Color Schemes and parks

Sunday, February 23, 2003 8:10 AM
this may be a dumb or previously asked question, but who controls the color scheme of a coaster? do the designers come up with several different color schemes and then present them to the park getting the coaster, and then the park chooses? or does it involve the park contacting the designers with the colors that they want. also, i know that the parks come up with the ride theming and the name, but do they hire a separate company for queue theming and overall ride themes?

My guess is that the park tells the company what color scheme they want. The coaster company is probably in charge of themeing ON the ride, as in trains and the such.

Parks choose the color scheme of their new rides just like you would choose the color you want when buying a new car.

As for theming, most parks handle that themselves with their Planning and Development departments. There are companies out there that do specialize in ride theming though and they are hired by parks who really want to spend a lot of time and money on details.

You mean they go to a lot full of a certain type of rollercoaster, all completly constructed, pick one out, get the key and drive the coaster home? Wow! Who would have thought?

Right on kingbob... You know, I can see a correlation between a certain Vekoma inverted coaster model and the GM suvs... Same vehicle, different name. :)

I think the park tells the manufactuer the color they want, not the designer

Well, I used to be able to see TTD from my house, then I moved.
Life's not fair.
