This gave me a bit of a start. This was posted to Walibi Holland's Facebook.

I think new paint jobs are always a good idea, as long as they pick a good color. Looks great to me.

Yeah I doubt they will. I wish I had a picture of it, but Raging Bull at SFGAm had all of the paint stripped from the flanges on the supports for a couple months before a repaint. It wouldn't surprise me if it's for some structural check that's needed every X months by TUV, and they'll just finish it off after said inspection.

That's just me talking out of my butt and guessing so we'll see.

Looks nice and all, but it's such a shame to lose those iconic colours. I kind of wish they'd just repainted it in it's original colours.

Hope that they won't start renaming that coaster like "Blue... (something)". :roll:

While they were unique the original colors are definitely the biggest example of the "wine" colored supports not always looking good.

I'm somewhat saddened by this, now everything about this coaster is fully generic. At least the original color scheme was striking.

I think the original was the best out of all.

One train was already changed to black. So I'm sure the 2nd one will follow this winter season.

Kinda too bad to see them not keeping the iconic green track. But it probably has it's reasons.

Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

Six Flags choose stupid colors when it was built. The blue is nice but blue and black is silly because that's what that ride will leave you if you have big thighs.

The blue has grown on me, but I can't say I'm not disappointed I won't be able to see the green track+black supports with my own eyes when I go this summer.

I'm most disappointed to not see the Purple and Green combination - but this is certainly growing on me too - at least it's a bold colour.
