What an amazing sight it was to watch the massive X train barrel through the course. The train kept a very good speed throughout the entire ride and made it through each element with ease. It actually looked like it may have gone through the second Raven Turn a little too fast I think, but Arrow was prepared for that as there are brackets on the track to add a trim before the Raven Turn.
i cant get to X because i live in VA, but it sure looks worth the ride. my dad said he would take me to MM but i would have to take the trip on his motorcycle-crazy i think. i know it would be worth it, but i dont have the time anyway. but X does look awesome. its a master piece. only true coaster fans notice that coasters are the real works of art in this world!
"Duff Man Says... Ohhhhh Yaaaaa!" Nice photos at night. Thank god it's testing. It's good to see X finally being testing after such a long time.

First off, I have to agree with Lynch. Twisted Rails is a killer site, and I visit it daily hoping to get another sneak at the progress of X. I will be flying to SoCal the second I hear of its opening! In fact, I am MUCH more excited about X than I ever was awaiting Millennium Force. I am not sure why...perhaps it is so radical? Who cares? Bring it on!
