Six Flags St. Louis Screamin Eagle getting some paint! White

Postby sixflagstloldschool » Fri Jan 27, 2006 1:03 pm

I have posted a picture of the eagle getting a much needed paint job, you can see the contrast of the new paint on the first hill after the drop going in to the camel back run. The hill is painted but the camel back is still being fitted with new lumber in places down to the turn and on around, also the break run has new paint also.

Looks like she will be all white for the parks 35th Anniversery!

Let's just hope the other Eagle (American Eagle) gets new paint too... it's celebrating its 25th anniversary this year- hopefully they'll spruce it up and redo the trains!

You can say that again!

Wow, I forget how much better a simple coat of paint can help a coaster's look.

It's also the 20th anniversary of the Ninja-remember, it started life as the Scream Machine at Expo '86.

Yeah, I also heard that they got a new control panel for the Screamin' Eagle...that means a new braking system and that means no more sudden stops at the end! It's going to be like a whole new coaster again! :b
