The worst has happend to X!!

Saturday, September 15, 2001 2:10 PM
This news is not for the faint hearted!

I just got confirmed news from a reliable source( a friends dad is a welder for mm- worked on X) that X will not open until the end of the year, if that!  Right now it seems not until next year! His dad said that there is a problem with design of the car's. According to him he said that the ride car's tried to split in two due to the g's. And apparntly the first two test runs were failures. That came as a shock to me because it seemed to run great, but obviosly not. And the second car has cracked too!! This is truly the worst we could ask for. So now their trying to hire outside worker's to hurry the process, so it could open ASAP. This truly is X-TREMLY dissapointing!!!

Nitro239ft I'm just informing you of what I was told. Hey, for all I know he could me pulling my leg- I'm just devistated by the news. Once I get word of the problems being fixed from TR or CB, then we should all be in a better state of mind.

P.S I don't ever remember sfmm telling us that Deja Vu was being delayed? Did you?

Isn't it funny how Airtime88.9 has already ridden X, and  goes to major parks to ride one coaster.

What the hell is the point of your post?!? If you have nothing to say, then don't post. You're wasting Jeff's bandwith.

Natalie, Maybe... he means that he sees X testing on his way to work.

As far as this welding thing goes, I'm not sure. It could happen, it's a prototype. But, why does it continue to test?

(sorry, I can't resist)
So, the real question is, is X all it's cracked up to be? :)

Airtime88.9, I Didn't say you are wrong I just said that I want to hear this from an offical SFMM representative! This is serious! Roller Coaster trains don't just begain to split! Most definatly a highly advance train like X's.

I doubt that this happened. I mean, i dont think that Fiberglass is welded together(i could be wrong) Almost all Roller coaster trains are fiberglass. I would be surprised is X was different.

Well, I've sorta seen the cars for X, the metal chasis parts for the ride are thick. When i mean thick i mean, size of a small support thick. I really doubt this would split, crack, bend or whatever else. Let's just hope the test runs go well and it will open before september 30th.

Well, let us all remember this topic and bookmark it... then when X actually DOES open within the scheduled time...

We will all be able to prove him (Airtime88.9) wrong! As far as I know... I think it's a load of bull. With no real link or news briefs from any other sites, this is just speculation where it's all hear-say from more hear-say!!!

It's like playing the old game "telephone" where things get really distorted from the main source to the final person (Purple monkey dishwasher).

Actually, The real problem is that X is sinking.

Yeah, I heard that X is sinking too. Something about a purple monkey dishwasher, too. ;)

"Apparently the first two test runs were failures."

Um, the ride has tested well over a hundred times...
