xx ;)

    Pretty sure we know which the winner will be, however i'm just hoping that we'll be surprised on how little the difference will be between the new and old King... here's to hoping :p

    The sky thriller is a great rocket, if you cannot strech to the original King (The best rocket ever) or the new king by brothers then i am sure you will not be dissapointed!!!

    Well Ive got all the rockets for the ROCKET BATTLE ! but I am just too tired today to set them off so it will have to be Thursday night now, plus that way I can also set off and film the Noble from RP.
    Just wondering where to film them from as want to leave camera in same place each time without having to zoom in or out so we get a proper fair review.

    It really doesnt look that great but i suppose you have to see it in person if you want to know its true effect and noise.

    I've tried the new King and the Sky Thriller, and to be honest there's not a lot between them. As Sky Thriller is about £10 cheaper, I'll not bother buying The King again.
