Flamethrower Shooting Gallery Most Dangerous Interactive Installation on the Playa

The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery was a big success at Burning Man 2008.

I asked DaveX (head of fire safety for the Burning Man organization) for his view and Dave said:
"... heard nothing but good things about how you guys ran it, and I think it's the most dangerous thing out there."
Thanks Dave!

The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery was the only installation on the playa that combined horizontal flame effects with liquid fuel and was controlled by participants. The fire safety team measured the facial skin temperature on shooters at 130 degrees Fahrenheit  while the flamethrowers were in action.

This photo shows some shooters getting ready to fire with the assistance of the Range Safety Officers.
