The X-Coaster at Magic Springs & Crystal Falls is based on innovative technology developed by the ride manufacturer, Maurer Söhne, that makes it possible to experience inverted ride elements without shoulder restraints. This is only the second ride of its kind in the world and this one features the highest upside down inversion in the world.
When the riders leave the loading platform, they are taken for a vertical ascent of 150 feet, at which point the car performs a thrillingly slow quarter-loop backwards, which has the riders hanging upside-down. Then the riders are sent on a 360-degree corkscrew roll, followed by a plummeting vertical drop at more than 65 miles an hour.
