X Flight — intended to make passengers feel like they're dangling from the wings of an airplane — is the first major coaster introduced at Six Flags Great America since the 2003 opening of Superman: Ultimate Flight.
Read more from The Chicago Tribune.
That was actually a pretty good article. I think my expectations are always low when I read newspaper articles about coasters, but I didn't see any of the usual factual errors or coaster-nerd-offending faux pas, and the whole "inviting in a wing-walker" was actually pretty clever.
Looks like a great ride too - easily the best looking wing-rider layout to date.
The "12-foot drop" has me excited.
I'm expecting to hit this one around the end of July to complete the set of Wing Riders... we'll see :)
Tony Clark was on hand covering the opening for Real Milwaukee.
He cracks my **** up.
Those shots of the riders really seems to capture the fun of the ride. Looks like fun.
All the reviews I have read have been nothing but positive. SFGAm seems to have a winner on its hands.
"They're called coaster geeks." :)
Man, they are really excited about that keyhole....hehehe
