Six Flags Great America
X-Flight Media Day
May 11, 2012
It's 3:30 am on a Thursday morning. Where would we be?
In bed like any other sane person? Nope we're not sane...we're at
Six Flags Great America to help break in the parks newest coaster: X-Flight.
The reason we look cold is, well we are cold as it was 40 degrees out.
Here's JCoaster95 from the Negative-G
Forums all giddy with anticipation for X-Flight.
X-Flight's cool sign greeted us when we arrived at the coaster. X-Flight
sits in the County Fair section of Six Flags Great America. It is
where the old Great America Raceway car and Splashwater Falls ride used
to be. There were a few of the Raceway cars sitting around in the
area so hopefully they will be brought back into the park at some point
as they're a nice ride for those not brave enough to strap into a thrill
ride like X-Flight.
As the first rays of sunlight rose above the horizon the shape of X-Flight
was slowly revealed to us as we waited for our ride time to begin.
