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.

Painting Update – Superman Krypton @SF_Fiestatexas

Painting of the Superman Krypton roller coaster is progressing faster than a speeding bullet in San Antonio at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, where Baynum Painting’s team is hard at work on the ride ahead of the February 2015 park opening.  Using the super-tough combination of PPG’s Amerlock II and PSX 700 Polysiloxane to fully coat the structure, the fun part as always when painting roller coasters is accessing all of the various hills, corkscrew turns, and in this case, a nearly 170′ tall vertical loop.

Between various aerial man-lifts, rigging Spider baskets, and good old fashioned climbing, Baynum Painting’s team has no problem safely and efficiently completing even the toughest assignments.  Enjoy some progress photos below of the ride’s new paint job, and check out Baynum Painting’s homepage for more details on our experience and services.
