X2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain is a cutting edge one-of-a-kind roller coaster designed to break all the rules! X2 is the world's first 4th dimensional thrill. Unlike traditional coasters where the trains only parallel the track, X2 is pushed to the extreme. For the first time, riders race in prototype vehicles that can 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. It's no wonder why X2 is one of the most unusual roller coasters in the world and one of the most popular attractions at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
