id think they would re-do Superman first with color schemes to match the other Steel Venom or something instead of keeping it Superman red and blue, but this sounds pretty cool, maybe they will remake the sign.
Thunderhawk looks absolutly the worst right now with what paint it has on it. It's in the most dire need of a new paintjob. I assume yellow and orange were going to be the new choice colours, anyway, so why not take the worst looking ride and paint it.
The others will get their chance, but they are not physically the priority.
A paintjob for this is going to run $400,000, it's not feasable to repaint too many things at once.
Heres an arguement: Raptor was repainted before Mantis. (Mantis looked worse) However, Raptor was closer to the main gate, and the park decided to repaint it first for more first-impression (first major ride seen through the gate) reasons. (Plus, the ride was two years older and was in the budget that year.)
sometimes a new color scheme may be better...I mean i since 1991/2 The sky Princess at Dutch Wonderland was pure white, being painted every 2 years, Hershey took over 3 years ago and the ride was not painted in 4...This year she's going from pure white to light blue supports and dark purple tracking

Change may be good...
Maybe Knott's will get a clue and apply that theory to Silver Bullet. 'Let's create a coaster, with old west theming, an old west name, and paint it bright red and yellow, and the trains will be the same, except with pink and teal.' Brilliant.
Makes as much sense as a hot rod-themed coaster with coral-colored track! Still, there is something very lively and colorful about Knotts and I can appreciate that even if the colors aren't very logical.
