Distance: 2.5 mi Tourist Information
Pleasure Beach
Blackpool, United Kingdom FY4 1


Revolution, formerly Irn Bru Revolution, is an Arrow Development shuttle roller coaster at Pleasure Beach, Blackpool. It was Europe's first fully looping roller coaster. The ride consists of two raised sections of track with a vertical loop in the centre. The train is launched off the first raised platform, into the loop, and up onto the second platform, where it repeats the process in reverse. As a result of the design, riders are required to climb a series of stairs to get to the loading station. Until the introduction of Infusion, it was the park's only looping coaster.HistoryBefore being sponsored by Irn-Bru, and carrying the Irn-Bru orange and blue colours, the ride was known as "Revolution" and used to be painted red and white, with the Union Flag painted on the front and back.During the Irn-Bru period it was titled "Irn Bru Revolution". In 2011, the Irn-Bru sponsorship ended and the ride reverted to its old title.In February 2012, the park confirmed that the ride would be closed for early parts of the season in order to be painted in a new colour theme - grey and white.In popular cultureThe ride was featured on the BBC show Jim'll Fix It when a group of Cub Scouts ate their lunch whilst riding the roller coaster.A homage was featured on an advert for Irn-Bru soft drinks when a group of goths drank Irn-Bru whilst riding, resulting in them becoming completely drenched, in 2007.
