People have to remember that "X" isn't your typical coaster, if you've seen the track you know what I'm talking about. It's huge. Perhaps that is the reason that it's taking so long. I'm grasping for straws here, but that could be the reason. Another could be all the wet weather the area was having over the winter. And yet another could be that the company, park, whatever just didn't want to start construction until now. Just my opinion. Peace. :)
I do not think that it can be blamed on either of them. We do not know what is actually going on. If you ask me, the track could be rather hard to build. That is just a possibility to why it could be taking so long. Either way, Arrow is not known to be massively late on anything they build for a park so lets hope that they get it done soon.
I work for a major newspaper and I came accross 3 photos from AP on Arrow and X. They posted a photo where employees were still welding track for X and this was at the end of last month. I'm pretty sure that the delay is either lack of parts or the inspections that need to be done for the footers. ------------- No Lapbar, No Seatbelt, No Problem!
I was at SFMM on friday and Deja Vu is HUGE! We parked in the VERY back of the parking lot and I saw TONS of X Track. It looks sooooo cool. They had a ton of stuff going on around the site for X and a lot of footers are done. It won't be a flying coaster. That's for sure. Deja Vu was practically done. If you go to the Sky Tower and look at the lot you can see a lot of the track and you can see a lot of Deja Vu. and lastly, does anyone know if Six Flags has a CD with the techno stuff they have for RR, X, and Deja Vu? Bye.
There is NO WAY X is going to be floorless. I've seen the prototype vehicle. (Its sitting outside the back door of the Arrow fab shop) and I know its going to work! Across the street there are twenty to thirty pieces of track waiting for paint or inspection or something. It is awesome to see the helix in some of these pieces!
