X-Flight now runs two trains...

Saturday, June 2, 2001 10:25 PM
For what it's worth, X Flight adjacent to Geauga Lake ran two trains all day Saturday, at least until the deluge hit. The switches were working great and both stations were in operation although there were some crowd control problems at the split point in the queue (the attendant there wasn't directing enough people to Station #2).

Yes, I rode it. No, I'm not giving a review tonight.

Excellent! Thanks for the info, Dave. In another post I asked the status and was very disappointed to hear that there was a one train operation with an 8-10 minute dispatch time. Two questions: With the two train op do the trains still recline in the station, and did frequent breakdowns still occur?
Thanks! (I hope the capacity is decent when I visit in a little over a week)

The trains still reclined in the station (that's really not pleasant. I hope they can get the recline-on-lift feature working.) and I didn't see any shutdowns when I was waiting. I rode twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, and when I wasn't waiting or riding, I was nowhere near that ride, so I don't know if there were any breakdowns or not. The ride did open about 45 minutes late.
Should you ride the thing, I suggest that you get the lap bar as tight as possible to maximize your comfort; the shoulder restraint is far less critical although the ride ops don't seem to see it that way, which is probably why my back hurt when I got off.
