X2 Didn’t Quite Make it This Time
X2 has become stuck between the first Fly to Lie and the second Raven Turn. The ride was making a test run so there are no people stuck but the ride has been closed for today and probably will be closed tomorrow. Now there are cranes that are attempting to dismantle the 5000 pound trains to take them back to the station.
Here you can see where the train got stuck. You can also see how it would be uncomfortable to be in the front seat.
My guess is that they pulled the trains up to this point to make it easier to get them off of the tracks. There aren’t any anti-rollback devices here.
I also find it strange that this happened so close to X2’s tenth birthday, it was just over a week ago on January 12.
