This is "X", one of, if not the best roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain. It has a rather unconventional design which flips you and spins you in different directions at different points along the track. Quite the ride! I was going to try to get the coaster car as it passed, but my group was leaving and I didn't get the chance.

Things are pretty boring here...even so I haven't been out shooting in a while. Guess I'm saving all my photographic creativity for my upcoming trip to the Midwest.

Speaking of which, I will most likely be blogging quite a bit from "The Lab" while I'm on my trip. It's got a few more finishing touches that need to be added to the design as well as a few other odd and ends, but currently it is on schedule for Monday's release.

Wonderful perspective looking up at that gut-wrenching curve. Nothing like it to make you feel queasy. lol!

Another great angle. Very effective, and perfect exposition even with the sun right in front!

Not "exposition", I mean "exposure". I had some language shift :)

It looks so tame from below. I'll bet it's a screamer in the seat.
