Six Flags Great America Opens X Flight

Park President Hank Salemi prepares to officially open X Flight, flanked by the first official “fliers.”

X Flight twists into its first amazing drop.

X Flight is fast and smooth, and at times disorienting.

The station, which resembles a hangar, is large and open.

Seemingly straight out of Top Gun, the parks first “fliers” get ready to take a flight.

The ride seats two riders on each side of the track.

Every seat on the ride offers a different experience.
