Roller Coaster Painters

There are certain roller coasters that need no introduction.  Cedar Point’s Top Thrill Dragster is certainly one of those.  So we’ll cut right to the chase, and say we are thrilled to announce that Baynum Painting has been awarded the project to repaint Top Thrill Dragster.  Our team recently arrived to begin surface prep work, and we wanted to share some of the incredible photos.  As you can imagine, a ride this size will take some time to complete, so we’ll be hanging out (quite literally) atop the coaster for several months:

For the 17 second ride cycle, Top Thrill Dragster is one of the greatest adrenaline rushes a person can get.  Now imagine what it’s like spending all day working from the top!  It’s kinda hard to tell in this pic, but there are 2 of our painters working along the right pillar.  The lower one’s fairly easy to spot.  Look waaaay up top in between the top 2 horizontal cross beams.

Here’s a shot from the side, with both painters running pressure washers:
