Dorney Park 2008 - Voodoo

Personally, I'm just bummed that they used the same colors as Wicked Twister. They built me up with the colors on the official Voodoo website ... teal just seemed to come smack out of left field.

The more I think about it, the more I believe the teal supports will be a great fit with these trains:

So now there's teal, yellow, purple (Pepto) pink, and those pale orange and yellow stripes. Sounds almost like the colors that didn't make it in the M&M pick the next color votes. :)

I voted for the purple *sigh*
This looks more like a boardwalk or beach themed color scheme then the black/orange skull logo suggests.

The teal does seem to go with the yellow and pink but definitely does not match with the Voodoo logo. Teal is a relaxing color. The pink and yellow are happy, beachy colors. Together= bad color choice for a ride that is supposed to "possess" you.

Justice (purple)
Faith (green)
Power (gold)

Makes sense to me.

^I wonder if CF themselves even realized that in order to elaborate the "theme" or did they just choose the colors at random and happen to land on it.

I'm thinking that since the Dorney PR guy who writes the Voodoo blog said they "finally knew" (or something similar) the colors of Voodoo's supports only when he took photos of the pieces arriving in their lot ... well ... I'm thinking that corporate probably made those choices.

The odd part is that it's my understanding that the ride websites are done through corporate as well - so where the disconnect took place I don't know.

eightdotthree's avatar Or the PR guy has nothing to do with picking ride colors, or maybe he knew and was pretending to not know so he could reveal it in a later blog entry.

I don't think people at the park make decisions when it comes to colors of new rides.

rollergator's avatar With a name like Voodoo, there is NO chance that the colors were a "happy accident". Corporate MAKES the decisions, but I'm sure more than a few people at the park know in advance.

"Those who know, can't tell"....or something. ;)

Jason Hammond's avatar There's a new blog entry, and new pictures. The scale mold of the Voodoo logo is prety cool. It would be cool to be able to have that after they were done with it. Turn it into a hood ornament or something. ;)

It also looks like most of the footers are done at this point. The webcam images aren't great, but you can certainly make out where the ride will be exactly.

I'm more excited for Dorney to expand Halloweekends into The Haunt at this point I think.

WOW, each one of those bolts costs 20 bucks? No wonder these rides are so expensive

(sorry, I just had to)

Seeing a completed seat frame, I don't think I've ever seen such a mishmash of colors. And when you combine it with the rest of the ride, it should be interesting to say the least to see how it all looks at the end.

i don't know why ppl are complain about the colors and stuff... look on the main voodoo page: http://www.dorneypark.com/public/inside_park/rides/thrill_rides/voodoo/
you can see part of the ride.. it looks good it looks fun to ride why complain... it costs alot of money to build one of these rides just be thankful for a new ride. also there are some new pictures on that site as well as a new blog.

I think that the Mardi Gras colors are according because what doe Mardi Gras and Voodoo have in common.....

New Orleans.

At least I tried to find an reason why they are these colors.


Bolliger/Mabillard for President in '08 NOT Dinn/Summers

Seth, I have no complaints with the ride itself. I've ridden it already at its old home, and I've ridden V2 at SFGAM and Wicked Twister at CP. They're awesome and a lot of fun. I wouldn't argue that it costs a lot of money to build a ride, even if its used.

But, from what I've seen so far this is violating the common practice of sticking to a few colors when painting a roller coaster. Two or three colors is usually plenty enough. And the trains usually match up to the roller coaster. I just think it's going to look messy in the end. Who knows, I could be wrong.
