Let's hope so, but most likely you should not worry because by the very busy tourist summer season, the park is obligated to run the ride at full capacity, which may mean all three should be running. The X staff should be well trained and accustomed by summer too.

Yesterday, Sunday March 3rd, X was running 2 trains. I took 3 rides, waits were between 1:15 and 2 hours.

Has the third train gone anywhere or has it been sitting on the tranfer track the whole time? Also...How long do you think before it is running to full capacity?

I think it is good that X opened in the winter so when the park is running at full capacity in the summer the crew will be well trained. Unless, of course, they have a slew of college and high school kids come in for the summer.

Jon-Michael: I don't think that the third train is at SFMM yet. I've heard that its still over in the factory (wherever that is) being assembled. As for the ride itself (X) I went in the beginning of February and the line moved faster than I thought it would. I thought it could've easily ran three trains, the ride ops seemed like they had the hang of it.

The third train was there at the beginning of the year. But they were using it for spare parts and never fully assembled it, shipped it back to Arrow where I last heard that it was being redesigned a bit to accomodate what they have learned. So who knows when this thing will finally get three trains. Hopefully soon, as if they lose a second train again, well...one train op is just horrible on this ride. I feel bad for the people that wait in a huge line for just one ride. Amazing as it is, no ride should have a four hour wait. Ever!

What this ride actually needs is 4 trains like Ninja so there is always three train op even if something happens to one of the trains.
