X2 Media Day 2008

Today was X2's Media Day at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Now you're here to see photos and videos of this new ride in action so we will not dissapoint! You'll get a rediculous amount of both! =) First off, I just want to say that the new FX really *DO* add to the overall experience. The music sound track was great! The fire effect was fantastic! The coaster still "rides" about the same as it did before, so if you're looking for a smoother ride, try the inside seat. Either way you'll have a blast (litterally) on the newly transformed X2!

And now, a little bit of video for you including the opening ceremonies and some onride X2 Footage!

If this video does not stream in your browser, you may download it HERE!

And yes, it's true! An on-board audio system has been installed that plays everything from Rage Against the Machine, Metallica, Aerosmith, and....Frank Sinatra?!?!?

A nice plasma screen has replaced the old "X" painted on the wall of the station.

There it is! X2! Cresting the hill.

And most importantly...FIRE!!!!

These guys were hanging around....JUST incase! =)

The trains all decked out with thier spiffy looking speaker system.

The coaster rides very similar to how it was before. So if you want a smoother ride, sit on an "inside" seat.

Since it was media day there were a lot of cameras there.

Marcie and her riding buddy look *slightly* nervous...

Yay! That's more like it!

Just about to crest that lift hill....

Gooooing Down!

X2 is just as intense as it used to be.

Train closeups!!!!

We were here to see the results of the "Transformation"

This is the "At Home X2 Kit"

Mr. Jay Thomas, Park President and captain of the ship tells us all about X2 and how we could catch on fire!

Tim Burkhart talks about how X2 dropped 18,000 pounds on the Jenny Craig system. Way to go! =)

And with the spew of confetti, we get to see the improved X2 cycle for the first time!
