I wasn't sure whether I liked X2 or not when I rode it. I wished it had some way to hold your legs like the B&M flyers (Tatsu), I felt like a rag doll flopping around. On subsequent rides I tried to stiffen my legs and I enjoyed X2 more than the first ride.

^^ I rode my first time in the back row, outside seat and loved it still! It was a little rough but nothing un-bearable!

Right. You got lucky. Don't listen to this advice! I've done the outside back row and literally had the crap beaten out of me. Like I said before, take your first ride in the front row, inside seat. Don't listen to anyone try to tell you differently!!!

Also after 10...well 11 years of dreaming about X....or X2 I hope it ends up as a good ride and not sucky

Who am I to doubt the man himself!?

I can vouch for this as well. When I've ridden in the back row there have been plenty of times when I've come back into the station with pain in my calves and a slight headache!

Make sure that there's someone heavier than you in the outside seat, though. Just about any row is bearable and quite nice if you put the hopes ire person on the outside. It makes the world of a difference. If you're in the row by yourself ride in the outside seat. I rode front row inside seat by myself and it was terrible. Outside was good.

 

General rule: heavier person on the outside.

Listen to Robb. Front Row, inside seat on X2 is a pretty awesome. You go any further back than row 3 and it sucks.

 

I'll need to try Mr. Alvey's suggestion. I don't even ride X2 anymore. I'm a lightweight and always end up on the outside in the middle or towards the back. I've not been near the front and on the inside. My experience on X2 hasn't been pleasant. It's one of 2 rides at the mountain that I don't do. The other one is the "Grunt Lantern." Too painful...

Wow thanks guys, advice definitely welcomed. Especially since I most likely would've tried to take an outside row.

Psyched to finally see CA and SFMM! Now just 7 months of saving $$

 

 

Yeah, Green Lantern looks fun but also like it may be torture...and I have to ride Viper...so I may just bring some advil with me in advance.

Never been to Magic Mountain, but why is being light-weight make X2 less enjoyable? Does it contribute to vibrations/roughness?

 

The back rows tend to 'beat you up' - your legs will flail in the air.

 

It's fun regardless, but definitely more enjoyable toward the front.

Luckily on one day, I rode X2 3 times. 1st time was in the back row outside seat and had fast spinning. 2nd time was in the 3rd row inside seat which was enjoyable. My 3rd ride was the most enjoyable and that was 1st row inside seat.

Note: Both sides of the train are equally enjoyable (I don't really care about the inside or outside seat...just my opinion)

The spinning is the same in all seats - it's 'controlled'. There is an extra part of the track that controls when the seats spin.

 

Unless you're talking about Green Lantern - that is 'free' spinning. But they seem to try to balance every train to limit this.

Well I just felt faster spinning at the bottom of the drop because there is a spinning control at that certain part of the track. That's what I mean.

2. You mean to tell me the only ride with a single-rider option is Viper?

 

Umm... No, I don't. Riddler's Revenge and Green Lantern also have a single-rider option, and I also believe Revolution has a single-rider line. There aren't that many rides with them (unless I'm missing any), but at least it isn't like at some parks, including other SF parks, where you have to go through the normal line to get to the single rider line.

This must be my lucky time

Another X2 tip, make sure the restrains are secure tightly on your chest and shoulders! Also the earlier you ride X2 the smoother it will be.

 

I figured it'd be best to do this anyway, supposedly lines are quite outrageous.

Unless we'll get ERT for it???

Listen to the man, I've rode it once, Robb's rode it probably 100+ times!
