Seeing how X is going to open Very close to the End of the 2001 Season, isn't it safe to say that we're not going see X clones or other 4-D coasters untill 2003-2004. Most Theme parks already sellected their attractions for 2002. There wasn't any time for these theme parks to get a reaction to X. But there just might be those parks that want to take the chance!

Six flags has already purchased two 4-D's for next season.  however, no one yet knows where they will be built or whether or not they will be clones or not. Going out on a lomb, I would think they will be clones of X, knowing the history of Six Flags.

I hope they open it this year. I think they'll try to have it open before their Halloween bash.

I'm pretty sure that X is the hypercoaster that SFWOA is trying to get permission to build up in Aurora.  Then again, they already have a flying coaster, so who knows.

It has been confirmed that two 4-D coasters (not necessarily clones) have been sold. X was designed for Six Flags Magic Mountain's land, so I doubt we will see a clone. Also, it has not been confirmed that Six Flags bought the other two. My bets go to a park in Asia (they always get all the good coasters) and a major park in the United States.

Don't doubt X clones for a second. If two 4-d's where actually purchased, then I think we'd see o one go to either SFGADV, SFGAM, SFWOA, SFOG or SFA.

my guess is sfgadv and sfwoadv . but then again sfwoadv has x flight and although its not a 4-d it is the closest thing to it . but if  sfwoadv got a 4-d i think it would be better than cp

What makes you think that? SFMM has a ride themselves that was designed for another park's land, B:TR! I think the shape of X would be a good cloning shape, just as B:TR is.
I do agree with you though, I recall someone saying at a event at some park (SFGAm, I think) they were shown 2 model 4-D coasters, neither of which were X. That would be cool if one of them got built at SFGAm.

Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?

Batman:The Ride's layout was built and designed on FLAT, EVEN ground. X sits on a parcel of land that is basically a "slope" off a hill. So in order to install an exact 'clone' of X, you would need to dig some 15 feet below grade for the first drop and remove dirt off one side of the ride to form a 'slope'.

kRaXLeRidAh:I'm not trying to argue youre point, because, sure, they may just make another 4D design for another park, but look at Alton's Air, it looks like thry're mining for gold, and i know they need to do this, because of the height limit, but it shows that parks are willing to dig a bit to add a new attraction, if they really want it.

Or put the rest of the ride 15 feet higher.. Which would be the logical way to do it..

If you look at Arrow's history,  their coasters are built to fit the specific needs of that park, even if the layouts are similar. The only pure clone I can think of are the Great America "Demons". Can anyone think of any others?
