Roller coaster painters practice their specialty at Cedar Point

Posted Thursday, October 2, 2014 12:06 PM | Contributed by Jeff

As a paint crew supervisor for Baynum Painting Inc. of Newport, Ky., Andrew Million has helped spruce up more than 200 coasters across the country since 2000. Personally, he has painted 30 of the nation’s largest coasters since he joined Baynum in 2006. His crew is currently painting Rougarou at Cedar Point.

Interesting that they use "rollers" to paint rollercoasters. :)

Well, I think they use the Paint Zoom on the S&S rides.

According to their website, they are the exclusive painters of Six Flags.

Just like RMC is exclusive to Six Flags...

That would mean that they're the only ones that paint at Six Flags - the only company Six Flags uses, not that the only place they paint is Six Flags.

This 'exclusive' thing has really become an issue around here. :)

We are the exclusive painters of Six Flags parks = the only painters Six Flags uses.

We paint exclusively at Six Flags parks = you won't see our work anywhere else.

Not sure where the trouble lies with this?

There was no issue on my part with their wording. I just brought it up because it seems like another "exclusivity" that no one really cares about.

I've seen a radio tower being painted and they use rags and wash mits (like you would use to wash a car) dipped in paint, seems like that would also work for a coaster.
