I assume this is when they are returning the snow and rocks to the roof of Alpen Laden, and the tunnel before the bridge.

It looks more "icy," so I can somewhat see what they were going for, but it also looks much more bland and boring.

Feels very much to me like a situation where somebody looked at two pantone colors on their computer and didn't give a ton of thought to how it would look actually applied to the structure.

Having looked at them in person from Grimms Landung, I actually think the real problem (ironically) is Griffon at this point.

I don’t actually like the specific shade of blue they used for Alpie’s supports, but in my opinion, ice/snow colors make more sense for a coaster themed to skiing than a mythological lion/bird. I understand the visual constraints and why Griffon needs to blend in with the sky, but if I am being completely absolutist, I’d rather see them repaint Griffon more appropriate colors.

Since Griffon can’t be orange/yellow/brown, I do have to agree that the new Alpie supports are unfortunate.

It makes the supports stick out so much more. They don’t blend into the trees at all.
I’m repeating myself, but I really do think the green support colors were intended to give some sense of forest/vegetation when that hollow was cleared for Alp’s construction.

The ice-blue color, in photos anyway, seems to confirm that the green actually worked pretty well for that purpose.

SEAS has created a new “system” for park maintenance, hence why everything is being painted, they finally are going though the list that was so backed up, there was so much being planed at BGT (repainting the entrance, that started) and essentially completely rebuilding adventure island (almost done). As for everything in BGW I assume they have a similar plan.

Interesting. So we may see more repaints and such coming before long, as well as hopefully parks getting parking lots repaved (or in Scotland/Bavaria’s case, paved for the first time)?

It looks like only the low lying stuff was the priority this
week.
