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.

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. - raging bull

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

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. - Victoria Jurkowski

Revolution was a little rough (which I knew beforehand from previous reviews), but I have to ride every roller coaster at least once. It is a classic though (being the first steel looping coaster), but something needs a little update so the ride can run smoother. It was an okay ride...and there was no wait at all when we went on. - Lisa Jania

first of all good ride. whenever im on it its like a ride into history. One thing i hate is the stupid over the shoulder restraints. their pointless am i right? - isaiah mercado
