Here are my pics from yesterday. Didnt take any professional camera up. Just with my S9+. Plus, was a little bumpy. Watermarked because some people. And these definitely are "exclusive". 

Why wait?

Anyone that does not work at the park or in the industry is the GP.

I think people will be very happy with the final light package!

 

If it shines 100,000 lumens at the bedroom windows of the noise complainers I certainly will be ecstatic.

I guess that answers our question about Orion having the same LED strip that Fury 325 has on it’s lift hill. 

Im not disagreeing with you but If this is true about Orion Not having the LED Strip, I wonder what this was:

I actually prefer this to an LED strip. It illuminates the track and the the supports almost like a runway of sorts and reminds me of traditional lift hill lights.

Then, in my opinion, they should be trailing lights.

This is a interesting comment I saw on Reddit of that picture f597041a38cf0554d00b44ace78b57f2.jpg
If that’s anyone on here please say so lol.

Yes, that's me...and I stand by my statement. :P

They could’ve been testing LED flood lights to illuminate the support structure and the bottom of the track on the lift hill. I was referring to the LED strip along the catwalk railing on the lift hill.

I think these are maintenance lights of sorts. Fury has similar lights running along the handrails along with the LED light strip. This is probably just a test and the rest of the light kit will be installed in the coming weeks.

Assuming that these are not the official lighting package lights (Maybe maintenance lights since you would need them to light things up safely) I think it would be really cool if there are LEDs running the lift like Fury, but instead of being a solid line the light up animated from top to bottom to create a meteor shower effect

Do semis usually drive down I-Street?

When I worked there, before the expansion, they would use a back road. Only flat beds was usually on the pathways, or the pressure washing truck

Random but does anyone think the conronavirus outbreak will affect attendance come April?  I’m not personally worried about the virus at all but we all know it’s been all over the news.  I’ll be there regardless April 18th with my fast pass!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I remember shortly after the lift hill was finished I saw a blue LED strip on the hill. To my knowledge, they haven't used it since last year.

Was it running along side of the lift hill catwalk?

In the latest pictures Waltny posted to Instagram, it looks like there might be an LED strip running along the left side of the lift. It didn’t appear to be part of the catwalk, but I might just be getting my hopes up!

No, it was not on the catwalk. It was on the other side facing the rest of the park.

And I am not talking about those lights either. This was a blue LED strip, not spotlights on the supports.

If we did get an LED strip and it is like Fury325, then it will be ON the catwalk, facing the park.
We've seen pictures with lights on the lift that resemble the standard catwalk lighting as seen on Diamondback, however. [for Orion]
 

325 does appear to also have the more standard lighting for evening evacuations/ maintenance but.. I'm not certain.
