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.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
"They're called coaster geeks." :)
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
Man, they are really excited about that keyhole....hehehe
