Now you can get better visuals of where you are going. This is the first zone where you are eligible to become Super Sonic if you managed to get all seven emeralds in one shot. With Super Sonic, his golden aura will automatically light up the area completely.

This is the part that will time out most players. The trick here is to light the first one, then the fourth one, then the third. Use those platforms to make it through. Lighting the second one will block you in.
