Wow... Agree about Tatsu and Scream's ugliness. I'm guessing a Tatsu paint job would prove difficult and expensive given it's mountaintop-esque location? As for Scream--they really have no excuse there!

 

It's in a parking lot, they obviously don't care about apperance.

I'm surprised Tatsu faded so quickly.

 

So Quickly?

 

It's been in the weather since 2006- original paint, anything painted that has endured the sun/rain for that long will fade. This is normal.

 

Wow, it's already been there for that long?

Can't believe it either. Going on seven years! I believe Tatsu was done with cheap paint, that's why it looks so bad. Goliath through Tatsu I believe all used the cheap stuff.

 

Back in 2008, I think it was Tim, said it cost them $800,000 alone to use the "10 years guaranteed paint" for X2. They probably saved a couple hundred grand per ride using crappy paint back in the early 2000's.

There's a decent chance Tatsu might get some paint, simply because it's partially in the same area as YOLO. They always try to spruce up the areas around new rides, so it looks good for the media day cameras and all that.

I know I have my head out over my skis here, but is there any chance that we can just have the name Full Thr0ttle read as it is typed (not YOLO)? I get the joke, I understand the humor disclaimer, but it seems like you should be able to to post/discuss one of the most unique additions of 2013 without a word filter snagging it.

 

In any case, it does seem like that loop will REALLY change the skyline of this park.....obviously the supports of Tatsu did quite a bit to the entrance "look", but it seems like this is one of the biggest visual additions (even from a distance) to the park since....when, Superman?

I get what you're saying, but to be fair I think the r-i-n-g-s filter was added while Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was under construction, right? And I'd say that was a unique and highly anticipated addition to USO when it opened. So it's not like this is the first time a filter's been put into place for a new ride. Personally I like coming onto TPR and reading "YOLOcoaster" instead of "F-u-l-l Throttle".

 

But I do agree about the loop. Even though most of us (myself included) would like to see something that isn't a gimmick, at least YOLOcoaster will be nice to look at! I'm going to enjoy taking photos of it once it's open!
