Remove Green Lantern, put in a S&S free-fly.... awesome replacement... and it wouldn't be their 20th

I just thought of that. The park should hold the 20th coaster for their 50th anniversary for a replacement of Green Lantern. But then again, next year is Revolution's 40th anniversary. But then again, again, they might add their 20th coaster next year for the park's 45th anniversary.

My bets are on a Revolution restoration as well. Saw the lead Revolution car backstage being cleaned though yesterday, so not sure if they're setting the lead car up for a photo op like they did with Colossus last year or actually refurbishing the train which which means no Revolution restoration.

 

Guess we will find out in a few hours! It's honestly nice to not know for once what the park will be doing.

This is what SFMM's September 2015 calendar looks like. I was thinking of going on September 23 (Wednesday). But how weird is it that they're open on a random Wednesday, but not any other weekdays? I'll call to double check, but thought I would check here in case anyone has any insight.

Pretty certain is a Jewish Holiday such as Yom Kipper or Rosh Hashanah

Ah, thanks! Hopefully it won't be too busy since it's such an odd day to be open. Then again, if a lot of schools are closed because of the holiday, it could be quite the opposite...

 

As previously stated in this thread, there are a lot of Hebrew/Jewish Schools with a lot of students that will be off that day. Who knows how it will be depending on the weather too.

^All I know is the first place every Jew wants to go after Temple is Six Flags Magic Mountain. Ask Joey. I think it's actually a Los Angeles Jewish by law. Here in Nashville they all descend upon the Grand Ole Opry. You ain't heard country music till you heard Yiddish Country. Mazeltov! Straight outta tha trailer park!

The World’s First Looping Coaster Is Getting Newly Designed Trains

In 2016, Six Flags Magic Mountain will debut an all-new ride experience, The New Revolution.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the world's first looping coaster, we're refurbishing the coaster with new trains, special ride effects, and a new look. The New Revolution train will feature red, white, and blue colors with a silver eagle hood adornment on the cars. Newly designed trains will be fitted with lap and calf bars. The elimination of shoulder harnesses will give you a faster, smoother, sleeker ride with more airtime than you've ever experienced before.

 

The New Revolution, the beloved steel roller coaster that has thrilled over 45 million guests in its 40-year reign at the park, will be repainted a brilliant white and blue color, while newly designed trains will be fitted with lap and calf bars, and feature Americana red, white and blue colors with a silver eagle hood adornment. For coaster fans, the elimination of shoulder harnesses will provide a smoother, sleeker ride experience with more airtime.

 

With its new trains and makeover, The New Revolution will also feature:

 

- The world’s first giant loop – 90 feet high and 45 feet in diameter

- Fast and furious dips and dives, built into the park’s lush hillsides

- Speeds of 55 mph

- Two minutes of thrills on 3,457 feet of track.

 

The original Revolution steel coaster opened on May 8, 1976 as the Great American Revolution, in honor of the country’s bicentennial celebration. Its farewell run will occur on September 7, 2015 after which the transformation will begin.
