The new color certainly stands out more. I like it. Thanks for the pictures.

The new colors do stand out, but I think that blue and orange has been used to many new rides.

It looks altogether a happier ride. :)
Are they going to re-name it Dayhawk?

Colors look pretty SLCey, I would have prefered darker shades, but this is definitely an improvement...seeing the red from Stealth underneath the green was probably a big hint that a paint job was long overdue.

I would have liked the spine to be a different color like it was with Borg but it looks awesome.

I was a little worried when i heard it was going to be yellow but the shade of yellow used looks great and the whole ride will brighten up that area of the park.

That is a pretty good little transformation. Maybe they will add music and fire effects..... Anyway, in all seriousness, it looks really good, works well with the color of the supports, and really stands out nice.

Thought "Laser Snake Horse" was real.

I agree with a lot of people saying that the colors are used a lot, cause they really are, but it brightens up that part of the park and makes it look friendlier. Before, it looked kind of decadent and almost rustic and now it really looks brighter and more open. I like it
