Along with Valravn in 2016, Cedar Point is also sprucing up two of their iconic coasters with new paint jobs.
Tony Clark confirmed via the Cedar Point blog that both Raptor and Top Thrill Dragster will be receiving fresh coats of paint for 2016.
Raptor’s new paint job should be done by the 2016 season, whereas Dragster’s paint job will take two seasons due to the sheer size of the coaster.
Work has already begun on Dragster’s launch with pressure washing happening to prep the track for paint. Painting will occur on the launch, the return brake run and the support columns over the fall, with the rest happening throughout 2016.
