X has reopened, has anyone been on it since?
Six Flags Magic Mountain:
It's reopened, but is it any different?
Last time I went on X was the week before it closed down for a long time refurb. Man, was it rough. I had a fairly bad time. Now that is had reopened, has anyone here been on it?
Is it less bumpy? I know they have not changed the trains yet, that's going to be after summer. But I'm sure it has to be a bit smoother.

I have gone on it, and it is way smother. when you are riding on it it feels like the tracks are made of ice. and it doesnt shake.
I wonder what they did to it to make it better. Anyone know?
There was a previous thread which the two main theory's supported were new trains (like the ones they installed on the Japanease version) and that they readjusted the track.
Ohh I see. Does anyone know for sure what they did? Thanx for responding.
They referbished it, meaning, repainted the tracks and cars, put new (polyderthain) weels on which are a strong fiberglass plastic, which gives it that coasting feeling (they have the same type of wheels on Goliath) They put in new breaks, Greased the chain wheel (which makes it sound smooth even clicking up the lifthill) and re ajusted the camera that takes your picture.
If you go anytime soon you can just hear the difference, it sounds like (it is hard to describe) well not rikity, but like it dosnt have tracks, does that make since? Oh well im glad they did it cause now its like new.
Oh yah FYI: They are going to referbish Phyclone (but aggressivly) So now it wont be a bad ride experince, it will be a brand new one!
i don't see how psyclone is getting refurbished since it was torn down a few weeks ago
yeah how are they going to refurbish cyclone if it is a big dirt spot there now
Maybe he was thinking of Colossus. I saw some stray track parts laying about when I was there in Sept. so HOPEFULLY they'll replace the track on both sides eventually, if not already. It REALLY needs it. Oh & thank you Brieson for the response to my question re: X. I cannot wait to try it. Hopefully sometime this year. *SIGH*.
Sorry i meant to say Collosus, but since they are both wood i got them mixed up, but yes psyclone is gone, i didnt like that ride anyways.
That's ok Brieson, I think we all know which coaster you meant! :)
