Recently Universal Orlando has been testing the VelociCoaster as it continues to inch closer and closer to its grand opening. Now it is being tested with the lights on at night, and it looks INCREDIBLE!

While we continue to wait for an official opening date for this highly-anticipated attraction, new updates like these get us very excited for what’s to come!

Thanks to theme park reporter Midway Mayhem–who has been extensively documenting through video the construction of the VelociCoaster–, we can see the trains fully illuminated as they traverse the coaster track.

Previously, we shared photos of the train cars for the VelociCoaster that gave us an extremely detailed look at the coaster train cars. You can see those photos and read the details here. However, we could not imagine how the lights would look while the VelociCoaster was running at night!

Take a look at this screenshot from Midway Mayhem’s video, which shows clearly that every seat on the coaster train is illuminated. We suspect that the blue color could be a nod to Blue to Velociraptor from Jurassic World, which is, of course, the film this attraction is based on.

In addition to every seat being lit up in the dark, the front of the train is also illuminated! Making this coaster a beautiful addition to the skyline of Island’s of Adventure.
