Great Nor'Easter (and Sea Serpent, the boomerang at Wildwood) are white because every other color gets faded VERY quickly by the salt water breezes blowing in. You'll notice that most large metal structures, like coasters, are white at boardwalks. Cheaper in the long run for the owners to not have to paint the ride every two seasons (about how long Nor'Easters pink paint lasted).

There aren't enough words in the english language to make a comment rude enough

Silver Bullet? The track nor trains are silver, and red/yellowish orange don't sit in too well with the ghost town theme.

Orange paint from last year.

Why is it Knott's can't get enough of orange paint?

Not for sure if anybody posted the Boomerang at WOF so here it is. If they have that should be ok since it is so bad it deserves to smashes. It is by far the ugliest coaster I have ever seen. To cap it off, it now has faded which makes it even better!

Shockwave may be ugly, even though I thought it got a new coat of paint. I have heard from alot of people that Shockwave at Drayton is actually a ride worth riding, not because of the standup bit, but because of it being I think the first standup ever built by Intamin and the reason I say Intamin is because for the first few standups made were made by Intamin because B&M were employees for a time at Intamin. Which brings the fact that the first few standers were made by Intamin.

 

Got it? GOOD!

I'm sure it's been mentioned here before, but I think the ugliest coaster ever is Spiral Coaster @ Al-Sha'ab Leisure Park http://www.rcdb.com/ig1604.htm

 

Has anybody here ever been on this thing or see it in action? I've always been curious about it, especially the fact that I see nothing the helps aid the cars back to the station.

The last picture shows some kicker wheels on the first inline twist. I can't believe it's actually an Intamin ride. It looks like an early prototype of the arrow Pipeline coaster.
