X-Flight Question

Tuesday, June 25, 2002 10:26 AM
I was wondering why there are only two trains now and not three. What happened to the green train?

That's what Id like to know. That black and green train needs a wheel replacement badly. Those wheels are running on there last threads, and they look awful.

I think they should contact Six flags America my home park, cause our version of the Flying Dutchman, reclines on the lift hill and uses both stations

What do you expect guys? Vekoma isn't helping any with these coasters.

What? The green is gone? But that was the one I rode on :( . I guess it is for the better.

Yeah, X-Flight is in pretty bad shape. When I ride it last week, only like 2 and a half of the rows in the line were filled up, and it still took about 45 minutes in line. While, last time I went on Batwing, and it was running two trains, it was a walk-on. Well I geuss that SFA never gets especially long lines...

I actually kinda like reclinining in the station.....well excpet fr having the sun right in your eyes on the lift. Anyway watch X flight in action some time, I was amazed that the wheels never turn unless they are the road wheels at the time. The upstops don't even spin thee is so much slop in the Vekoma wheelset design.

This is how SLC's throw you forward or even a tiny coaster like Runaway Reptar thros you every which way.

The other train is probably still in the shop. It probably hasn't even been rebuilt from the off season knowing SF.

A ride op told me that they "got rid of the 3rd train for good"... don't know how much credibility that one has considering it came from a ride op. ;)
