The Blastenheimer 5000 Ultra Cannon is one of the attractions of the Darkmoon Faire. The ultra cannon can blast players into the air, giving them a fun ride. The cannon was most likely created by its cannoneer Maxima Blastenheimer and named after her.


When you talk to cannoneer Maxima Blastenheimer she will explain the workings of the cannon to you.

In short: to get a launch, right-click the cannon to activate it. You will be loaded into the barrel, the cannon is aimed and off you go. During the flight you will get a Spell magic featherfall.pngMagic Wings buff which (in theory) ensures a soft landing.

The Target

Near the end of the flight there is a target floating in the water. For extra fun you can try to drop yourself inside that target. Right click the Wings buff icon to remove the wings and drop. On hitting the water or the ground you will get a Spell nature acid 01.pngTouchdown! buff for one second.

Landing close to the target will give you a buff that lasts for one hour. The buff has no effect apart from showing your accomplishment. Different buffs are given depending on the distance to the center of the target:

  • Inv misc map02.pngPoor Shot! Your latest attempt at the cannon landed you near the target area. Better luck next time!
  • Ability hunter snipershot.pngClose! Your latest attempt at the cannon was close to the center, but not close enough.
  • Ability hunter focusedaim.pngBullseye! Your latest attempt at the cannon was dead on!

Riding the wings all the way to the end will put you down relatively safely.
