Carowinds to host Memorial Day LED light extravaganza
Posted by Birddog Lighting on May 20th 2011
Carowinds, one of the most popular amusement parks in the United States, is putting the finishing touches on its LED light show. The Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular is a nighttime walk that uses almost 60 miles of energy-efficient LED light strands to create a one-of-a-kind family-friendly experience.
The show is a symphony of lights and sound that is meant to be a family-friendly way for park patrons to spend an evening. The light show was designed by world-renowned lighting designer Andrew Strain, who has created award-winning lighting displays in California, New York and London.
"I was able to go crazy," Strain said. "It's a show for families, so I had a lot of freedom to use as much color and movement as I could, and I had a blast doing it. I created a light show the whole family can walk through and enjoy – something which adds to the overall park experience."
LED decorative lighting isn't just reserved for amusement parks. Homeowners can use LED rope lights to spruce up their homes for summer parties. They come in a wide range of colors and are encased in durable PVC pipe to endure the elements.
