Yes, it's new lighting. See, the wall isn't finished people.... That doesn't answer his question. He is referring to these 4 new cone like parts that have been attached. I'd guess lighting too.
I can see your point, and obviously taste is a very subjective thing. But I have to disagree that thinking this flat, ugly rust wall is hideous makes me "mental"Don't post in here much but just popped in for a catch-up.
Dudes... are you mental? That hotel looks f***ing awesome! What the hell are y'all complaining about?? Never seen anything quite like it.
I know you Phanboys have been dissecting and scrutinising every detail of this project from day 1, and I think maybe some of you are getting too hung up the minutiae (ie the rust colour) to see the bigger picture, but take it from someone who has just seen that complete(?) facade for the first time:
It. Looks. Awesome!
Even closer to this than Klugheim’s intricate theming is the horrendous vertical garden, which still looks as atrocious as ever, is visible from within the park and no one seems to care about anymore.I think knowing Klugheim is next to this, with it's hand-crafted wooden roofs and buildings
Is something not being the centre of attention an excuse for being unsightly? I wouldn't say so. That's like saying The Smiler's gross concrete block of a station is completely fine, because most people are focused on the coaster itself? Nah, I don't buy that.Even closer to this than Klugheim’s intricate theming is the horrendous vertical garden, which still looks as atrocious as ever, is visible from within the park and no one seems to care about anymore.
The majority of people seeing this rusty wall will see it for a few seconds when driving to the park and when stuck on traffic on the way out.
Regarding the theming inside the area (where PHL is probably investing a bit more time and effort), even if the walls look completely flat most people will be too distracted by the coaster itself to notice or care if the facade in the background looks flat or not.
