how close can you actually get to the track, because i was thinking of going and having my picture taken sitting on it?

There is a gate blocking it. You can not touch the track

Too bad you didn't get there earlier...

On my trip, 12-27-00, the pieces weren't blocked at all. I thought about getting a picture by the track, but I was worried about it being considered tresspassing.

As you can see from this (bad) picture, they were just sitting behind a wooden fence. I guess they've been moved.

(Note: For all of my Six Flags Ohio pictures from the same day, check this out: )

I am still wondering where this will be placed. Because where they said in the Plain Dealer doesn't seem possible. Why don't they build it in the back of the park where they bought all that new land.

Im hoping they place it back by S:UE or where theyve cleared out an area behind knight flight. I just cant wait til the construction starts. I'm anxious to see how this will turn out.

CP in 2002, get to the point.

They are in the process of re-routing the road now. It looks like the road will turn into the old parking lot right next to Mister Hydes, go about 100 yards or so, then turn back out to RT 43.

Looks like X-Flight will sit right next to Supe in the front corner of the parking lot. They may open up the utility entrance next to Hydes with a walkway to access the new ride.

I think once they secure this new area of the park, construction will begin. They were putting in what appeared to be fence post when I was by there on Sunday.

Does anybody think SFO will get Arrow's 4th dimension coaster any time soon?

Hopefully, this ride turns out sweet. Still, the pictures look pretty good. This ride better have some good moments. I mean, it better be worth the wait. I still have not been to Sixflags in Ohio.

May 25, It'll be open May 4, the same day the park opens. I would bet on it.

X-Flight is going to be one of the best things that has ever happened to Six Flags Ohio. They need to keep this "new ride" reputation if they want to continue to attract visitors from all around. X-Flight is the only one of its kind in this area. Everyone will come to see it. There is no way they could open it late. According to reports, it is "planned" to open with the park.

Thats good,but does anybody know if Florida will get a flyer in the upcoming years?
