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.

Very unique and crazy.

Really unique, one of the few rides that’s still scares me (in a good way), but the roughness takes away from the the overall experience

Still one of the most unique roller coasters in the world, but it's starting to show its age. SFMM did a makeover of this coaster about 10 years ago, but most of those upgrades are no longer working (music, fire effects, and more efficient ride operations). I am continuously perplexed as to why SFMM cannot load and operate this coaster more efficiently even with ample staffing and maintenance crews seemingly poised just steps away to fix any technical issues. However, the lines here crawl ever so slowly, and posted wait times must be taken with a grain of salt.

I would still visit SFMM just to ride X2, but because of the lines and inefficient/inconsistent operations, I quickly lose my patience and make sure to ride early in the day.
