Revolution is an Arrow Dynamics shuttle roller coaster located at Pleasure Beach Blackpool in Blackpool, England. It was Europe's first fully inverting roller coaster. Until the introduction of Infusion, it was the parks only looping coaster.

HistoryEdit

Revolution opened in 1979 with red with white supports. In the 1990s Bru sponsored Revolution, renaming the ride "Irn-Bru Revolution" and repainting it orange with blue supports. This sponsorship deal ended in 2011, and all Irn-Bru branding was removed. It was repainted silver and was renamed simply "Revolution".

DesignEdit

The ride features two raised platforms (one of wich is the station) and a vertical loop. The train is launched out of the station and through the vertical loop, on to the second platform. The train is then launched backwards through the vertical loop, reaches the station and the ride ends.
