(The prototype '4D' coaster from Arrow Dynamics closed in 2007 for a major rehab into X2: Xtreme to the Second Power.)
You sit not on top or underneath the rail, but on the egde of a horizontal axis that lies across the rail. Your seats rotate 360 degrees, in coordination with 'X''s twists, drops and turns. Specs: top speed 76 mph, 4.5 Gs, 200-foot face-down 89 degree initial drop.
X2 will be here in 2008 and will feature some new effects including tunnels and lights. And the one we've all been waiting for - new improved lighter trains.
The track has now been painted red instead of pink and the new trains have electronic harnesses so there is no need for staff to push foot pedals any more. -- Last edited by Daniel Cernuschi
