Six Flags Great America has sent us a press release including tons of photos of today's milestone in the construction of X Flight.
Get Ready to Take Flight! Construction is underway for the Gurnee, IL theme park’s newest addition, X Flight, a ground-breaking wing coaster scheduled to open May 2012. Crews have just completed adding the highest point to the coaster’s track, the top of the 12-story drop.
X Flight will take riders on a flight that defies gravity, with no track above or below them. Riders sit in pairs, suspended on either side of the track with their feet dangling, as they begin their climb up a 12-story plunge launching them into speeds of 55mph through 3,000 feet of intense drops and five inversions, including a barrel roll and zero-g roll. One of the most adrenaline-pumping moments on the ride is an extreme fly-through where the coaster speeds straight toward a structure, before making a last-minute vertical flip to fit through a keyhole cut-out.
X Flight is designed by acclaimed Swiss manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard, who also designed Six Flags Great America favorites: Raging Bull, SUPERMAN: Ultimate Flight and BATMAN: The Ride. The wing coaster will make its home in the County Fair section of the park. Construction began this past Fall. X Flight is scheduled to open Spring of 2012.
Six Flags Great America is located between Chicago and Milwaukee and offers fun for the entire family with 14 heart-pounding roller coasters, a free 20-acre water park, spectacular shows, a nighttime illuminated parade and three children’s themed areas.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
^Looks pretty exciting! I'll be going to Great America this summer; can't wait to wait in line for hours for this!
That last photo made me think of two questions, though: How are they going to add the next piece? It doesn't seem like there's anything against which they can guywire that hanging piece. Is there a second crane? Also, what the heck is that one sideways support immediately to the left of the crane for? I thought X-Flight was going to roll out to the right like the Swarm.
