That's not lighting on the one set of pics.. It's teh cable braking system and the contol box for them. I'll post closer ones a little later that I took when CP's was still being built..

And someone once asked me what the Yellow cable is for. It's the power cable that charges the onboard batteries that power the sensors, the chair rotation controls.. and the Motorola 100 channel encrypted RF Modem that allows the control panel to talk to the ride.

I went to MM last saturday and the lines at Goliath are half an hour on a weekday and roughly 2-3 hours long on the weekends seeing as how X was only testing the morning I went(saturday) and was not open the entire day until they started testing it again in the evening. I am going back next week friday so we will see if X is a little more consderate and operating lol.
