In addition to the RGB LED lights, which are customizable to up to 16 million different shades of color, World of Illumination’s Candy Rush also showcases hundreds of animated displays. One such display — a 40-foot tall trio of candy canes — is being installed by crane. When completed, it will be the most massive candy-cane structure in the world!
