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.


Stay tuned to our blog for updates over the next several days as the project progresses.  And check out for more info on our team of amusement ride painters, ready and willing to go around the world for our clients.

Painting an icon – Coney Island New York’s famous Cyclone

The world’s most famous roller coaster – Coney Island Cyclone – at Luna Park New York, is receiving some special attention this month from Baynum Painting’s crew.  Over the past several weeks, our 40,000 PSI water jetting / hydro blaster has been on-site, with the Baynum team working hard at prepping and removing 88 years of worn paint coatings and corrosion.  Now that the surface prep is nearing completion, the iconic ride is beginning to show signs of it’s bright new white coating.  PPG’s ultra-durable Amercoat primer is being applied currently, with the glossy new topcoat of PSX ONE coming soon.

We have been especially excited to share this news, as the landmark roller coaster is a favorite, and we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ride’s renovation.

Local photographer Jim McDonnell has been taking outstanding in-progress pictures, and shooting some incredible time-lapse footage that we can’t wait to share once the repaint is complete.

Stay tuned for frequent updates as the project progresses – and thanks to everyone involved in making this one happen!
