  • X reopened...again

    Just want to report that X is now reopened after being closed for about 5 months. They replaced the gear box for the chain lift.

    Same ride, but it was nice to get back on such an Extreme coaster.

        Too bad it was just chain related, and they can't get it to decent capacity

          Why do they build these crazy coasters if they can't even keep them open?

          This stupid ride hurt my arm really bad. I don't even know what happened.

            Will probably be the next ride they take out.......hopefully.
            "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

                I was really looking forward to riding X....but man was I let down...it really beat the heck out of me. If it could be built B&M smooth that would be something!

                  Am I the only one who loved X and didn't get beat up on it?

                        Ive been on it six times so far and it still scares me poopless. But its one heck of a ride.

                          I've ridden X over 300 times, and only been beaten up once or twice.
                          If you want to lessen chances of being "beaten", sit on an inside seat.
                          Being towards the front or rear of the train isn't as much of a factor - if you know what to look for, you can spot the seats that will bounce more.

                            No! I loved this ride. I've only been able to go on it once, and was really, really bummed the last time I went to MM and it was closed. I'm hoping to get out there soon, and keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay open for me to get at least one more ride on it!

                              I consider it to be the most forceful ride I have ever been on. The way you are forced during the many seat rotations, inversions. It is definatly one of the most unique coasters out there. (...even with the replica in Japan.)
