Opinions on X

Thursday, June 13, 2002 3:17 PM
I've noticed that when peope talk about X they write " I think X is an amazing coaster (IMO)......." What's with the IMO?!? Are there people here who don't like X. Besides the whole SFMM VS Arrow issue what problems do you have with it?

Well I've ridden X, and to tell the truth I didn't really think too much of it. The idea and the design I thought were great but the execution left a little to be desired. The ride is fun and I'd love to ride it again, but the thing that bothered me was the motion of the seats. The spinning and all is fine but the seats do too much rocking back and forth and the movement is a little jerky. Other than that the ride is nice and smooth and has some great head and foot choppers. In my opinion though, it's not as great as a lot of people say. That may just be me though, maybe I've taken too many shots to the head on Revolution.

In my opinion, IMO stands for "In my opinion."

Any guesses on what IMHO stands for?

IMO, X is/was amazing. The only coaster that's frightened me since I was riding Gemini at age 11. I think part of the frightening part was the uneven "rocking" rotations Revoluntionary mentions, and the incredible force mixed with the rather unsubstantial looking poles that hold the seats.

I remember chatting with Mammoosh while in line, speculating that X would be a maintenance nightmare. We thought the rotation mechanism would shred itself quickly.

Sure would love to know for sure what the problem is... SFMM, I'm talking to you!

IMO, IMHO means "in my humble opinion."

IMHO, X is a truly great and unique experience.

I've ridden X twice so far since it opened and nothing I've ridden can compare to it. And I can safely say that nothing else out there in the WORLD is like it. Utterly amazing...

X looks great to ride but terrible for waits and operations, The ride has been heavy with promblems from the get go and i truly don't see the arrow 4d taking off after this diaster.

A lot of people seem to get mad when you say something so saying IMO clerifies it as an opinion to try to keep people from getting mad for some reason.

IMHO means in my honest or humble opinion. There are multiple meanings to many abreviations, I just can't think of any others right now.
