When you enter Magic Mountain, this will be the closest coaster to you, so you might want to ride it if it's your first time. It features hills, drops, turns, and one vertical loop.

This was actually the first roller coaster in the world to have a vertical loop. Most of the track is hidden in the trees, so you can't really make out what's going on unless you're on the ride.

The OSTR's make the ride a little bumpy, and the wait is usually around 30 minutes.

This ride is on the rougher side. Although it isn't as bad as some other coasters I've been on, there is still a good amount of pain. Although it doesn't make the ride horrible, it defiantly takes away from the ride. It's still a pretty good ride, as it has three great drops and a fun vertical loop.

For a "looper" coaster, I was actually relatively impressed. Unlike other loopers (I am talking about coasters in the 1970s which reintroduced us to the loop), this one actually has some pretty decent speed and covers a fairly nice deal of terrain. However, it is nothing too significant and if you don't have all the time in the world, you won't miss much if you skip it.

I love the layout of the coaster, but the otsrs and trim brakes ruin the ride. Post on the Facebook page "Restore Revolution" to help restore the ride to its former state before 1992.

The one and only- Revolution!! This attraction would be much better without the extra harness and head supports.

If you MUST ride this, keep your head against the headrest. If you don't, you're in for a serious head banging. As cool as the history is, this is not a must ride for me. It's terribly jerky, hurting your head and shins from the awkward two part restraint system.
