Has anyone noticed the TNR train resting in front of the carousel? It looks like one of the older Revolution trains painted in the TNR color scheme.

From some updates I've seen, any new paint has blue being the majority color.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Scream got it first, then Orient Express, then the Carousel, and now TNR.



Don't forget the Tornado slide in the water park

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

That's exactly what it is, they did the same thing with Twisted Colossus last year.

Although this year is a bit different in the fact that it's actually still the same chassis with a remolded interior seat (and seatbelt). They are quite comfortable.

I love what they're doing with Revolution. I'm really excited to get back there and ride it in a few years.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Yup! From Wikipedia -

When the ride opened, the ride staff were outfitted with Continental Army style uniforms to match the American Revolutionary War of 1776 theme. The ride was later changed to a Mexican Revolution theme and called La Revolución when Six Flags purchased Magic Mountain in 1979. Later, in 1988, the ride's name was changed to Revolution.

I miss the days SFMM had themed uniforms for the whole park! My favorite was B:TR, which had tuxedo t-shirts.
