X continues testing as opening day nears

Posted Sunday, September 2, 2001 2:36 PM | Contributed by xbombman

X tested several times yesterday with improvements over previous test runs. The rotations definitely looked smoother and the loud noise going through the raven turns was not as evident. Opening day definitely does not seem too far off.

Does anyone else find it insane that it's September, and we're still looking at pictures of rides that haven't opened?

Intamin is hilarious. Anyways, I can't wait to ride this thing for my upcoming birthday! What a present! (It better be open!)

Look at it this way, Goliath opened WAY early (feb of 2000), what comes around goes around.  For now, at least Deja Vu is open, and it's a great ride!


Of course, I am itching for X to open.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

I don't like it when media, and even park officials themselves, say when a ride is SUPPOSED to open. Look at it this way, both Deja Vu and X were supposed to open in the spring of this year (we're talking about April, here) and look how long they have both been delayed. That's mainly one reason why I'm not really expecting it to open this year (which it most likely will not), but I am hoping it does for certain reasons (mainly, my birthday! hehe) but I know not to count my chickens before they hatch, so I'll just wait and see.

x will open in 3 weeks or less

If X was in a normal park, then no it wouldn't open this season.

However it is in SFMM, in Southern California, which is open year round. It will open this year, and at this point looks like it will be in a month, or maybe less.

Willow? Yes, my name is Willow. Would you stop pecking on me on this big droooopppppppppp......

Magic mountain may extend its season this year to allow more people access to their new rides
