White Track on another Intamin Hyper

In this picture of Expedition G-Force, you can see a part where the track turns from orange to white for a couple of yards. What's the meaning of that?

It's actually gray, not white (haha I'm an ass lol) and when we were there in July they had scaffolding set up next to that piece of track...maybe they're going to paint it so people stop asking "what's up with the non-orange track?"

It tastes like burning.

Someone told me that it had something to do with the theming (?) Never been there myself :(

Perhaps it is to blend in with the supports. If thats not it, I can't think of any reason for them to have that piece white.

Maybe it is to give the illusion that there is a gap in the track that the train must jump.

The entrance is under that gray section. Gotta be the themeing which is, believe it or not, camping! Some pics showed trees on both side of the entrance, a camping site - tent, fire etc.

Then again the park is called Holiday Park...

Hey Taipan, are you sure that the theming is camping? I've never been there but the name says Expedition, of which camping or a camp is part of. I know I've seen pictures of the theming and isn't there a truck or something. So I guess I'm just being nitpicky, sorry.

This also gave me a great idea for a super dissorientating flat ride: Setting up a tent: The Ride. Looks nice and easy, but you soon end up head over heels wondering why the hell you decided to even try it.

Mike (who has no problem setting up his own tent, but don't ask me to set up yours)
