Anything to jazz up that section of the park. It was completely dead looking. I'm all for it. ----------------- "Conviction is a luxury for those who sit on the sidelines"-A Beautiful Mind(best film of 2001)
all things considered, don't be too surprised if PP doesn't get a new name to go with its new coat of paint. Got to see it last time in SoCal, Oct. '00, but it wasn't running. ----------------- PoTP acolyte - remove fear to reply Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!
It looks really cool from Ghostie's lift if you look back... all calm colors throguhout the park, then an explosion of Bommerang Blue, Hammerhead Greens, Supreme Scream Sea Colors, Sky Cabin Patriotics, those giant VertiGo towers sticking out of the ground, now the new PP Deja Vu-ish colors, and soon the bright pink/orange and green Xcelerator!
I personally think PP looks ungly, especially next to a bunch of patriotic colors. If the green was not soo bright and, well ugly, then I would definitely not mind the colors. At least we know that KBF is not removing PP.
Honestly, I don't understand why they are giving it a new paint job. It's looks OK, I guess, but the question is why. Is this really going to convince people this is not the same ride that the claimed an ignorant woman's life? And someone mentioned that he/she wouldn't be surprised if they gave it a new name, like it would change people from thinking that it's PP. When a girl decided to standup on Timberwolf and go for a fly they didn't change the name, why should they do that here? Stupidity is not a reason to give a ride a new identity. ----------------- S W :) :) S H ====================== Do you bleed blue? BLUES HOCKEY 2002
I saw those lights on "30 Coasters In 24 Hours?" on the brake run and lift hill. Are they black lights or regular lights? ----------------- Six Flags New England loses its "floor" for 2002!!! Visit www.geocities.com/sfneguy for info. about SFNE!!!
The name of the ride is not going to change. Im almost positive on that one. They are just painting it because it was realy in need of a new paint job. There was so many rust stains all over the ride. Realy looked horrible.
sfmmman2001, right AFTER the incident, the park re-painted the lagoon, run-out, and drop. Because of the investigation, the ride just stood there without running water. So basically, the ride already looked good to go for an opening. But why drastically soup it up with a GROSS jungle suited color scheme that IN NO WAY fits the 1920s California Harbor theme the ride carries?
Hey about the rust stains, I thought that kinda looked cool because if you look at Perilous Plunge's theming, isn;t it like a industrial loading dock or a pier of some sort? I thougt that the rust just made it look more "industrial." ----------------- I'm too lazy to put anything here....
