“Dancing on the Clouds” — A Magical Dry Ice Fog Effect

Enchant your guests with low-lying dry-ice fog. Perfect for that magical “cloud” effect for a couple’s first dance, for adding a mystical touch to performances, for setting that mysterious haunted house vibe, and more.

This is a stunning effect in the moment, and makes for incredible photos! Our high-quality dry ice fog is silent, odorless, and leaves zero residue — completely safe for all fabrics, including delicate wedding dresses. Effect lasts about three minutes and then disappears completely.

Haze — Water-based Mist that Enables Visible Beams of Light

Haze is what makes it possible to see striking beams of light as they cut through the air. Our professional-grade haze is an extremely fine, almost invisible, water-based mist quietly added to the room. It is colorless and odorless, and we use only the absolute best premium water-based haze equipment.

Check this short video below for a vivid illustration of how haze works:


Water Texture

This unique special effect creates a gently animated rippling water texture. Can be set to a variety of beautiful colors.

Excellent for “under the sea” events, poolside ambiance, ice caverns, and more. (When set to orange, it also creates a fairly convincing fire/lava effect!)

Starry Night Effect

Evoke the night sky with this wide wash laser projection featuring thousands of slowly moving tiny blue laser dots over a blue nebula cloud effect.

Combines beautifully with blue uplighting and warm white pin-spots!

Fog Bubbles

Introducing our unique special effect: Fog Bubbles!

This magical effect combines a special fog machine with a bubble machine, sending a steady flurry of big, opaque milk-white bubbles into the air. When the bubbles pop, they disappear instantly with a delightful puff of “smoke.”

Great for parties, themed events, receptions, bar/bat mitzvahs, and more!

Split Beam Uplights


These next-generation uplights add a punchy, eye-catching effect. Colors can be animated and changed. These look great behind a head table, or around your dance floor.

Black-Lights (Professional-Grade)
