^Did they really?


Are you sure?


I don't know why they would do that. If any old steel coaster could benefit from a reprofile, it would be Revolution - as it would make it 'better' to remove the OTSR (not shove heads down on the intro/outro of the loop).


I actually did my senior Engineering report on how it would be possible to redo the Revolution slightly to facilitate removal of the OTSRs. The professor was totally lost.


The only thing I would think they did to Shockwave's track would be maybe inspect/X-ray it, replace some welds/ties. It would be really expensive to manufacture re-banked track. Why would it need it? After the 'station drop speed hill' before the left curve/helix, the ride is pretty tame.
