The Big Melt

The Big Melt is undoubtedly one of Magna's most breathtaking features. Heard and seen from almost every part of the building, the show is set around 'E' furnace one of the original electric arc furnaces, unused since the days of Sheffield's booming steel industry.
In a pyrotechnic and audio display powerful enough to shake everything underfoot and overhead, the steel making process is perfectly re-created (except for hundreds of tons of molten steel and of course the melting temperatures!)
The show runs for 12 minutes, at regular intervals during the day.
