Magic Mountain in Valencia plans to upgrade the 40-year-old New Revolution roller coaster for 2016, the park announced Thursday.
The 360-degree looping roller coaster, which Magic Mountain claims to be the world’s first, will get newly designed trains and a new paint job to celebrate the park’s 45 year anniversary.
New Revolution’s cars will have lap and calf bars and the shoulder harnesses will be removed. The cars will also be painted red, white and blue and have silver eagles on the hoods.
The ride will close for remodeling after Sept. 7, the park said. It did not say when the ride will re-open.
According to the park, 45 million visitors have ridden the two-minute ride since it debuted in 1976.
Magic Mountain operates the theme park and the Hurricane Harbor water park on 262 acres. Six Flags is headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas, and has $1.2 billion in revenue. The world’s largest regional theme park operator, Six Flags owns or operates 18 parks, mostly in the United States.
