I know who he is, I was making fun of the person who said he has stories to share with his kids and grandkids about who he met.

Yeah I know you have been around long enough to know the story lol, but we have many here were not here and do not know who he is or the backstory, which was why my attempt at a joke a few posts up fell flat LOL.  

But it is also a lesson for the youngsters to not do what had happened that ended up making this an inside joke here LOL.

Interesting! I think the brown will blend better in the wooded part of the ride. With it peeking out of the woods for the crests of the hills. 

Estimated Color Visual: (it'll be very similar to this, but we'll likely get photos soon of the new colors!)

Mushroom Brown: image.png RGB (144, 110, 88)

Crimson Red: image.png RGB (124, 41, 42)

One of my main concerns with repainting Diamondback was if they went with the yellow lift hill again and seeing it fade out again within a few years. The brown should blend in a lot better in Rivertown and should look nice for a lot longer compared to the original color scheme.

Does anyone know photoshop? It would be cool to see what it will look like!

I recall someone posted a video of DB with the new paintjob back when people saw the tests on the supports. 

It looks really good, if I can find it I'll edit the message.

I think that, unless material technology has improved drastically since 2016, they are blowing it by once again painting a track red.  I use 2016 as an example because that is the year Dragster was repainted crimson red, and look at current photos of the tophat to see how well that has aged.  The brown supports will be cool for the reasons already mentioned, but the red track gets a no from me, dawg.  Granted, my opinion means all of zilch, but there it is for better or worse.

Not perfect, but it should give a good glimpse of what the lift hill and supports should look like after the repaint. (Original image is from CoasterBuzz on Pinterest)

Right after I post DB’s supports look brighter, KI goes ahead and makes me look bad with a post that says the support color will change. Lol.

I am really excited to see the finish product! I think the new support color will fit much better in Rivertown.

On the webcams I thought the yellow supports looked brighter. Then KI said the support color is changing to Mushroom brown. That is what I was laughing at because 1 hour after I posted that KI said they were changing the color of the supports to not be yellow. Lol.

I haven’t seen mushroom brown on any of the supports yet. Just the images here.

I know there was brown test paint on Diamondback's supports a few weeks back and was discussed in another thread.
