How To Love Your Thomas FX Visit

Many people who visit  Thomas FX for the first time are confused by what they encounter, so here are a few tips on how to get the most from your visit and leave loving your Thomas FX experience.

1) Most people need about an hour to experience our store and take in our interactive displays. Please make sure you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy everything.

2) We close our Dark Zone 1/2 hour BEFORE closing each day. The front of our store remains open until the advertised closing time, but it does take us about 1/2 hour every day to restock, clean thoroughly, and turn off all of the animatronics and lights in the Dark Zone so it is ready for visitors the next day. If you arrive too late, you can still shop in part of the store, and our friendly staff will be happy to run back and get anything you have seen online and might be interested in, but access to the Dark Zone will not be possible.

3) We ask that you consume all food and beverages BEFORE entering our store. Some people might be startled by what they encounter inside and might throw up their arms, inadvertently tossing hot coffee or food onto other guests.

4) Very young children can be uncomfortable in our scary environment, and extremely young children in strollers might start crying at some of the loud noises. Please think carefully about whether or not it is a good idea to bring very young impressionable children into our store. Maybe they would enjoy the visit more when they are a bit older.

5) Everyone at Thomas FX will welcome you and engage with you. They are interested in helping you, in answering your questions, and in offering you ideas. Everybody at Thomas FX is in Customer Service. Nobody is in Sales.

Thanks everyone. We listen carefully to all customer feedback and work hard to find new ways to improve our service. We hate it when someone does not have a more than excellent experience when they visit. Hopefully, the ideas and suggestions in this blog might help you to LOVE your Thomas FX experience.

SN-600 Snow Machine From Thomas FX

Thomas FX is very Proud of its SN-600 Snow machine and falling snow system. This is a professional level snow machine with DMX capabilities.

We searched far and wide to find a snow machine and snow system that delivered a high level of performance and reliability.

So far, with many hundreds now in operation around the world, the SN-600 has not let us down.

Manufactured specifically for Thomas FX by one of the world's foremost makers of artificial snow systems, the SN-600 is quickly being adopted be film industry special effects professionals everywhere. Everyone raves about the performance of this equipment.

However, like all professional quality equipment, it does have its Achilles Heel. . . . "operator error". 

Operator error includes: an operator not knowing how to operate the equipment, an operator allowing the fluid reservoir to run dry, an operator using the equipment in environments that are hostile to electrical equipment, an operator failing to clean the machine from time to time, and an operator who puts the wrong kind of fluid into the machine.

With a professional at the controls, and a touch of basic common sense, the SN-600 Snow System will exceed your expectations for years to come.

Thomas FX YouTube Page Is M.I.A.

On Thursday we woke up to discover that the Thomas FX YouTube page was missing.

We have no idea why Google terminated our Channel, but we have reached out repeatedly to Google for help restoring our Channel.

So far Google has not responded to our service requests, although we did receive an automated email response acknowledging our request for help.

Our sincerest apologies to everyone for our YouTube Channel being crashed. We will resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, here is an excerpt from a recent entry in our G mail account:

Dear Places for Business user,
We're making some changes to Google Places so that we can continue to provide people with the best experience when they're looking for local businesses on Google.
As part of this process, we reviewed your information in Google Places. While we were able to keep your account, we unfortunately had to remove one or more of your listings. We're really sorry for the inconvenience.
