Does anyone remember The Rock-afire Explosion

Postby SoCalJasonland » Thu Jan 17, 2019 10:04 pm

Does anyone remember The Rock-afire Explosion at Showbiz Pizza? I remember these as a child and sorry they are gone now. They had the best pizza restaurant animatronics ever.

I saw your eyes
And you made me smile
For a little while
I was falling in love

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

There's actually a Rockafire Arcade Bar in Kansas City that opened fairly recently and features some of the original animatronics! I haven't been able to make it over there yet, but a friend has and it looks amazing!

Thanks for all the info. I think I like the original "Confederate Critter Show" name better. How very PC...

"The origins of The Rock-afire Explosion can be traced to Tennessee. In 1977, Fechter sold his first animatronic bear to Magic World in Pigeon Forge. He subsequently created the Confederate Critter Show, a pre-Rock-afire animatronic band, for the East Tennessee theme park. (Fechter has said that part of Billy Bob's "backstory" is that he's a country bear from Tennessee.)"

I'm actually a fan of the company who created the Rock aFire Explosion, Creative Engineering. The Rock aFire Explosion is a truly great show.
