A couple thoughts... Does anyone else find it odd that GL and SFA are painting their SLCs the same colors, when one reason GL was painting theirs was to distinguish it from the Six Flags SLCs? Also, look at the logo on the garbage can... At first, I thought "Why are they using an image of MF with a killer whale, when obviously MF is at CP and the whales and whatnot are long gone? Then I realized it was a wave, not a whale.

I believe it is a similar logo to that which is used at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom.

I think GL was probably just painting the SLC because it looked crappy. I doubt anyone outside the enthusiast community is going to notice if it's similar to a ride a a SF park.
I agree the logo could use some work. :)
I'm really looking forward to visiting the park sometime this season. Bill Spehn seems like someone who genuinely cares about little things. When he was at CP, he was very visible around the park, checking how things were going. I suspect as time goes on, GL will be a park that gets more and more of the little things right.

Looks like Cedar Fair got a special deal on yellow/yellow orange paint the past couple of years.

Looks like a wave to me. I don't know where you get that it looks like a whale.

Thunderhawk really looks weird now when you see it in person.

By the way, SFA's is painted with a darker reddish orange on the pillars, and the track is yellow. Thawk is bright yellow pillars, and bright orange track. different.
