Jaguar- Painted at Night

What do you do when a ride needs a brand new look but the park is open to visitors? We paint at night! Jaguar at Knotts Berry Farm got a complete color makeover while guests still enjoyed it during the day! Painting at night has it’s own set of challenges but Baynum Painting has the experience to do it with ease.

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.

Check out the video below of gel coating specialist Adam Million applying a much needed new finish on a water slide:
