That's probably the idea with X-Flight (which I'll try not to call X-Wing), the latest creation from the design team that brought us Raging Bull, Superman: Ultimate Flight, and Batman: The Ride. X-Flight will make its debut at Six Flags Great America in 2012, the first ride of its kind to open in the U.S.
Check out the photos below, but to see VIDEO of it in action, check out my full story HERE.
