X's Lift is LOUD

Sunday, September 2, 2001 3:41 PM
I was wacthing X test the other day, and i could hear the lift all the way from Roaring rapids, i am wondering why is this lift so loud, is it doubled anit roll backed, or is it just working really hard to get the train up the lift. and by the way THRILL SHOT IS AWESOME.

Yes, It is quite loud (from the X testing movies I've seen)... but S:TE is loud, so who cares? :)

Its all in the ride!

I dont think so cuase i think Viper's lift is amzingly quit compared to riddler. Bt X's Lift is for no reason just loud. that might be a little annoying when on the lift. Also Collosus is running alot faster with some major airtime when i went yesterday, to bad the midway brakes were still on. And also Some one wrote X in the sky yeterday, while i was on Thrill shot.

Arrow lifts are notoriously loud, always have been, and IMO always should be. I'm glad they don't have Intamin's technology of using static electricity to lift the antirollback while climbing the lift. That would be way too boring. The clank makes the ride that much more fun!

I love the sound of Arrow lifts! So if I get to SFMM, i could stand in the parking lot and listen to it. LOL

P>hey most likely need a pretty hefty set of anti-roll backs for a train that massive.  Also as stated about, the Arrow lifts are always very loud./P>

It could be loud because of the fact that over 40 tons are going up that lift at a time.  That would cause some extreme pressure on the chain and anti-rollbacks.
