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.

After 11 years, Millennium Force is finally being repainted.  It currently looks like the lift and queue line area of track has been painted so far.  Hopefully the whole ride will be sporting a new coat of paint by Opening Day. I would like thank Carsten Anderson of COASTER-net.com who allowed us to use his pictures.
