X-Flight: Only 1 Train Running - Why??

Monday, May 28, 2001 5:07 AM
ZWhy do they only have 1 train running for X-Flight. When I went on Saturday and Sunday, all the trains were assembled and the other side of the station was assembled as well. So why were they only running 1 train on the opening week end?

Could be problems with the blocking system. This has happened on many other coasters including last years MF and S:ROS. I'm sure they'll have all three running soon. Just be thankful it's running.

Perhaps becuase they are ready to run 3 trains?? ;)

I am sure SFOFOREVER will respond to this.

It was running one train for many reasons that are very obvious. Although all these may not be correct, some of them may. I am just going by what I've heard and common sense. Here I go...

1.) New coaster, staff needs to be "broken in"
2.) Somehwhat confusing restraints
3.) New transfer, never used like this before
4.) May have something to do with the reclining mechanism on the lift also

I am sure SFOFOREVER will fill you in considering he's the team lead of X-Flight. I think he may be working right now though, stay tuned!;)

Personally I think that the state isn't convinced the park and/or the computer can handle three trains without crashing them or dumping them off of the track.

Of course, if that were true, you'd think there would be an army of people working on it night and day to get it right, but I'll leave that commentary for a trip report...
