"Experience the Xtreme - It breaks all the rules!"
Cutting edge one-of-a-kind roller coaster designed to break all the rules! X is the world's first 4th dimensional thrill. Unlike traditional coasters where trains only parallel the track, X is pushed to the extreme. For the first time, riders will race in prototype vehicles that can now spin independently 360-degree forwards or backwards on a separate axis -- creating an unprecedented "don't know what to expect next" sensation. Perched on the edge of a massive 20-foot wide wing-shaped vehicle, riders plummet 200 feet to the ground - head-first face down -- and race at 76 mph spinning head-over-heels and performing forward and backward acrobatics through the massive 3,610-foot twisted steel maze.
