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 baynumpainting.com for more info on our team of amusement ride painters, ready and willing to go around the world for our clients.
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.
We are thrilled to have had a hand in getting this record-breaking dive coaster ready to fly. Make sure you check it out this summer!
Painting at indoor water parks is a unique and challenging experience but it’s nothing Baynum Painting can’t handle with a team skilled in climbing and rigging experience. Here’s some interesting pictures that show what it takes to paint inside America’s biggest indoor water park- located at the famous Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio.

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!
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:

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!
