Silver Bullett's paint scheme unique?

Wednesday, July 14, 2004 3:25 AM
I'm not talking about the colors, per se, but the way the track is painted. I'm still not sure what color the supports will be(red?) but it looks like the rails and underside of the track is red, the top side of the track is red, and the sides are yellow. Has there ever been another coaster to have this(color a on top and bottom, color b on sides), and dang they need to make this as well as other paint options available on RCT3D!

The lift hill track and supports are all red, and the rest of the ride will have grey supports with red/yellow track.

And yes, there has been another coaster to have a track paint setup like that (color a on top & bottom, color b on the sides) - Cedar Fair's prior-to-Silver Bullet's Dorney Park Talon. http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery735.htm?Picture=18

Weird, didn't know Talon was like that. When did they change it?

Yep, Cedar Fair has a thing with 2-tone track paint schemes on inverts, I guess, because now, Raptor, Talon, and Silver Bullet have 2-tone track. The only other coaster to feature 2-tone track that isn't in a CF chain park is Vortex at PGA, correct me if I am wrong...

The Demon has (or used to have) red rails with black spine. There must be more...

Oh...here's the Vortex:

2-tone = SPINE is painted 2 different colors.

Tie side of the track has one color, where as the other side has another.

Raptor: Tie-Side: Dark Green
Back-Side: Light Green

Talon: Tie-Side: Orange
Back-Side: Yellow

Silver Bullet: Tie-Side: Red
Back-Side: Yellow

Vortex: Tie-Side: Yellow
Back-Side: Purple

(Oops, forgot one coaster)

Mantis: Tie-Side: Red
Back-Side: Yellow

Hmm..in that case, it's a bit tougher. Here's one with multi-colored sections of track: http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1896.htm?Picture=45

(not to mention the splotches of red on the supports from lacerated riders) ;)

Raging Bull at SFGAm has that too. I think alot of coasters have that.

Raging Bull does not have that; its spine is all the same color.

I think the 2 tone track looks cool, but whats with the lift hill being ALL red?? Its somewhat bland and doesnt blend in with the rest...

Nothing really to do with SB, but Shockwave at PKD has an interesting color scheme with the 2 toned rails. *** Edited 7/14/2004 11:10:52 PM UTC by P18***

Actually, on Silver Bullett, the track and back side are both red, the sides of the spine are yellow;).

I see what you mean now...........the lift and track is all red, but after that the supports are grey and the track is red and yellow..........

Know why that did that is beyond me but personally i dont think its attactive. The only other coaster that I know pulled that off is AIR and the doppel looping.
