A crew from Discovery Channel Canada visited Baynum Painting’s team recently while busily painting the Top Thrill Dragster coaster at Cedar Point. The clip will air during a segment for their Adrenaline Junkies on Daily Planet series. The awesome 5 minute clip has some incredible behind the scenes footage of the ride as it gets repainted, check it out:
Thank you Discovery Channel Canada, and everyone who was involved in putting this awesome project together!
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:
How about that view from the top!? Stay tuned for updates, progress reports, and additional details as the project moves forward – and don’t hesitate to contact us at Baynum Painting with questions, or for more information.
For several weeks Baynum Painting’s team has been in Sandusky OH at Cedar Point, working on the famous Mantis coaster, which is undergoing the exciting transformation into Rougarou for 2015. It’s bright new color scheme, using PPG’s excellent PSX700 product, is looking fantastic.
Here’s an awesome news video from Cleveland’s own Leon Bibb (ABC New 5) discussing the repaint, it’s worth checking out! (Click Here to watch)

Just in time for the park’s exciting 2014 opening, Baynum Painting’s team has completed a repaint of the giant frisbee ride structure known as Delirium at Kings Island. We think the 137′ high ride looks excellent with it’s glossy new coat of color, and can’t wait to ride it along with the freshly painted Bat, Xtreme Skyflyer, and Banshee this weekend!
