While you may be right, I think that is pushing it. I agree with you about it being the "____ 4th Dimension" I don't know about the other stuff. If X is a floorless, aren't all inverteds? Just something to think about.

True, Peabody, all inverted's are floorless because one: they are under the track and two: they have no floor. X will break records true, but they will be only records in the floorless and 4th dimesnsion category.

I would even argue that while X may be floorless, the only real "floorless" coasters are traditional style coasters where there is nothing between the feet of the riders and the track below.

Wait? Who holds the record for the tallest, fastest and longest 4th dimension right now?

Just in case you don't know, that was sarcastic. *** This post was edited by goonsta on 4/29/2001. ***

Actually, goonsta, the current tallest and fastest 4-D is the prototype that was built inside the Arrow compound in Utah!

On a 4D, you are perched OFF the side of the track in giant wing shaped vehicle where your seats will spin forwards and backwards on a seperate axis controlled by an extra pair of rails within the running rails. But there's much more to it than that. Nobody wants to explain a complicated ride like the 4D

Personally, I don't call X a floorless, inverted, flying, wooden, stand-up, suspended, kiddie, or toy coaster. I call it an Arrow Dynamics 4th Dimension coaster, because that's what it is.

It's not a floorless,inverted,or stand up it's a 4-D coaster. Anyway it's not floorless it has a place to put your feet.

I've seen some pretty bloated SF press releases--pushing the hype envelope on 'cookie cutter' rides, crowning clones as world's tallest, even questionable inversion counts--but even they won't bother piling all these 'records' on X. It's not an invert, it isn't a floorless (frankly, inverts don't have a floor either) and all of these 'claims' detract from what makes X an incredible ride.

A unique, first-of-kind coaster is a sufficient description of this ride. Even SF management knows they don't need much else.

Exactly, CoastaPlaya.

I'm getting tired of people calling this coaster everything under the sun. It is an Arrow 4-D. It is not inverted because you don't ride directy under the track, it isn't floorless because you don't ride directly over the track, and it isn't stand-up by any stretch of the imagination. It will be the first 4-D opened to the public ergo, I don't think that it can be called the tallest, fastest, or longest. It can only be called the first, and I think that is good enough.
