I know its a new coaster going into SFWoA, but what exactly is it??? I plan on going there this year and I wanna know how excited I should get.

A Vekoma Flying Dutchman like Stealth at Paramount's Great America. Although the layout is similar, X-Flight isn't a "clone," as the second half is supposedly different than Stealth's.
That's the basic idea. Other Buzzers will add more info, no doubt. ;)

Until the second turn after the loop, everything is the same as Stealth. Instead of turning over for it's corkscrews, the train stays inverted through the turn and enters two in-line-twists. A final helix will end the ride before the train enters a separate loading station for exiting.
Summary: More flying time and better capacity than Stealth.

Krazy! Thank god I thought I was the only one in the world who knew the layout! You got it perfect!
Additionaly, the track is bright green and the trains won't flip back until it nears the crest of the lift, unlike stealth. This will help alot with loading times. SFO, er, SFWoA has some rough spots when it comes to loading trains.
This flight won't be cancelled!
