The main motor awaits installation on the main tower. The ride operation booth sits behind it next to the entrance.
Theming elements are embellishing the ride's main control room. Even the corrugated iron has been aged.
It doesn't really contribute to the area's supposed beach theme. Choosing to make concrete look like cheap bitumen is an interesting choice.
This bold red and grey gives a good indication of The Claw's new colour scheme. It definitely fits Ocean Beach's new emphasis on bold contrasting colours that started with Wipeout.
The ride is also receiving a close observation area similar to Wipeout, squeezed into the ride's landscaping.
The remaining two tower legs have been scuff sanded. This gives the new coat of paint a better surface to stick to.
The paint job is being done outside of park hours which means the ride continued to operate during the transition.
It's safe to say that this grey colour will be a base colour for the ride, with further artistry to come shortly.
