Montezooma's Revenge Review

Once you get in the seat, you pull down the lap bar, buckle the seat and wait. Once all the rows are clear, you'll hear the ride say "Clear Dispatch." Immediately, you launch from 0-55 mph in...I don't know how many seconds (I don't care about rollercoaster facts). The launch is decent. It's no Xcelerator or Incredible Hulk, but hey, not only is this ride 37 years old, but it's also a better launch than many other coasters I've ridden. After a decent launch, you pull up into the loop. At this point, you are so grateful to have those lap bars. After looking at Jaguars track upsidedown for a second, we pull out of the loop and you begin to realize, Revolution sucks major ass. Then you race for the sky as you climb up to the top of the spike. If you turn around for a second, you get a nice view of Knotts Berry Farm. Then you fall backwards and rip back into the loop, also wondering about Revolution. Oh, and you get some pretty cool laterals in the loop. Ok, its not extreme, but its fun and a little unexpected. Then it's all straight track, Backwards Straight Track. At least here it's fun to yell at the people in line, then you start climbing backward, up and up you go, this time you can see how high you are. Although it's not as high as the first spike, it's still fun. Then you fall back down and glide into the brakes. After an immediete stop, you climb out and get back in line or go ride Xcelerator. Even though it's only 30 seconds long, it's still a damn good 30 seconds (Like Top Thrill Dragster damn good 17 seconds). And considering how this is an incredibly rare ride, being the only one of its kind in the United States and one of six in the world. So yeah. RIDE THIS RIDE!!!
