Is there any reason for this? Cost cutting/too much effort? Or just that they prefer the traditional look of the woodies? Genuinely just curious
As I understand it, the treated wood is more expensive but is more durable and longlasting. Paint is not required and in some circumstances creates more problems because the pressure treated wood contracts and expands at a different rate than untreated meaning the paint doesn't bind to the material correctly.I second this.
Yes, exactly. Fundamentally, paint doesn't allow the wood to dry. The paint will crack almost as soon as it dries too, thus allowing water in.The chap said that the paint is causing the wood to become rotten a lot sooner than it should.
Something to do with the second the paint bubbles, rain water gets trapped behind it and has nowhere to go other than to soak into the wood.
On another note, I haven't been to BPB since I was really young, so what would be on the 'do not miss' list? I'll be visiting in 2018.
We noticed a massive crack in the Wild Mouse track above the path towards Dipper, might this explain why the ride has been closed?
Went to BPB in August for LNR, the throughputs on most rides were great, but on Streak they were appalling, It was running 10 minute dispatches at 9:30pm, when people were trying to get one more ride in before the end of the day.

This is a popular beef of BPB fans and has been for years. If when you look down from the ramp, the queue extends to opposite the Krusty Krab Order Up ride, I reckon you are looking at a one hour wait, this is a guess as I have queued with my son to the back of the enclosed ramp and that was a good 45 minutes. I and probably many others won't go anywhere near Streak on a busy day. Get it done early doors if you must, especially considering Nick land can shut an hour before the rest of the park at times.
The extra weight of the metal plates attached to each car have caused chaos this year with cracks and chain snaps. I however, believe that it has been closed due to insurance reasons.
