coasterboy76 Posted November 23, 2005 Share Posted November 23, 2005 Back in 1977 when the Movie "Rollercoaster" came out, I was instantly hooked on the "Revolution".... I wanted so bad to ride that coaster, the drops looked cool, the general layout of the track was wild, and I was just crazy over it.. kept saying one day I will get out to Magic Mountain and ride that.. Unfortunatly, I didn't get to ride The Revolution till around 99, and although I still was happy to be riding the coaster, the ride itself was really rough.. and a little of a let down..the biggest reason being they installed shoulder harnesses on cars that didn't originally have them. I watched "Rollercoaster" again today, and I was so mad, because the Revolution was going so much faster back then, and there weren't any shoulder harnesses. it seems like now they feel the need to use the trim brakes, and even add breaks where there were no brakes originally, (coming out of the tunnel and right before the last big turn) Why in the world do they do that to rollercoasters? Now I know I'm not the oldest person on this board, and I hope that there is someone out there that can tell me what a ride on the Revolution was like back then. full arial view of Revolution The "Revolution" 1977 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
