Today we were invited up for a great tour of The New Revolution now under construction at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
The ride is looking AMAZING and we simply couldn't wait to share the update with you.
We've also included a walk-through video for those who might want to have a video tour instead of pictures, or both. We wanted to try something a little different so we hope you enjoy it. If you do, let us know and we'll do more of them.
Also, don't forget that you can join us on June 5 for Mountain Madness 2.0 where we will have ERT on The New Revolution, food, tours and more. Be sure to click the link to check that out.

We'll start off with a look at the spectacular loop which looks great with the blue around it. They were applying the primer today so this should hopefully be completed by next week.
A closer look, as you can see the primer is definitely not the finished product.
Hard at work.
According to our tour guide Bruce, the painting portion of the project is about 65% done and the entire project (not counting the trains) is about 75% done.
Unfortunately we can confirm that a re-paint of Tatsu is not in the budget, at least not for this year.
Along with The New Revolution, the entire front area of the park is getting redone.
The Cyber Cafe seen below will now be called the Plaza Cafe. It will have a few new food items and will still offer free WiFi and everything that's inside now. (Confirmed by the park).
Flags will now be called Six Flags Emporium and will receive a COMPLETE makeover inside.
Suzette's Bakery will be renamed the World Famous Funnel Cake Factory and will also undergo some changes inside to hopefully make it easier to navigate. Their hope is to do the renovations during the week as to allow people to still get Funnel Cakes on the weekends.
The Orient Express will now be called the "Helpful Honda Express" which means $$ needed to keep this attraction looking great. And it does.
Lastly, the Grand Carousel will remain the same name but will be receiving a full overhaul.
Moving on with the tour, white and shiny.
As we head into the construction zone we can see all of the great work they are doing.
The ride will no longer be themed to "Baja Ridge" but will instead be an "Americana" theme.
The water features will not be returning but the entire area is going to be completely landscaped.
Some new trees will be planted on the right.
The new path is the ADA entrance and that will be near X2.
Inside the station some things have changed, much hasn't.
Bottom of the second drop heading into the third hill.
The lift hill hasn't been painted ... yet.
New and shiny
A look at the final brake run
Place your heads against the headrest because The New Revolution is coming VERY SOON!!!
There will be another tour VERY soon and we will of course be there to do another great update.
Thanks again for reading/viewing and for all of the incredible support. It's very much appreciated.
