Visitors to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure met disappointment as the new X-Flight coaster did not open on Saturday, as announced it would.

I was there on the 19th. Trains were running periodically. Some with people on them. Only SPECIAL people I guess.

Yes, it was.

I was one of those SPECIAL people, and managed to get 18 rides... :oÞ

Hey Guys! How did you get to be one of those "Special People" ? Were the restraints comfortable? I Would Like to think that they Are! I Know that Vekoma is know for its painful rides. Is this comfortable like a B&M Coaster? Such as B:KF? All the Details from the Special People Would be great! Are you Sure about friday, CoasterDude?

Relic - This time, I am pretty sure X-Flight will open this Friday, after all if its closed over the memorial weekend, People will be even more mad. I actually agree that this second delay will help the ride, It was obvisous before this commercial shoot not mush testing was done so if SFWOA keep testing the ride non stop till Friday, there is no reason why it wont open.
I just hope its fully up and running when I go to the park in Early June

I rode El Dorado about 100 times watching X-Flight Test Run, and I Witnessed that the Train goes up the lift at like 2mph and There is A Sertain Point on the Track where the Seats Tilt backwards, and Right After All of the Seats Are Tilted backwards it Gets Stuck. I saw mechanics trying to fix it on Sunday and They test-ran it one time and it worked Right at Closing Time. It SHOULD be open By Friday.

Yep, I for one saw the train on the lift on Sunday.
