Now, it's a matter of time when we find out when this will happen --- and whether or not Eejanaika's dropping floor system will be integrated in X's loading platform, or if its strictly just a redesign of the trains. And when they say redesign...new trains? Or modifications of the old chasis?
The article also talks about X's problematic history, its capacity, and other interesting tidbits...
I don't really understand why they wouldn't use these trains the first time if they are better.
You do realize X was built in 2001 and Eejanaika was built in 2005, right? The improvements to the trains have advanced significantly on this ride since X opened. It's not like Six Flags chose to go with the poor performing trains --- because that's all there was at the time. X is the Fourth Dimension prototype.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Uh oh...new trains! Show of hands: who's gonna recount X when the new trains arrive? ;)
Sounds like a plan to me. They'd change the experience, scenery and they might even work better.

As for the capacity, if dropping down to 5 row trains allows them to change the unload/load protocol (i.e. not have rotate, unload, rotate, move, open gates, lock, check, rotate, check, dispatch) it could definitely increase.

X - Runs, but takes 7 minutes to dispatch, has periods of downtime that lasts for MONTHS, Took almost half a year to open, etc. IM sure out of the 5 years X has been at Magic Mountain it has probably only ran for about 2 of them in total? Does anybody know?
Deja Vu - Its called Deja Vu because riders experience downtime and long waits on X, then go to Deja Vu and say "DAMN I MUST BE HAVING DEJA VU BECAUSE DIDN'T THIS JUST HAPPEN TO US ON OUR "X"PERIENCE WITH X? LOT'S OF DOWNTIME, RARELY OPEN, AND "X"TREME WAIT TIMES."
LOL. Im being serious though guysm which runs more?? Out of 5 years both have probably only ran 2 years total time. I was just wondering seriously, which runs more and for how many months out of the possible 60(5 Years) have both of them ran?
Other than that - Congrats MM, I hope the new trains improve things for X, which I can't blame problems on since it is a prototype and all, same with Deja Vu, which of course now seems to have most of its problems worked out.
