The New Revolution

The New Revolution is the world’s first modern roller coaster with a vertical loop.┬áThe coaster was named after the American Revolution in celebration of America’s Bicentennial. Revolution’s success was dependent on the industry’s 1st clothoid-shaped vertical loop, unlike many of the previous looping roller coasters in the 19th and early-20th centuries which attempted circular loops. The coaster received a makeover for its 40th anniversary in 2016 which included new trains with lap bars and an optional virtual reality experience.
