10 for a number of reasons: ingenuity, suspense, thrills, and a new experience all combine on this ride to form a 10. I wish I could have ridden more than once to see what I really thought, one ride isnt really enough. Its a great ride, you are pretty nervous in the queue (at least I was!), but its a great ride. The flips are the really cool part of the ride. At any rate, its a fast, intense ride that you should try to ride at least twice since you are pretty disoriented after just one ride.

this ride is just insane. i was not very nervous getting on the ride, but once i went over that first drop i was holding on for my life! sheer terror and amazement. i rode it at night so you REALLY couldnt see where you were going. i got off it thinking, "what the hell was that? what just happened?" the most thrilling ride experience ever!

This ride is really fun. I finally took the time to wait in the line (it said it would be 3 hours but it was only 1.5). The only time that I was slightly (only slightly) nervous was when I closed the restraints and realized that I was locked in. As soon as we were released from the station I felt great....after 1.5 hours of waiting I WAS ACTUALLY ON X! Then of course we went up the lift...how slow and boring...halfway up I began thinking, "When will the ride actually start." Then I tried to turn my head so I could see the top of the lift.....but I decided that it was impossible so I turned my partially stuck-in-the-restraints head around and finally the lift speed slowed and I realized that we must have reached the top. Slowly we curved backwards and soared over the supports for the Chain-relief-dip. This was my favorite part because you go fairly slow and you seriously feel like your flying. Then we sped up really fast and were suddenly hurtling to the ground. GODD@MN BRILLIANT FEELING! Then you quickly do Backflip #1, followed by Raven Turn #1, then the drop. The drop was cool because of how the seats switch from headfirst to upright. Then comes backflip #2 and the turn. The suspended turn. The worst part because its rough. Then you have the camelback/flip to put you above the track once more. Then the second, smaller raven turn...while still fun, it is rougher then the first and you dont have a soaring sensation....mostly because its an inside raven. Then immedietly you have the flip to put you back above the track and then the Brakes. AND ITS ALREADY OVER. Overall: A great coaster...but its too short.....especially for an 1.5 hour Queue. Rate: 11/10 who says I cant rate it an 11......oh you do.......oh ok.......your right.....10/10 then.

In my opinion the best roller coaster that Six Flags has opened scence Revolution. You never know what to expect. It was the first rollercoaster that I actualey felt scared before rideing. What a thrill ride.

This ride is awesome! We waited in line for only about 45 mins, maybe an hour tops! At first I was somewhat nervious about riding it, but after the first backflip I really into the ride. I love the first huge drop and although I felt it kinda jerked you around a bit, i still loved it. Fantastic!

TIP: The signs that say the wait times in the queue are almost always wrong. When we got in line the sign said 3-4 hours, 15 mins later we passed a sign that said 3 hours, and 30 mins later we were on the ride. KEWL!

I am of two minds about this ride. On one hand, this coaster is totally fun and enjoyable. On the other hand, its totally overrated. I mean it was intesne, but not AS intense as I thought it would be considering that you go torso side down through a nearly 90 degree drop. There seems to be a ying and yang to this ride. On one hand the harnesses were surprisingly secure considering the way your moving all over the place. Yet somehow it inexplicably seemed to absorb some of the thrill. The flipping was just as much a weakness as a strength. While all the turning of your body made for a delightfully disorienting experience, the idea of knowing what comes next is (paradoxically enough) part of the thrill. I mean I felt like I couldnt really get a good enough "feel" of the ride design, making the almost vertical drop and 76 mph speed feel underwhelming somewhat. The slow loading processes and 3-4 hour line dampen some of the fun (I only had to what an hour and a half. Dont get me wrong though. This is a good coaster with a very unique concept. If you get to the park early, then ride this. This is a cool ride that should ridden at least once. But no more than that for now (and certainly not for a 3-4 hour wait. Im sorry but this ride is amazing, but not THAT amazing.) Maybe it was just too much anticipation and hype for me, but me take was that I had fun, but wasnt blown away.

This ride is the BEST! The 1st drop is great and i loved the rotating loop.:O The only down sides are the waiting time (about 3 hours for 3 min ride S() and the fact that its not smooth. But you just need to lean forward while pulling the harness down and pick the inside seat and its great!

This site kicks ass! Simply put, you will be amazed by the acrobatic nature of this ride. I have jumped and parachuted over 30 times from various aircraft and bunjee jumped from platforms that I now regret (jk)...but those experiences are no match for what I experienced yesterday while on X @ the Six Flags Magic Mtn in CA. I strongly recommend the ride to anyone that wishes to have a story to tell their grandchildren.

I have to say that x is one of the most unique rides Ive ever been on. It seems out of control, yes, but at the same time, the flips are synchronized so ur not constantly spinning. Instead, its kind of like a controled chaos with flips happening just as you go around loops and stuff. The one element of the ride that causes me to majorly bump up my score is the first drop. In a word its unbelieveable. Imagine going up the lift hill backwords then plunging straight down 200 feet. As if thats not intense enough as it is, ur seats also flip backwards just before the drop giving you a face first view of the ground below as you fly right at it...just awesome. Though i came off a little dizzy, I was not as disoriented as i thought i would be which is why I have to give this ride a 10. Anything less would be a discredit to a very unique, fast, and thrilling masterpiece of a ride.
