X-Flight Restraint Limits

Saturday, May 19, 2001 6:43 PM
So far what I've heard is their nice, roomy and comfortable, but How do they suit taller, and larger people for that matter? I will probably fit (6'5"-230), I just hope I'm not jammed in their so much it will hurt. Also is their an official weight limit like stealth?

I was there for the commercial shoot yesterday and they are so roomy! I'm 5'9" though. Anyways, I can't wait to ride it again.

Here are the restrictions according Refreshing look:
54" minimum height
6'7" maximum height
265lb maximum weight
Hair beyond shoulder length must be closely and tightly secured.

Guess I need to go on a diet.

Titan, a flying coaster is made by Vekoma. The only three in the world are Batwing at SFA, Stealth at PKD, and X-Flight at SFWoA. They strap you in numerous places, then going up the lift hill the train reclines. Right at the beginning of the first drop you flip over and you basically "fly" like a hang glider through the entire run. The G's you pull are almost unbearable!

Are you on your stomach? And is it painful (the Gs)?

The G's will be painful to most (not pain really, nauciousness[sp]). The restraints are comfortable. The little vest thing is awesome. You basically can not move anything except your arms. It still feels like you could fall out when you are on your stomach, though. It seems to me like people of any size can ride because there is 101 different size variations. But, everyone must follow the park size regulations.
