White Lightning, Heading Up!

 I really like the look of the steel structure that is being used on White Lightning at Fun Spot America!  When the park first announced that they would use a steel support structure for the ride (the first that Great Coasters has done this) I wondered how the finished product would look.  Turns out the answer to that is it looks great!

From a distance, and without heavy inspection, I could easily be fooled into believing that the support structure actually is wooden.  Perhaps it was as simple as painting it white?  Maybe it's just me.  Either way I'm liking what I'm seeing much more than how Custom Coasters used to do it.
