I’m not surpised X2 won, but I’m not sure why people like this ride. I don’t really like X2 except if I’m in the inner seat in the back row, but anywhere else and the ride becomes extremely painful for me. My favorite ride at Magic Mountain is Lex Luthor Drop of Doom and I have no clue why that is my favorite, because its just one drop. My favorite ride of all time is Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point. Thanks everyone for a vote on your favorite SFMM ride and I hope you had a happy new year!
