What kind of paint do they even use to paint coasters? Is it typical house or car paint or do they use something specific?
It is most definitely NOT house paint. I do not know for certain, but I would guess it varies a bit by climate and need. There are epoxy paints that inhibit rust and also enamel.

I know I’m partly to blame, but we should probably get this thread back on topic. If someone wants to they can create a separate thread about ride painting/maintenance.

This is such a laughable rumor. Not only is there no credible sourcing, not only does Six Flags not have the funds to buy out an entire chain, but their management/allocation of expenditures completely clash.

There are plenty of examples in the history of business of these types of acquisitions going down with companies in much worse standing than Six Flags. It can happen.

Sometimes struggling businesses fix short term problems by acquiring as many assets as they can to stay afloat.

Our primary service is keeping a park’s rides in the best shape from a coating standpoint, which not only increases their functional longevity, it also enhances the park experience for their guests.
while it may not happen often, it doesn't mean its not regular maintenance, you don't change your cars battery every year, but the fact you do change it on a regular schedule x number of years makes it regular

note it should be, cost cutting measures makes it last on the list of thing to do

but painting helps with more than just looks; it helps prevent or delay rusting which can deteriorate the capability of the rides parts, among other reasons
