Florida Theme Park Visitors Dazzled With Snowfalls


NOW OPEN! – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort  / Grand Opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort set for June 18

SnowMasters snow effects help provide a one-of-a-kind magical adventure for The Wizarding World Of Harry PotterTM. Snow effects for the Orlando resort’s special effect applications took into account mechanical integrity throughout pre-production and installation to include; aesthetics, technical feasibility, proper machine placement, movement, snow flake size configuration and budget.

Company owner and former magician Francisco Guerra once needed a special snow effect for a trick on his show “The Magic of Francisco” in South Florida. Since it was an indoor venue the only option was to use some type of artificial snow that would not be hard to clean up – which did not exist at the time – he invented a new snow effect, Evaporative Snow®. This new special effect of snow that "wowed" audiences and then almost magically disappeared has seen continued demand at events and attractions.

SnowMasters Special Effects is headquartered in Northern Alabama with factories nestled in the rolling hills just west of NASA’s Rocket City. Their production facilities create fake snow-making machines, snow ground blankets, snow flocking equipment and faux icicles. Although SnowMasters is known for quality snow machines, their visionary, innovative team always has something new in their hat…and it’s not a white rabbit.  They offer bubbles, fog, scents, mist, cryo, smoke, foam, haze, Flogos® and more.
