X-Flight Opening Day Giveaway

To celebrate the grand opening of X-Flight at Six Flags Great America we're having a small giveaway of X-Flight items provided to NPN by the park that one lucky winner will take home.  X-Flight will open to season passholders for a special preview on May 12th and 13th, and then have a grand opening for the general public on May 16th.

The new B&M wing coaster has some impressive statistics, including five different inversions, 3,000 feet of track, and a top speed of 55 miles per hour.  X-Flight is one of only 4 B&M wing coasters in the world, providing a truly unique ride experience.  For more on the ride itself, be sure to check out the great mini-site that Six Flags Great America has set up for the coaster.

The grouping of items (an X-Flight carry bag, water bottle, and luggage tag) will go to the person who can correctly answer this question:

How many individual track segments make up the length of X-Flight at Six Flags Great America?

If you'd like to take a guess, you can send us an e-mail with your answer.  Please include your name and a preferred e-mail address where you can be reached should you happen to be our lucky winner. (Names and e-mail addresses will not be used for any purpose other than this contest.) Only one entry per person will be accepted.  Entries will be accepted until midnight on May 12th 2012, winner announced shortly thereafter.  If two people are equidistant from the correct answer, the person who does not exceed the correct number will be declared the winner. Should there be a tie, we have a special question prepared to use as a breaker.  A special thanks to Six Flags Great America for the items!
