Six Flags Magic Mountain's X2 is a revamped version of the California amusement park's "X," the 4-D roller coaster that proved to be the undoing of Arrow Dynamics.

X2 offers lighter, stronger passenger trains than X, as well as on-ride fog and fire effects. X2's seats are mounted to the side of the track, allowing them to rotate in synch with track elements.

You start with a 200-foot face-down dive, then flip heels over head into a raven turn. At some moments, you're riding forward, others backward. All told, riding on Magic Mountain's X2 is like riding a compilation of best moments from other roller coasters.

Pretty good in all. The first time sucked at the end because by brother couldn't do other stuff after because he banged his chin, otherwise it was a good ride. Fairly smooth. Not exactly scary though. Mostly safe, just watch out at the end and be sure you don't hit your chin in the restraints. - Nathan Goldberg
