Yesterday we were invited up to Six Flags Magic Mountain for another tour of The New Revolution and we got a look at the all new trains and all of the great work they've been doing.
We also have a fun video of the trains that we posted last night as well as a tour video.

Reminder, our event is coming up at Six Flags Magic Mountain on June 5, you can find all the info here.
For those who like their updates in video form, a full walk-through of our tour including the entire ride area, trains and more.
So first let's look at the all new sign for The New Revolution. It's back-lit and is going go look amazing at night.
Even during the day with the right lighting it really pops.
The station has been completely painted and looks fantastic.
Something is sitting over on the transfer track. You can also see the entry to the station is much bigger to accommodate the new trains.
Let's take some time and check out the trains ...
If you missed it, be sure to check out our video of the trains.
The front of the train is not on yet, but it'd be fun to ride it like this too.
The restraint mechanism.
And while there isn't an "ankle restraint" you can see to the right there is a bar there.
The trains have headrests unlike the original trains. Which means the ride can actually run backwards.
A look back at the station, just a little bit of work still to do.
An overview of all of the landscaping going on
They were building the big entry sign
We also got to check out the new VR headsets, they were really cool and well done.
There will be about 200 headsets which means 40 will be in use for the new riders, 40 for those being loaded and 120 being cleaned or charging.
These are totally optional but are definitely worth checking out once.
The ADA queue is finished for the most part.
Lots of little paths that are presumably for getting up and landscaping the area.
Getting ready to put the new sign up
We also got a preview of Chop Six which was really good. Lots of "Americanized Chinese" food like Orange Chicken, Beef and Broccoli, a really tasty Tofu vegetarian dish and some WonTon Taco's.
If you have a Season Dining Pass you can get a sneak peek of ChopSix this weekend!!
A look inside the new Six Flags Emporium. Lots of great work going on inside.
The Grand Carousel continues to get a lot of work done, all of the diagrams are being re-done.
Plaza Cafe is still getting work done.
We got to try one of the new Funnel Cakes at the "World Famous Funnel Cake Factory".
The Berry Revolutionary Funnel Cake ...
Red Velvet Funnel Cake, Raspberries, Blueberries, Whipped Cream,
We hope you enjoyed this look at The New Revolution.
