I always liked seeing the bright green color scheme but the new royal blue does look striking even if it is a more common paint scheme.

I can't remember ever seeing a roller coaster covered in tarps for a repaint. But I'm happy to see goliath getting some tlc, it did look and sounded pretty bad maintained last time I rode.

I love donkeys more than me.

They must be spraying sections of it, which is rare considering most coasters are painted completely by hand. The blue looks good, almost like an electric blue.

There are certain sections that have to be cut in by hand, but it seems like they might be trying to protect the supports from over spray. I could be wrong, but I don't see why they would spend time (which equals money) on tarping off track.

Baynum for example never does this, because they do everything by hand, even on tall projects like Dragster.
