X-Flight was removed from Geauga Lake after the 2006 season and relocated to Kings Island where it reopened the following season under the name Firehawk.
Guests at Geauga Lake (formerly Six Flags Worlds of Adventure) used to take flight on – X-Flight – a flying roller coaster. This Vekoma designed Flying Dutchman model uses a unique train with seats that recline to a lying down position. Upon reaching the top of the lift hill, the train inverts, positioning the rider in a flying position. During the 3,340-foot circuit riders experience the sensation of flight while going through five inverting elements – Lie to Fly, a 66-foot tall Vertical Loop, the Horseshoe and two In-line Twists. To increase capacity, the roller coaster was designed with a dual, side-by-side loading station.
