Where the seats spin as the ride is moving. X is the worlds first 4-D coaster.

And accually, to correct you, it's 4th Dimension, not dimensional. I read it as dimensional in some newspaper, but it's wrong. Check Arrow's website if you don't belive me.

this is why arrow calls it a 4-d:

When we design rollercoasters we describe the path of the ride using X's, Y's and Z's. To describe the spin or rotation of the riders as they follow the ride path we needed an extra dimension to describe that motion. Hence the 4th Dimension.

Would the 4th dimension be lettered as 'W'? Lol, just goofing off. :)
