The Mesmerizing Sky Ladder Is One Of The Coolest Fireworks You’ll Ever See

I’m going to go out on a limb and say you’ve probably never seen a firework like this before…. right?! It’s called the Sky Ladder, a pyrotechnic artwork created by artist Cai Guo­-Qiang. A giant balloon pulled a 1,600 foot ladder coated with burning fuses and gold fireworks up into the night sky at Huiyu Island Harbour, Quanzhou, China.


Guo­-Qiang has been developing the idea of a burning ladder every since he was a child… 21 years later and his dream finally came true. Once the firework was lit it lasted roughly 2 minutes and 30 seconds, leaving behind a fiery ladder that looked to be reaching into the heavens.



Here’s the balloon that was used


The video is really cool
