Six Flags Magic Mountain:
I don't know if anybody knows, but SFMM's X is in the 2008 season X2!
Okay, here's what's happening: X is going from X to X2, or 4th demention to the 5th.
1. All new seats that are more fluffy and are not nearly as hard to strap yourself in.
2. All new state-of-the-art visual, audio, and sensory effects.
3. All new tunnel. (I don't know where on the ride).
4. All new lights for the all new tunnel, which will make it a lot cooler.
Sorry folks, that's all I know. Thanks for comments if you have any!

This is the marketing gimmick of the century. The new trains for the coaster are desperately needed because the original trains are the reason why the coaster had such a large amount of downtime. S&S had been working on the new trains for almost two years until they finished Eejanaika at Fuji Q last year. The additional "sensory and lighting effects" will be nothing special, and the promised tunnel effect will probably only work 1/4 of the time. It's good to see the train upgrade, but what this coaster needs is a crew that can actually maintain all of the trains (hopefully they actually get 3 of them) and load them efficiently without stacking.
Finally! Although the very front seats are the most enjoyable, the back seats are absolutely unbearable! All I could remember was my head constantly banging back and forth within the restraints. I hope these new trains will do justice because the track's layout is perfect in my mind.
Sounds great! The new trains will mean improved ride reliability and the enhancements are a great idea. Can't wait to see the finished product.
I must ride it before it gets jerky again. I must.
