By request of the Anaheim Fire Dept, POTC is equipped with a system that, in the event of an actual fire, automatically shuts down the authentic "burning town" effect found at the end of the ride, so that firefighters can pinpoint the real blaze and not waste time battling artificial flames.

Show effect, lighting and animation are turned of on every attraction in the event of a fire alarm. - JungleBum  1017.0 #182 8:42PM
Don't know why but I found this to be very funny. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - KermitFan13  653.7 #306 7:14PM

I love learning about operational and design stuff like this. Thank you for sharing. - Bibba  461.4 #471 7:22PM
One time my wife and I were on POTC and we got to experience it. The attraction was running and the burning town was all dark. Pretty weird to see that. - santeemouselover  370.0 #617 7:24PM

I wonder if they learned this from experience... - SPandEvLover  4530.4 #29 8:10PM
I was on potc one time when a fire alarm went off above in NOS. It is true! The fire scene at the end was off when we went through! - Echoingecho  134.2 #2977 8:11PM
i will say the "burning town" effect is soooo awesome and looks authentic! This effect should be used to an Opera production,,,, example is the finale of Wagner's Gotterdammerung, when the Gibichung Hall and Valhalla was consumed by fire after the sacrificial death of Brunhilde (sorry, just watching and listening to an Opera right now, for relaxation) - otilegna  2668.5 #48 8:30PM
Thank you the interesting fact Captain! - grumpypapa  5469.2 #19 8:35PM
