The Revolution @ Six Flags Magic Mountain

One of the neat things if you have seen the movie Rollercoaster you'll notice that the landscaping is quite different from when the Revolution opened.  Just like the Whizzer (another of Anton's Masterpieces) at Six Flags Great America the trees have grown up to envelop the track so that you can hardly see any of it so what comes next remains a mystery.

When the Revolution first opened back in the 1970's (it was called the Great American Revolution back then) it's loop is what set it apart from all the other coasters in the world because it had the first modern vertical loop.

I miss how parks used to really think of where they put their coasters so they looked the best.  Most parks have gotten out of the habit of making their rides look good, they just bulldoze an area and put up the ride.

Buried deep in the woods at Magic Mountain is the Revolution.
