That coaster looks painful unless something is done about the restraints. The zero-G looks looks like it is too sharp to be taken without being rough. The only good parts are the hills that should give some airtime.

Yeah, sorry...not amused!

 

I think that out of 53 of us riding the X Car at Drayton Manor, 2 of us liked it, and only 6 of us were stupid enough to try it again!

 

I hope they make some major modifications to the restraints.

I think I remember hearing that different trains would be used with their launched coasters, but I heard nothing about different restraints. The trains looked cool because the seats progressevly moved outwards in kind of a V shape. Ill see if I can find a picture somewhere.

Looks like I'll be back in Holland next year now. Drievliet, Duinrell and Toverland getting new coasters!

 

I'm least looking forward to the X-Car, because I'm not looking forward to the crushing restraints. I have enough trouble breathing normally!

I saw this on RCDB, too. What a weird, out of place ride to put into that park! I don't think I saw a single person riding rides there (besides me) over the age of 12 when I was there.

I was one of the people on the UK trip who rode G-force more than once (4 times, actually) I thought it was OK, but I didn't like that the restraint squeezed me like a tube of toothpaste as the ride progressed, either.

X-Car coasters are too...short. They need to make them longer. I would like to see like, an extended X-Car coaster. Like...hyper or giga length. With longer trains. But still have some funky inversions that these things are capable of doing. Then it would be more interesting.

And the Vliegende Hollander will open at the Efteling (Hopefully )

That's odd. I remember at IAAPA a couple of years ago, people seemed really excited about the X-Car restraints because you have so much mobility. This is the first time I've heard the restraints are terrible. What exactly is so bad? Do they crush your legs? Can you not move your ankles?

looks like it's going to be great fun. you know it's only got 40.4 mph

( in kph, around 65 ) but it's really LSM thing and the elements would

be kinda unique thing. i guess X-Car coaster will be going to make

brand-new thrills like people's screaming at funky inverted lift!

 

the height will be only around 50ft, X-Car coaster has tons of possibility

that its thing can make bigger thrills everywhere because the park does

not need to use spaces!
