Not sure if this has been mentioned but they are preparing to paint Scorcher. It has test paint on the supports both in the traditional purple shade and a new dark red shade. I prefer the purple. Didn’t see any test paint for the track but I imagine they will paint that too. I was surprised because when I asked their director of operations about it he said there were no current plans to paint it. Looks like they’ve reconsider. They’ve also had to do some welding work on some of the track which doesn’t surprise me considering it’s age and the condition of the exposed steel.


It’s about time!!!!

Can I park my donkey here?

Awesome, my vote would be for purple too.

Are you at the park now? Curious about wait times for Twisted Cyclone and how far is the line out of the queue station?

Thanks!

This is good news but I'm wondering how they're going to go about this since they are now open for daily ops.

Another visit to the park today...just had to ride TC again! The park was surprisingly not so crowded today although the threat of bad weather may have played a factor. Lines for the new TC were about 20-30 min, which was surprisingly short.

Another curious observation made near the Goliath - the (never used and not covered) fourth queue area was removed and fenced off for some small project. Could a small flat ride be coming to that area?

Splashwater Falls was still inoperative. I still say the park could refurbish and re-theme that ride to Aquaman and connect the DC theme from the DC Friends area to Metropolis.

It is nice to see the park making continual improvements. Re-painting Scorcher would be huge too.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I mean, I find RMC's trains extremely comfortable.

But at the same time, you cannot expect B&M Hyper or Mack-like trains on RMCs either, considering all the tight clearances and crazy maneuvers their coasters do.
