Well, I can say for sure that for us shorter folks, in which the restraints affect our heads a lot more, that no OTSR's would be a godsend for Revolution...

I'm sure Riddler's will run with two trains again when things are busier.

But they gave a train to SFGA for Chang (EDIT** Green Lantern), which is why there is only single train operation on it. And busier? The line is reaching the sign at the entrance even on a dead day. That's sad.

^What?! I would never wait a line that long for Riddlers...it would be SO SLOW!

I dunno, I had a pretty good ride on it a couple weeks ago in the very front seat. It's no Tatsu or anything, but it seems to be running pretty well. The loop is awesome and both the helixes are fun as well - especially the one after the loop.

"Sure it would be easier to ride with comfortable restraints, but I doubt ridership would increase enough to warrant the funds spent." (John Knotts)

I agree. Revolution even with lap bars only would be more comfortable, and that's it. There are too many brakes on it now, and it would never match the rides in the late '70s. Very sad, too, because in its heyday, Revolution was quite a ride. Its layout is still good, but with the brakes, never again. :(

I'm going to have to look into this S:EFK thing on Six Flags' Facebook page...

For all those who say no-one cares about Revolution in its sad-current state, I don't remember talking to a single person (gp friends etc) who has ever ranked Revolution higher than second to dead last at Magic Mountain (usually trumped by Viper or Scream).


Hell, in tenth grade when a group of us went to the Mountain, we formed the club of the "Metal Trash Can Rolling Down the Hill", our most accurate description of Revolution's ride experience (this coming from people who thought Goldrusher had more merit).
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I think the new trains mentioned, which looked like they could have been designed for THIS ride, would work nicely and be more comfortable. MAYBE then it would't be trimmed so much.

Just looked at that picture again, that trains are sweeet! Are those lights in the front?
