    The colour is right but it lacks the gently sloping sides, large, round, closely placed columns and tapered features of typical Egyptian Architecture.

    Another typical update from Mint. Haven't read it yet so not sure what it goes over.

    What are they doing to the loop? Removing the sunburst?

    ^Fortunately your post serves a much better and effective purpose or I might say the same thing.

    I simply laughed because your post echoed the idea that many of the things they are doing will soon need to be redone (MFW base, GSS, PPP). That isn't a mentality I subscribe to, but it is present here and it made me laugh.

    To sum it all up though, no the sunburst is staying.

    I think he is laughing at your interpretation of replace the loop as removing the starburst...which is a bit funny.
    But it is exactly as they he said the loop is being replaced.
    (in case your still confused the sunburst is behind the loop and not part of the loop)

    Replacing the actual loop seems like a colossal and unnecessary waste money and resources. When lighttragic said TLC I assumed they meant in the theming, e,g: the starburst.

    Safety is safety. If the loop needs replacing, it needs replacing regardless of the cost. I think the TLC comment was more toward other aspects of the coaster.

    The loop was removed while the "Paradise Pier" marquee and starburst were initially installed. It is prefabricated steel that is bolted in place. A relatively simple procedure.

    Relatively is the key in that sentence. Absolutely it is a big investment but no doubt worth it for whatever reason Disney has decided to undergo the procedure.

    Even as far as safety goes I've only heard of new track being brought in for a coaster once, Maverick at Cedar Point. Has any of this new loop stuff been confirmed?

    As far as the sunburst/starburst goes I wish they would dump it. The art and models of Screamin' without it look superior IMO.
