When I arrived at the entrance, the ops hadn't even started testing the ride or anything. I talked with a few full-timers including the Vice-President and was hoping to see Del but he wasn't there. After about 10 test runs with sups, leads, and "black-tags", they finally opened the entrance at about 11:00. I was on the first train on the front right-outside seat!!! The one-train operation sucked so I didn't go on it a second time. Here's my review:
Everybody cheered as my fellow riders and I made history: The first "public" riders on X. The lift seemed very slow but as we made our way to the top, my heart pounded really hard. The next thing you know we were looking straight at the ground as the seat flipped. This drop is awesome!!! Building speed as we flip under ourselves we make out way to the raven turn full of positive G's! It kinda hurt my neck but I was okay. The bunnyhop backflip spin was very smooth and the turnaround seemed fast too. This is where the ride seemed bumpy. The twisting frontflip was very disorienting and it has to be my new favorite inversion. The 2nd raven turn was amazing but bumpy and the last twist was dizzying too! The thing was over before I knew it. It felt like I was high on drugs! LOL! I bought a picture and my face looks very funny on it. THIS IS MY NEW #1 COASTER!!!!!
