X-flight G-Force>?

Does anyone know what is the pos and neg G-forces on the new X-flight at Six Flags worlds of adventure? I have heard a rumor its above a 5 but i find that very unlikely considering most designers try to keep the g's at 4.5 max and the only 5 g in Ohio i know of is Face off at PKI. I have been on Face off many times very disorienting but a great ride. It does seem to me though that laying flat on your back looking at the sky and going backward into a loop would be quite disorienting. Most people I talk to say that if face off did not go backwards they would not be nearly as dizzy. The feeling doesn't last though on face off and i would think x-flight is the same way.

I dunno the exact numbers on the G's, but I know many people that went to the shoot said they were incredibly large and some older passengers may black out.

The Pens will win the Stanlet Cup in 2002!

It was the only ride that made me dizzy. It was a whole lot more intense than Face/Off. The G's are VERY sustained. The two places I thought they were the highest were the loop and the turn before the twists. Thank God the ride is slooow, or I would definately pass out if the speed increased at all.

The G's are highest in the loop and helix. And believe it or not, the ride is running faster than it was at the shoot. I was there for media day and couldn't believe the difference, however, it was also raining that day. I was a little disoriented after the first ride, but if you ride it repeatedly as we did, your body gets used to it. Don't exactly what the G's are, but they are heavy and as someone said before, sustained.

Thank you for riding America's Roller Coast
