Top Thrill Dragster

There is a "Christmas Tree" of lights adjacent to the launch track.  These lights are configured just like those seen at a drag racing start line, with three pairs of yellow lights illuminating prior to a green pair of lights indicating that the race has begun.  The light sequence leading up to the launch is also duplicated by the massive lights on the tower, two of which are seen in this picture, although they are not lit up this late in the ride cycle.  The lower walkway also has a high-intensity strobe light, an FAA requirement for a structure as tall as Top Thrill Dragster.
