the line for X2

Six Flags Magic Mountain: How much of the line has died down?

I'm gonna go to SFMM in early February with my mom's friend's kids, and they are gonna want to go on this. I don't really feel like going on X2 on this visit. I do love the biggest of coasters, but one thing for sure the line will be much too long even when we get in the park. And I want to go on Goliath (for the first time) and my real favorites like Tatsu, Riddler's Revenge, Colossus, Revolution, and Jetstream. How long do you think it will take for the lines of X2 to die down. I don't wanna waste 2 hours in line for one ride. I've been on the original X, I liked it, but somehow it was just wasn't a favorite of mine.

It all depends on how many cars they'll have going. I was there in July and rode it three times as I personally found it(X2)to be the best ride there. The wait was on the average of 45min to an hour with three trains running. Your best bet is to get there before openning and run straight to it.

Tatsu on the otherhand took almost two hours!
Only ONE train going in the middle of summer?!!
Ridiculous, but I had some newbies in tow who really wanted to ride it.

Don't forget about Scream. I've never had to wait more than ten minutes for this silky smooth monster. Multiple rides everytime.

X2 at night in the back was my favorite place to ride, but be warned, it's very intense.

X2 wait occurs in what you can see from the line entrance. They hold riders in queue at the split point to each side of the loading platform. In the summer of 2007 they were then again holding riders at the top of the ramps and only allowing two riding parties in seat queues at a time. Once you are pass the loading platform split point, wait time is down to about 10 mins or less. With the rest of the queue being FULL and they are running all trains, you can expect 45 min max as long as there are no shut downs (which we haven't heard very many of since the ride re-opened).
