'''Revolution''' is an [[Arrow Dynamics]] [[shuttle]] [[roller coaster]] located at [[Pleasure Beach Blackpool]] in Blackpool, England. It was Europe's first fully [[Inversions|inverting]] roller coaster. Until the introduction of [[Infusion]], it was the parks only looping coaster.
'''Dragon''' is a [[Zamperla]] [[Kiddie Roller Coaster|kiddie]] [[roller coaster]] located at [[Lakeside Amusement Park]] in Denver, Colorado.
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".
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.
*This [[Shuttle Loop Coaster]] is unique as it has a cantilevered [[Support|support structure]].
