Painting Top Thrill Dragster @CedarPoint

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.

Painting Aquaman Splashdown at Six Flags Over Texas

Here’s another great before and after shot of a ride that Baynum Painting’s crew just completed – Aquaman Splashdown at SFOT.  What a difference!


Painting over a Shark Tank at Newport Aquarium

It’s not every day that a painter looks down off the ladder they’re working from to see something like this:


Just down the street from Baynum Painting‘s office is one of Northern KY’s greatest attractions, the famous Newport Aquarium, whom we were thrilled to do some painting for this month.  While our team is always fully focused on health & safety at the job site, you can bet that the painters were extra careful with their ladder safety and situational awareness on this project!


We had a blast working with the fine folks at the Newport Aquarium, an awesome facility with beautiful attractions.  Be sure to stop by and check it out next time you’re in Cincinnati!

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!

Painting the ride cars for Ragin’ Cajun at Six Flags America

Six Flags America has an awesome spinning roller coaster coming to their all new Mardi Gras section in 2014 known as Ragin’ Cajun.  As we are getting ready to coat the track and ride structure, the roller coaster’s unique spin cars can be seen here getting prepared and painted by Baynum Painting’s team.

Along with the new Zydeco Zinger color scheme, we love the look of this new part of Six Flags America, and can’t wait to visit during the open season!
