Six Flags' Shockwave Gets New Coat of Paint

Six Flags Over Texas

Workers repaint the Shockwave roller coast at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.

I-30 drivers should have something new to look at when they pass by Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.

The Shockwave roller coaster, which has been in the park since 1978, is getting a new coat of paint.

The classic dual-looping steel coaster has been showing blue and green hues for some time now, but the paint has latest been worse from wear.

Another I-30 onlooking coaster, Mr. Freeze, was repainted about a year ago, right before they flipped the trains to shoot riders backwards.

Shockwave won't have any ride changes, though -- Six Flags says the once "best steel coaster in the world" (in 1979) will stay on the same track.
