KCL Engineering to Light Marquee Coaster

East Rutherford, NJ – KCL Engineering created a new gold standard for roller coaster lighting with its first coaster lighting project back in 2016. Over the past two years, KCL has continued to push the limits of coaster lighting with projects in California and Oregon. KCL Engineering is thrilled to announce its newest lighting concept will be installed at the indoor Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park at American Dream. This will be the first indoor and east coast application of the KCL Roller Coaster Lighting System. The American Dream project, located in East Rutherford, New Jersey (4.5 miles away from the Lincoln Tunnel) is expected to be the largest indoor theme park in the western hemisphere when complete. Included in this ambitious project is a Launched Euro-Fighter style coaster with a 60 mph launch and a 141-foot vertical lift that rises above the park into a section of raised roof to glimpse New York City. It will be a thrilling attraction and look amazing with a KCL light package. The complete lighting effects system will create a unique experience that syncs to music and other external inputs, displaying a thrilling light show for those riding the coaster, walking through the theme park, and even people miles away in New York City. KCL’s exceptional lighting system is yet another element that will differentiate American Dream from any other project in the world. (photo credit: Martin & Vleminckx)
