World's second 4D coaster opens at Fuji-Q park in Japan
Written by Steve Chisnall
On July 19th, Six Flags Magic Mountain's X lost its crown of world's only 4th dimension coaster. It has a younger brother, christened "Eejanaika" (pronounced "eh-ja-NIE-kah"), is taller and faster and has been refined, with trains that weigh less than those on X, and a new element called a "Full-Full" in which the train does a heartline roll of sorts (heartlining is technically impossible on a 4D coaster) while the seats do a somersault in perfect sync with the roll.Tweet
