The Revolution is a flat ride. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Don't get me wrong, Revolution is a good flat ride and all, but after experiencing true winning frisbee rides like MaXair, I have concluded that I just am not as big of a fan of these smaller inward-facing models. I actually rode MaXair before this, so that may have spoiled me. First of all, Dorney's Revolution does look really good, and I kinda liked the logo for it as well. The setting is pretty nice, but the wait in line is excruciatingly too long. I don't understand what all they need to check so thoroughly, but it leads to a wait that is just ridiculous. As for the ride itself, it is a fun one, and the spinning is pretty good and overall the intensity is definitely there. However, it did seem a tad slow to me, which was a mild disappointment. It's still a good ride for the park that complements the ride lineup well, but for rides of this type there are definitely better ones. I would recommend the ride, but try and wait for when the line is shorter, like later in the evening or very early on in the day.

Very poor frisbee ride. This Chance model isnt nearly as good as the one nearby at Hershey for many reasons. Revolution spun faster than a lot of others Ive been on, but the swings were very slow and pretty light on the Gs and sensations, and there was no air time on any of the swings. The cycle was decent though.

I really didnt expect some thing like this at Dorney Park, but its a pretty decent ride. You get the great "spinning and rising" and "rising and spinning" sensation, which is quite a crowd pleaser. But there are a couple of cons. First, this ride is a little too small, so you dont receive very heavy hangtime. Second, facing the other riders just didnt seem as much fun as being on the outside for some reason. I really dont know why. But still, give this little ride a spin, as least Dorney can afford it.

Revolution is a ride similar to Claw at Hersheypark, and I also found this to be a great ride. Compared to Claw, this version seems to go much higher making for a more intense ride with great swinging/spinning action. Having only rode this ride once, I cannot tell whether it is inconsistent like Claw, so the rating stands where it is for now.

I enjoyed the actually ride after the lady operating it finally got us all checked. We were there for Halloweekends(Big Joke) and it appeared to be the ops first day. After that they gave a decent cycle with mild intensity. I just dont enjoy the inward facing ones nearly as much as the outer. They do feel a little more intense, but a lot less fun for me. Still a solid ride at a good, although emotionless park.

In general I find the inward facing pendulum rides more intense. However, this ride lacked the speed and intensity that I have experienced on some other versions. A good flat though.

Eh...this was a subpar flatride that looks 10x better than it is. This is a Chance Revolution 32 that doesnt swing as high as its KMG counterpart and takes forever to load. I do not understand why they have to check every harness to see if the person fill fit. Just tell everyone to sit all the way back, lower the harnesses and then sort that all out at once! The ride itself seemed a bit bland. The swings didnt seem to have much force, and spinning wasnt all that fast. Its a good ride for the park, Ill give it that, but I personally didnt enjoy it that much. The KMG Fireball is far more forceful and much faster at loading.

I really enjoyed this ride. It was fun but it took so fricken long for them to load it. You take a seat and then they ride ops chatted for a bit why we were all sitting there. Then finnaly they came and checked to see if we all had to fit ( one poor women had to leave cause she couldnt fit) and then u wait again then finnaly they let u put the things down and they locked. Then we waited again and the finnaly started it. And when it started i was mad cause we werent getting to be on the top of the things when it went up. But luckily for us when it actualy got to fully hight we were the ones at the highest point and it was awsome. It really was like a pirate ship kinda how u get that queasy fealing in your stomach as u drop down but your also spinning at the same time when your dropping which makes it better than pirate ships. Great ride and you should definently give this a ride when your over near the Steel force/ Thunder Hawk area.
