Some "X" news!

Saturday, July 27, 2002 1:18 AM

X has passed it's inspection. The inspection happened yesterday at the park( the 19th date was a rumor and nothing more), and barring any unforseen problems the ride will open sometime next week.

Employees have even returned to their posts for some re-training. X will open with one train as the second train has not yet been finished and tested.

There also have been some small changes made to the queue line and station to help the line move smoother.

Damnit, I've been waiting so long to ride it and I just went on my west coast trip this past 2 weeks. I asked all the employees I could about the OHSA inspecting it and none of them knew what the hell i was talking about. I honestly wanted it to not open until winter this year because I knew if it opened like the day/week/month right after my trip, I'd be really depressed.

X was not a lucky letter for my California trip, (Xcelerator was down the day we went to Knotts)

I feel ya coastingohio, I missed X and Xcelerator when I took my west coast trip in June, luckily I live 700 miles away, and now since I'm out of school, I'll have some time to take off work and take another west coast trip in November, and maybe this time I'll be able to ride the two amazing "X" machines. You can come with if you can find a way down here.

Hey, head to KBF on a weekday. the only people you'll encounter are a few school kids on a field trip to learn about the old west (which of course includes a few rides). EVERYTHING will be a walkon, even ghostrider. SFMM isn't open on weekdays though.

Yeah, the inspection was originally scheduled for the 19th, but the trains were not ready for it. So, they moved it to the 26th. X should be open on or before July 31st.

Good job SFMM and Schilke on getting the system re-designed and fabricated in less than 2 months!

The park invited me up to take a spin next week, but I cant make it.... too bad

It looked to me like parts of the queue were still torn up. Also, send vending machines have been added.

That has taught me to not trust anything with the letter x. (X, Xcelerator, Six Flags...)

Six Flags, the only chain of parks that can manage to have stacking with a one train operation.

Lol, yeah I know what your saying. I'm really going to try not to go to any parks for a prototype in it's debut year. We rode Hypersonic last year but it was really lucky that we did because it was off and on the whole day with delays. Still managed to get three rides on it though.

This year really taught me that I should never do this. Atleast travel a long way just for something like that you know. By the way I love your signature lol.

HOLY UNNECESSARILY LONG SIGNATURE BATMAN!

Hey man, before someone yells at you here, signatures are limited to 3 lines. Please trim your's down from that huge 12 line thing :) As many people have said before, no one care's what someone else has ridden

PS: You spelled MF wrong.

I don't see why any of you are getting your hopes up yet... Is the ride open yet? Have we all forgot what X has been through? Wait until it's open and operating for an extended period of time, then get happy.
