Park:

Type:
Roller coaster

With dozens of roller coasters all over Europe now featuring all manner of inversions, it’s hard to believe that Revolution was the first looping coaster in the continent when it opened in 1979. It features a simplistic circuit, which sees riders being launched through a vertical loop in a forwards direction, stopping on a platform, and then being launched through it again in the opposite direction.

More fun than it looks

Let's be honest, a drop to a loop, then that again but backwards. Doesn't seem that fun, right? WRONG! The Revolution is not for the faint hearted, as the AD Shuttle Coaster pulls in a massive G-Force of 4! The backwards drop feeling is probably one of the best, and scariest feelings I've ever felt on a coaster, that's for sure! The only downside to this ride? The stair journey to the station.
