On the job: Cedar Point paint project has its ups and downs
From the Sandusky Register…
Workers at Lakeside Interior Contractors will exhaust every drop of 500 gallons of paint before they’re done painting the Blue Streak’s 2,000 feet of track.
The coaster — the oldest one at Cedar Point — is known for its sky-blue skin, although the color’s official name is “Blue Bell,” said Kim McLennan, project manager at the Perrysburg-based Lakeside Interior.
About once every seven years the Blue Streak gets a fresh coat of paint — partly to maintain its appearance, but also to weatherproof the wood.
