    It was a light that was on a string the was moved around between two posts. I only saw it a couple times. I think it was a Tink test.

    Yeah, if you watch the light as it finishes it's run, you can see it come to a complete stop and start lowering. (at least in the video I have) I always figured it was just a mechanism hooked to the tinkerbell zip-line. Probably a similar mechanism to the one they use now to fly the "real" tinkerbell around.
