Not a bad logo, it could be worse. But I think the ride should just be called Superman to be honest.

As for the restraints on Revolution, there is no law and they could certainly be updated to have only lap bars. But the park hasn't ever, and probably never will, be willing to pay to retrofit them just for the issue of rider comfort or to please the enthusiasts.

I know, the ride would be much better and you wouldn't risk whacking your ears. But they've got bigger fish to fry.

I believe it is a convincing argument that the time and money that it takes Magic Mountain to switch Revolution's trains back to original form of single lapbar and seatbelt would be out weighed by the increase in ridership and re-ridership among guests. Montezooma's Revenge would probably suck if it had Revolution's current setup. Thank you Knott's for keeping it original.

Why the need for the OTSR like that anyhow? SDL doesn't use them, neither do the shuttle loops. Mindbender in the WEM has a completely different version doesn't it?

Maybe i'm with the minority, or maybe i AM the minority, but i've never had a bad ride revolution! I think the ride might be more fun with out the OTSRs and just lap bars. Besides no head banging, did the lap bars make it a better ride?


BTW, kudos to the new TPR sign on top!

Having a username like "COASTAH FREAK" is like having a girl's name tattooed on your chest. You hate looking at it every day, but it's there for good.
