Sweet! I didn't know it was going to have this element. I wonder if some people will get a little wet? What do you all think?

Wow thanks for posting those vids Tom, it takes that in-line roll much faster then I had expected X-flight looks to be the best of the 4 Wingriders imo.

I agree Rob. This looks like it will be the most forceful of all of them. Can't wait to see the ride reviews and POV videos. What interests me the most is the ride experience of the outer seats over time during those forceful elements.

IMO the only reason Wild Eagle was getting so much lip service was b/c it's at Dollywood. I'm not saying it isn't a good ride but come on if you take the wingrider trains off of it, it would be your standard B&M floorless coaster. There is nothing unique or original about WE besides the trains, I'm not saying that's a bad thing just stating the facts.

I have always said X-flight looks to be the best and those videos are proving me right. It's like B&M said this one is going to Six Flags we have to turn it up a notch lol. I just know X-flight looks to have much more kick then the others that have debuted so far. Also SFGAm has done a great job
of theming and making the area looks great.
