    Xcelerator being re-painted


    On my visit to Knott’s Berry Farm about two weeks ago, I noticed that the supports were in the middle of being repainted.

    I still don't get why they didn't paint this when it was down for 6 months. It's needed one for WAY too long.

    Finally, it looks a lot less menacing with the colors faded.

    Because during the course of an investigation by DOSH they can't do anything without their permission, and if they do permit it, personell from DOSH must be present during the entire process.

    The DOSH investigation was done MONTHS prior to the ride re-opening. They had to install the new cable, etc after the investigation. They could have been painting it then.
