I for one would love KD to paint a ride in this color scheme, Ricochet would look awesome painted those colors as it would match its new neighbor Windseeker great! Bring on the aqua and royal blue Cedar Fair!
For the love of humanity no!!All of a sudden I'm having nightmares about seeing anaconda painted in these colors yuck!!!
Kings Island has sent us a high resolution photo of Invertigo's re-paint work along with this info:
Work has begun on giving the Invertigo roller coaster at Kings Island a new paint scheme. The track will be painted aqua with royal blue supports. Invertigo has given 7,648,847 rides since its debut in 1999. Its record year was 2000, when 647,837 rides were given.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
Wow. Not surprised though. I remember being blown away by Tomb Raider when it first opened (for an amusement park). The overall ride was intense and the effects were great. I remember riding it 5 times in a row on my first King's Island trip (I LOVE top spins!). When I returned a few years later, after the Crypt transformation, it was such a disappointment. No pre-show, first row chopped off the gondola, no theming/show during the ride and a very weak ride program.
I'm really impressed with Cedar Fair's overall park upkeep. They've done a lot of little things around Canada's Wonderland over the past few years. One of the first things noticed was repairing parts of the mountain and getting the top 2 waterfalls working again. I'm glad that is continuing across the entire chain. It's one thing to add tonnes of new rides but a completely other thing to keep up the old while adding new. I'm sure the new paint job will look great when it's done.
