I guess I was being abit too general. Your right I know some good christians and it is the ones that go out of their way to cause trouble for things like this that bother me. Other ones that bother me are ones that say I'm no good because I don't believe in things that I should and ones that try to convert me. So my apologies to all the decent christians on the board.
So, I was just looking at some pics of Voodoo at Dorney.
The yellow track pieces look to me to be brand new. Does anyone else think so? When they paint existing coasters, the "wheel stripes" usually go away. But, the yellow pieces of track definitely have pure white "wheel stripes".
What do you all think? If they're new, do you think they reprofiled them in some way to prevent whatever "accident" happened before from happening again?
The yellow pieces are repainted track segments. If you look at the "wheel tracks" they are not pure-white, but have usuage already in them.
The reason they still look pretty new is the fact that they are essentially the bottom of the track, where the wheel doesn't make the most contact. The otherside will have more wear than that side as all the wheel pressure is exerted on it.
Ok, so maybe pure white was the wrong choice of words. But, the wheel stripes on the yellow pieces definitely look virgin. They're way lighter than the wheel stripes on the red tracks. Plus, I'm not sure why they would go through the effort of taping off those stripes if the track was just repainted.
I wish we had closer pics of the yellow track. To me, all four of those pieces look brand new.
Also, if they were repainted in transit to Dorney, why weren't all of the track sections painted in transit? Why bring some in red and paint others? That doesn't make sense to me.
Maybe, they will have different colors for segments of track. They look brand spanking old to me. You can see those stripes on the red track too.
I always thought that half of the track for Two-Face should be black, and the other part white, or they could have done it like the Batman Forever movie. I think it was purple, and white. By half the track I mean separated by the middle of the track. One rail is white, and the other one is black. It would look so freaky, and cool.
Even repainted it would be extremely useful to keep the wheel tracks. They aren't there for aesthetics, they are there to keep the paint from cracking and chipping off the running rails due to wheel friction and forces.
