Lasershow History

 

1983
The Stone Mountain Lasershow Spectacular debuted in 1983 on the world’s largest screen, the 825-foot-tall granite outcropping.

2008
For the 25th anniversary, the sound system and pyrotechnics for the Lasershow were amped up. The music selections were also diversified to match the increasingly diverse audience. Innovative when the show launched, the lasers, over time, began to look elementary.

2011
Mountainvision was launched employing state-of-the-art digital video projection to give the show 3-D-like effects without the need for 3-D glasses. Video opened up a dramatic difference and allowed for new options that the lasers weren’t capable of. Mountainvision can do things like, turn Stone Mountain into a Volcano spewing lava down its sides or the rock crumble right before your eyes. The projection is five times the size of an IMAX screen and taller than the Statue of Liberty! It’s like watching a 5,500-inch high definition TV.

2015
Get ready to feel the heat! Three flame cannons added a punch to the show by sending a trio of flames nearly one-hundred feet into the air.

2017
Two-dozen robotic drones donning lights that sync to music were added to the Drone Wars segment in the show. The Lasershow is now so spectacular, the FAA must be consulted to ensure airplanes don’t become blinded by lasers.
