Also in the Display is the 500 foot long Niagara Falls, plus The WALL OF FIRE just preceding this will be RED, WHITE, & BLUE FIREBALLS and GHOST MINES that consists of a proprietary LIQUID FLAME EFFECT. A live appearance of THE CHIEF, and it is all timed to music that will be simulcast on 106.7 FM/The Fox.
