The Revolution @ Six Flags Magic Mountain

Revolution is a really fun coaster but it would be a mind-blowing incredible coaster without the over the shoulder restraints like it was originally intended.  The lap bar and shoulder harness is a bit much.

Out of the tunnel and through the loop to grandmothers house we go...sorry about that but it just came to mind.  I hope Six Flags takes a look at how the Paramount Parks are doing with removing the over the shoulder restraints on their Flight of Fear coasters and just having a lap bar to reduce head banging and make it a better coaster.  I so want them to do that to Revolution.  If they did they would have one of the best steel coasters on the planet in my opinion instead of an just "ok" coaster.

If you've ever seen the movie "Rollercoaster" this is where the bad guy gets it!  He is trying to cross the tracks and the good guy corners him and them...bam, the Revolution gets it's revenge for having several bombs placed on it. So the lesson for today is...don't mess with a Schwarzkopf.

Viper @ Six Flags Magic Mountain

The Viper is the third version of the Arrow 7 looping coasters that were built for Six Flags in the late 1980's.  The first one is the Shockwave at Six Flags Great America and the Viper had some serious changes to make it a much smoother and better coaster.

Here is loop #1 out of seven.  There are 3 vertical loops in a row than a 2 looping boomerang then a corkscrew to give you seven!   The major difference between this and the Shockwave is that it's a little more compact and you go straight out of loop #3 into the mid course brake instead of going up a hill, turning 90 degrees sharply and coming to a complete stop which gives you whiplash on the Shockwave.
