Those lighted wheels have been on Tatsu since Fright Fest last year. They looked really cool flying through the pitch darkness.

Those look pretty awesome! I can think of a few riders that would look really good at night with those (Dragster!).

Agreed, they would make the station, unload station and brake run look sick while maintenance is replacing brake fins on the launch track.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

These look awesome!

Throw in some underglow lights and you very well may be able to consider these coasters as righteously 'pimped'.

(PS. And I mean this in a good way :lol:)

I feel like coasters where the wheels are above the riders (such as Tatsu) would benefit greatly from these. I think Montu, Batman: The Ride (particularly the SFGAm one) and Nemesis would be perfect for these.
Top 10: 1. Fury 325 2. Steel Vengance 3. El Toro 4. Intimidator 305 5. Lightning Rod 6. Twisted Timbers 7. Wicked Cyclone 8. X2 9. Millennium Force 10. Twisted Colossus

Coaster Count: 243

^ Only thing with the inverts is that the B&M ones tend to have wheel covers but I guess you could run them without the covers?
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland), Phoenix, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Schwur des Karnan

Coasters that interact with the midways seem like a good fit. Picture cedar points Corkscrew during halloweekends at night screaming over the midway with light up wheels
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
