Here is what MS's new X-coaster looks like. There is another one slated to come for next year (is this one even opened yet, and whats with all the late openings for 2004?)

5 G's and no OTSR, sounds pretty sweet!

That looks wild. I want to see it in action.

RCDB does say that this one is still "Under Construction" unless he hasn't been informed on whether it has opened or not yet. Drayton Manor in England is supposed to get the one you're talking about for 2005. It does look strange, but it will probably be really fun. I like all of the smaller unique coasters some parks are adding like this one, Half Pipe at SFEG, and Turbulence at Hershey.

now if only we could get some of themore extreme ones over here (this, MS Xtended spinner, EuroFighter, heck even a screaming squirrl), I'd be happy!
Shows that you can put thrills in small packages, like Danny;).

I just saw some pictures a week or so ago of the completed coaster (structure wise).
Count me in as one that would love to give this thing a ride. If the seats and restraints will be exactly like the rotating test car they had at IAAPA last year, then expect a very comfortable ride.

Well, when I get rich enough to buy Camden Park, I will import some of those smaller coasters over here, then you'll have a reason to visit WV more often, Sean:).

Fix up the old Tbolt Express first, Clint. ;-)

Well, that, and moving King Cobra to its happy new home (Darn Six Flags for scrapping Shockwave!), and then I'll start importing, Tina.
Wouldn't you love to have a mini-Dragster less than an hour away?;)

Am I the only one who thinks the Gerstlauer 95-degree drop coasters are "fugly but fun-looking"? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'd knock old ladies and kids over to ride one of those, but they are anything BUT pretty...
editor's note: Our legal dep't informs me that I should clarify that I would not REALLY knock down kids or old ladies, nor do I endorse such behavior. It was *illustrative*, indicating my excitement to ride such a coaster. Do NOT try this at home....or in a park. ;)

The coaster looks like the Six Flags Cool Coasters set. The way the track unnaturally bends.
-Congo Falls - 90 rides (one day)
-Murder of the Orient Express (1980-2003)

I think it is horribly ugly. The ride itself looks unique and I would definetely and do want to ride it, but the two different types of track reminds me of an intamin hyper, only on this ride, they don't blend so smooth. The I-Heartline(inverted heartline) track looks so much bigger than the rest of the track. It still looks like a fun ride though.
Did anyone notice last year at IAAPA that MS was using NoLimits to show the design possibilities of their coasters with these new seats?

Didn't Vekoma use No Limits to render their Booster Bike prototype?
