X2 @ Six Flags Magic Mountain Announced

Six Flags Unveils Sequel Coaster | X2 for 2008
X2 - Six Flags Magic MountainX at Magic Mountain was the world’s first 4th dimension roller coaster. Instead of riding above or below the track, riders are positioned beside the track in seats that spin. Here’s a really good look at one of X’s trains. If that doesn’t sound insane enough, Six Flags is taking X2 to the 5th dimension(?) with $10 million dollars worth of audio and visual enhancements.

I haven’t been to Magic Mountain, so I can’t speak to the 4D experience. But it definitely looks cool. I just need that business trip in SoCal and I’m there. For more details visit the official X2 site.
