My dream is Silver Bullet to be repainted.... Silver. It would look so much more subtle than that obnoxious orange.

Aside from it's obnoxious all-red lift hill, I absolutely love Silver Bullet's color scheme. I can think of 5 other coasters in the park I'd rather see painted a different color before Silver Bullet.

So now that Monte is about finished, that means every coaster in the park has been re-painted in the last 5 years... except Xcelerator. Is there an actual reason they are keeping it that super faded pink? I don't buy the "it's too difficult to paint" reason, considering Cedar Point was able to repaint Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster.

This had me thinking...

If they were to repaint Xcelerator, how would they be able to paint the Top Hat? There's probably a way but the fact that it doesn't have a catwalk on top (or whatever it's called that Kingda Ka and TTD have) makes it seem very difficult.
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.

This is just me thinking out loud, but I'm sure they could put a crane in that small backstage area or, if they needed to, close off part of the road behind it for a large crane. It probably is more difficult than most coasters, but I wouldn't label it as impossible. I guess the day Xcelerator gets re-painted is also the day Tatsu gets re-painted ;)

Personally, I like the faded pink. Just seems so 50's California to me.

I like Xcelerator's color scheme. It doesn't look that bad in person. Not a fan of the orange paint on Montezooma but new paint is always good.
