Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

You must be new around here if you think I’m a “boot licker” for SFMM. 😂 I’m just someone who realizes covid enforcement is a joke everywhere now and understands that if you chose to go somewhere

Good to see testing begin! Yesterday I got one of the smoothest rides on X2 I've ever had! No headbanging whatsoever! Put the heavier person on the outside and you will be pleasantly surprised. Never ride in a row by yourself and never put the heavier person in the inside. Those are fatal mistakes.

 

Also, parking just went up again to $18.

I agree! X2 surprised me! In fact it was one of the highlights of my grad night yesterday. I was in line teaching my friend how to defensively ride and had him sit on the inside seat even though he's twice my body weight. To make it worse, they were assigning seats and had us sit on row 7 of train 3. The result was an extremely comfortable and painless ride. The last raven turn didn't even do its injustice! I don't know what it was, but I have a feeling that was a one in a lifetime experience.

I also have to give mad props to the Batman team. They literally sprinted down the rows checking harnesses even though there was practically no line!

Have they actually tested yet? Or are we just jumping ahead of ourselves because they put a train on the track?

Interesting! That would definitely explain every ride I've had on X2. My last two rides were by myself on the outside, and it just about killed me. Next time I gotta bring a dumb heavy patsy to ride on the outer seat

RE: X / X2

 

The inside seat is ALWAYS less bumpy than the outside seat. Also, the 2nd to last row & last row seem to give me a relatively consistent good ride, whereas the front half almost always beats me up a bit. That being said, After hundreds of laps, I've learned "HOW" to ride X2, and I always have a great ride!!!!

Sorry to bring this back up but I stumbled completely by accident on TPR's X2 media day video and noticed that the seat shaking did not occur when the new trains were first added..therefore it couldnt be something built into the trains. Either it's something computer controlled that was programmed later, or (as I tend to lean towards after watching this) it is caused by wear and tear on the gears over time but perhaps for one reason or another didn't happen on the old trains.

Can't be "computer controlled" since there is no computer other than the audio on the train...

Doesn't some sort of computer run the car/seat movements during the ride? (Not really sure that that's the case, just taking a guess here)

No. The seat movements are primarily generated by a second set of rails on the track itself, then by any give the internal mechanics go through while the train cycles.
