Welcome to our first New Revolution Update. Over the next 6-9 months we'll be covering the return of the classic Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
For those who never got to ride the original Revolution you are in for a treat when it reopens next year.

Before we get started on the update, be sure to set your calendar to join in on another live chat Monday night (Sept 14) at 8pm Pacific. The Coaster Guy and I will be talking about Fright Fest, Haunt, Halloween Horror Nights, our Magic Mountain event on Oct 2 and pretty much anything else you could want to discuss. The event and live chat are open for all.

My day actually started off in Ventura at about 6:00am and the Ventura Half Marathon. Because you know, where else would you want to do after running 13.1 miles other than go to a theme park. =)
After the race on the left, and about 90 minutes later at Hurricane Harbor.
We actually had a nice relaxing afternoon at the park and hope to get back up there at least once more before it closes for the season. It's been so hot I'm sure we can pull it off.
After enjoying the cool waters of Hurricane Harbor it was time to head over to SFMM to take a look at Revolution.
The gate means don't go here (although we did see somebody in the smoking section over there). So expect a larger wall here soon.
A look at the front, not much has been done yet. (forgive the pics, these were all taken on a cell phone)
In our walk around the ride, it appears that one train is gone. We were doing a live Periscope and somebody mentioned that one of the trains was backward. It's not. We could have been had and I'm too tired to look for the source. =)
Heading up the Orient Express (because I wasn't about to walk up the hill). Again, not much to see ... yet.
Over on the other side, a wall is blocking the exit, but nothing much has been done ... again ... yet. =)
No train in the station, one on the brake run.
Moving on from Revolution, let's take a look at Fright Fest Prep. Be sure to get tickets for our Fright Fest/ERT event on October 2. It's only a couple of weeks away now!!
Willougby's Facade is up.
Lighting is being added to Exile Hill.
Signs for the Express Pass Entrance for Fright Fest has been added to Willoughby's Garden (which you can use during our event on Oct 2 ;) )
Wasteands is looking great as always!!!
Zombie Xing is also looking great.
Less than 2 weeks until Fright Fest begins!!!
Alright, that's gonna wrap it up for this update. Not sure when we'll have another one but if we end up going back up to Hurricane Harbor over the next two weeks I'll sneak away to grab an update. =)
Thanks again for all the support and we hope to see you all on October 2!!!
