Look Solutions’ Foggers are a Hit on the High Seas

Las Vegas-based Advanced Entertainment Services (AES) has been supplying cruise ships with special effects equipment for the last 20 years, including vessels for the Carnival, Holland America, Costa, Radisson and Crystal cruise lines. AES recently outfitted the Carnival Magic, the newest ship from Carnival Cruise Lines, with Viper S and Power-Tiny foggers from Look Solutions.

“I’ve seen an increase in Look Solutions’ presence on the last few ships we’ve done,” says AES’ Matt Dillingham. “The previous ship we supplied had five or six Tiny Foggers, some Power-Tinys, and a couple of Viper S foggers. Carnival Magic has six Viper S systems and two Power-Tinys.”

Several strong, compact Viper S foggers are used in the ship’s main theater. “Smoke is pumped through a customized delivery system that AES fabricates, to create a wall of smoke that images are projected on,” Dillingham explains. “Other Vipers, custom fitted with air-assist modules we’ve made, are used to create quick blasts of smoke coming out of the stage floor. They essentially create a CO2 jet effect without using CO2.”

He says he chooses Vipers for their “continuous steady output at a very low percentage – they’re the only machines with that capability that I’ve seen so far. I’ve found that all the other machines tend to “puff” the smoke out at less than 10 percent.”

The Power-Tiny units are mounted to flying set pieces in the main theater. “The Power Tinys are perfect for tight spots. These particular units are used to create the effect of smoke coming out of the stack of a locomotive set piece that flies in and out during the show,” he says.

“Everything has been working really well,” Dillingham reports. “I’m very happy with how conservative the units are with fluid – which was a big factor in their selection. Also, the foggers are extremely reliable. The Look machines seem to require less maintenance and repair than other units on the market.”
