Painting a Hair Raiser in Sydney Australia

Baynum Painting’s team is known for going above and beyond for their customers, so when the good folks at Larson International contacted us with an opportunity to repaint one of their  40 meter tall Super Shot Drop Towers, we were all for it!  No one has painted as many amusement park ride towers as Baynum Painting, so this would be no problem.  “Which park is it at?” we asked…  (Here’s a hint, look just above at the top left of their ferris wheel)

So now a short time later our crew is working on the ride known as Hair Raiser, located in Sydney Australia’s Luna Park.  This beautiful park sits on the Sydney Harbor, right across from the famed Opera House.  What a gorgeous view from the top!

The Hair Raiser’s peak is only accessible by rigging our Spider Staging suspended scaffolding, the likes of which Baynum Painting’s team has logged tens of thousands of hours working from over the years.  Seen here is the crew applying a full prime coat of PPG’s Amerlock 2 Epoxy, to be followed by their ultra durable Amershield polyurethane finish in a beautiful new deep blue color, sure to look spectacular once complete.

Gel Coating water slides

Water park ride surfaces are subjected to some of the most brutal conditions in the amusement industry.  From harsh UV exposure, submersion in chlorinated water, and near constant guest traffic during peak season, it’s no wonder these rides end up looking so tired and worn out!  gel coat before after

A key component to maintaining not only a water slide’s aesthetic appeal, but also it’s functional integrity – comes from the regular inspection and restoration of worn out fiberglass surfaces, via gel coating.

From sand-blasting and stripping off previously applied coatings along with the original top layer of factory finish, to properly cleaning and preparing the surface for it’s new top coat, there are many important steps required in order to achieve a beautiful and long lasting finish that can proudly be displayed for years to come.

Baynum Painting has 30+ years of history as the amusement industry’s premier coating specialist, and contacting our team of composite coating experts is the best choice you can make when it’s time to maintain your slides and rides.

Painting a giant frisbee – Delirium at Kings Island

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!
