Founded in 1977 by Floyd Rollefstad, Laser Fantasy quickly grew to become a leader the planetarium laser light show market.  The company expanded into many facets of the laser display industry including Theme Parks, Corporate Events, School Tours, and Event Productions.  Over the years trends in the laser industry have come and gone, but Laser Fantasy has always provided top notch laser hardware and outstanding shows.  Following the retirement of the owner, a pair of long term employees started their own companies to carry the Laser Fantasy brand into the future.  The award winning art department is now helmed by Jay Heck under HECK Industries, and the hardware development is lead by Alex Hay under his company Photon Manufacturing.
