How it Works: X2 Coaster Train | Six Flags Magic Mountain

A: The prototype vehicle design allows riders to spin 360-degrees forward and backward independent of the trains primary movement. This has never been done before.

B: Weighing 5 tons, the vehicle has a unique wing-shaped design that spans an unprecedented 20-feet wide. Riders will sit on the outside of the coaster track providing a flying sensation unlike any other coaster. You simply won't know what to expect.

C: Four-foot tall rack gears move up and down following the profile of the seat rotation rails below the vehicle. This gear rotates the seats forwards and backwards throughout the ride.

D: Unlike traditional coasters this ride has four rails. The seat rotation rails bend up and down (slightly) pulling the rack gear up and down which in turn rotates the seats.
