X Coaster was a Maurer Söhne built sit-down roller coaster located at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls in Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA.

HistoryEdit

When X Coaster opened on May 27, 2006 it became the park's 6th roller coaster and the first and only SkyLoop to be built in North America. X Coaster did not operate during the 2009 season, but was running again for 2010.

On October 5, 2012, Magic Springs and Crystal Falls announced the removal of the roller coaster at the end of the 2012 season to make way for plans to expand the Crystal Falls water park for the 2013 season.[1] Problems with capacity and down-time were also likely reasons that the ride was closed. It was not closed for the 2013 season as of now.

The ride is likely to be relocated to Elitch Gardens, however it was discovered that large parts of the ride had been welded together. This delayed the ride's relocation until 2014.
