Wow, I didn't realise it was actually that thin from some angles!
I think that the 'gravity ride' could possibly be inside. I thought possibly there could be individual ones that ride up on the outside of each tube, but the steel ring sticking out probably means that won't happen.

does anyone know if, or when it will be painted?
Unless it is coated in something that isn't very obvious, but ages like copper (statue of liberty)
Just my thoughts.
