Revolution is getting repainted... in grey! :?r

Clusterfarce wrote:Pleasure Beach Blackpool recently announced their Revolution rollercoaster had undergone a facelift. The amusement park released photos of the retheme today on their Facebook page.
Revolution opened in 1979 and was the UK's first inverting roller coaster. In 1990, the ride was sponsored by Scottish carbonated soft drink manufacturer A.G. Barr. The ride was subsequently renamed to "Irn-Bru Revolution" and painted in the orange and blue colours to relfect the company's premium product.
The sponsorship ended in 2011. Pleasure Beach Blackpool dropped the sponsorship, removing the "Irn-Bru" tag and modernising the logo in the process.
Revolution has been painted grey for the 2012 theme park season to reflect an industrial feel. A new paint job indicates the parks commitment to maintain historical, significant and thrilling rides in the UK.

I like the idea of "Change" to reflect an industrial appeal. It would make just as much sense to re"sponsor" it to some kind of hardware or tool theme maybe? If it sticks to "Irn bru" I don't know much more on that though.

Looks like someone from PBB has been reading the Merlin rule book on themeing a Rollercoaster........

Seriously, can't we paint a ride in the UK with better colours than grey?!

There is something appealing about a lot of these gray color schemes. I do like the "industrial" vibe as well.

From the presser...

Man, just SMDH here. They're practically begging for angry enthusiast chatter.

I personally like the new paint job, and I LOVE how the name is now just "Revolution"

@DirkFunk They aren't trying to stir things up: It is quite a good ride and it is the oldest operating coaster in the UK (maybe even Europe) with an inversion.

Pleasure Beach today posted pictures of the current work being done to Revolution, including a HUGE amount of scaffolding. The money they must have spent this year on scaffhold for rides im guessing would be insane. The whole of the Valhalla facade and Rev loop. Thats a whole lot of scaffhold! Anyway onto pics.

Image
Oh noes, where did the loop go!

Image
There is some track hidden in there somewhere.

Image
Say goodbye to Irn-Bru very soon.

For more pics check out Pleasure Beach Resorts Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pleasurebeachresort
