Published: February 28, 2011 at 3:09 PMI wonder if intensely colored paint schemes really make sense in a sunny tropical environment, such as Florida's. The year-round sunlight fades intense color so quickly, that it must be difficult to keep facades from looking worn.
When I think about the places in the Florida theme parks that don't look run-down, I notice that they tend to use more natural-looking exteriors (Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.), or at least paint schemes that accommodate fading.
I don't know, it's just a thought that I keep having when I see things like Seuss Landing and Toontown fading over the years.

If they change anything, I hope it's not the latter since it's going to be at USH. It's better to have different rides b/c it gives people a reason to visit the parks.

Published: February 28, 2011 at 7:55 PMHas the Hulk been refurbished in the past couple years? It needs a lot more than a new coat of paint. That ride is too rough, it rattles my skull and gives me a headache.
Published: March 1, 2011 at 8:08 PMCouldn't more of the problem be that Universal is not doing regular refurbishment on these attractions? While a brighter color will fade faster in the Florida sun, if it is painted regularly instead of letting it go for years it would always look fresh. I don't think the Hulk has been painted fully since Islands of Adventure opened correct? I always see Disney doing something to their buildings, but rarely Universal.
