Thursday, October 11, 2001 7:13 PM
I have heard so many names given out for X but no real one. What does thta X stand for?

Names i have heard

1.Xsctacy

2.Xtreme

3.Xciting

4.X=Unkown
My Idea

X means X or like a government black project Project X or something.

X= uknown was probably the idea. It would not be Project X sence a coaster at Legoland has that name.

X stands for Xtremely unoperational:)  I think it actually is refer to the fact that it is considered a 4-Dimension, sort of the unknown dimension.

X, because it's a unkown and never been done.  It's a prototype, so it gets a informal name.

maybe they couldn't think of a name so they gave it a letter.

I think Xtreme sounds cool ! Or mabey it is just  there code name for 4th Dimension, Like Alton Towers has Secret Weapon and they just keep it it's code name. Who knows.

X is an overall cool name, plain, simple, and the logo makes it look "High Tech" .

Maybe it has something to do with the X-Box.
Maybe the real name was going to be Viper, but then there was already another coaster at SFMM with the same name so they decided to just pick a letter. LOL

maybe the shape of the seats on the vehicle?  I know its a stretch but it seems to fit.

Here's a thought that's too easy; Generation X. Just a thought.

If I were CEO of SF, I would think to myself.....Lets just name it X, then everyone will come up with their own opinion and debate about it.  (Kind of like the "33" on the Rolling Rock bottles) :)

The first two drops also form the letter X. Supposedly Gary Story saw an early drawing and simply said, "X".

So Gary is responsible for that awful name?  He's sure responsible for just about everything else that sucks about Six Flags, so why am I not surprised?

LOL!  I hold Gary responsible for most of SF bonehead decisions.

You mean like putting a coaster called "Medusa" in an old-west themed area and painting it greenish-yellow and purple. There was a really skillful theme decision.

More likely than not, it stands for the letter X.  Nothing more.  Not a bad idea, really, because it keeps people like us talking about the ride even though it has yet to open.
