I'll agree that Magnum is the best. ;) But I was hoping to see it get a paintjob. Nothing really looks good about pinkish orangish track and rusting silver supports. :( Mantis probably did look worse, but Magnum is definitely deserving of a paintjob as well.
I definatly have to agree that Mantis needed a paint job more then Magnum (there is just something about BMs that make them look horrible with old paint). When I went last year Magnum didn't look *too* bad but I do think that it will be due for a paint job after this season. When was the last time Magnum got painted?
------------------ I don't care what anyone says, Magnum is better then Millenium Force.
In my opinion Magnum really doesn't look that bad. If you were at the point last year you would know that Mantis looked just awful. I guess that Arrow used a much higher quality paint that B&M used on Mantis.

I'm pretty sure you are right MagnumForce. Although they have repainted a very small portion of the ride from the station out to the lift hill and also they've done the air tanks out on the transfer table.
Mantis does look wonderful, it's Wildcat that I'm not so sure about-yikes, it was quite a shock! When asked back in '02 about Mantis' paint, Monty Jasper mentioned he didn't know why the paint did not hold out. As for me, I was estatic in '01 when my "baby" finally got it's paint job :) And Matt-shut the **** up!! ;)
