Why are there FOUR yellow/orange/red coasters literally right next to each other? Plus Coast Rider and Pony, that brings the total to 6 out of 9 painted coasters (GR not included) that have the same color palette. Is orange paint just really cheap or something?


I totally get how you feel. But then I sat and thought about it, and maybe they are doing it for consistency? Maybe the Monte/Jaguar/Sierra Sidewinder blob will look a little better with consistent colors as opposed to three different colors? I don't know... it's just a thought.

Let's be real: when they paint Xcelerator's track at some point or another, it will probably be orange. Maybe they can get some Home Depot ads or something.

In my perfect world, I'd say...

1. restore jaguar's track back to dark red and keep the tan supports
2. Restore Zoom back to yellow
3. Repaint Sidewinder to Camp Snoopy colors. Forrest green track with tan supports
4. Leave Bullet as is

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I went to KBF on Monday and I was able to snap an updated pic of Montezooma's Revenge.

I personally think that MR looks amazing by itself, as the orange shade they picked is really pretty and the paint makes MR look new and fresh. However, with all of the other red/orange rides next to MR, it looks kinda weird.

Also sorry for the kinda low quality of this pic- I went with some friends who don't get the chance to visit KBF often, so I didn't want to drag them around so that I could take some pictures.

Life is like a roller coaster- it has its ups, its downs, its heartline rolls, its batwings, its immelmanns, its corkscrews, is pretzel loops, its..... never mind.

The blue cage through the middle of the loop looks even more out of place now. :Pr
