I think that X-Flight has to be the most anticipated coaster around here. Most people can't wait for it. It is a new concept to any coaster fans that cannot travel to the Stealth. I can't wait until it opens.
Nitro. It was being constructed for the longest time, and Great Adventure didn't announce it until it was half done. The ride is going to combine everything that made Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull so awesome(that's just based on all the positive reviews of those rides). It's gonna be tallest coaster on the East Coast, and also one of the fastest, hitting 80 mph. Just look at the layout, its damn near perfect.

For me it is definitely going to be X-Flight because I'm really looking forward to riding a flying coaster! Before they announced X, I thought that it was the most creative coaster concept ever. So finally I will be able to experience the freedom of flying with the thrill of riding a coaster.
I know everyone is so excited that X-Flight will be the newest flying coaster, but everyone also has to realize that Batwing at SFA is the exact same layout as X-Flight. The coasters are the same height, speed, same amount of inversions and they are clones of eachother. I think people also have to show the same respect for Batwing at SFA. X-flight is a little too far away for me to hit this summer but I will be going to go on Batwing. It will be great!! Does anyone know what coaster is a clone of what? Is X-flight the original or is Batwing the original. Or do both coasters copy another coaster like maybe Stealth. I do not know personally.

Batwing and X-Flight are clones. The are inspired by Stealth and they vary from Stealth by having the ending corkscrews modified to heartlines, and added helix at the end, and a duel platform loading station. There maybe be a few more changes, but i think i hit the highlights.
