NPN November 2011 Poll Results / X-Flight Update

I had to wonder which of Six Flags new attractions for 2012 was our readers favorite, so I asked just that for our November poll.  Turns out it wasn't even a close race...

Six Flags Great America's new X-Flight, a Bolliger and Mabillard Wing Coaster came in at number one with a commanding 56% of the total vote.  The ride will be one of only two in North America when it opens in 2012.

The massive free fall known as Lex Luthor's Drop of Doom at Magic Mountain ended up in second, with around 14%, followed by Superman: Ultimate Flight at Discovery Kingdom in third with 13%.  Both rides will be giving some unique experiences with the open at their respective parks next year.

Six Flags New England's transplanted Goliath ended the vote in 4th place, while Great Adventure's group of new and renovated rides ended in 5th.  The remaining attractions final results can be seen above.

While on the subject of X-Flight, the park has been sharing some great photos of the construction work lately.  Above is an aerial view of the work site, showing off that many footers are now underway.  All remnants of the former attractions that filled this space appear to have been removed.

Lots of track for the ride has also been arriving, like this twisty piece here.  Check out all the photos the park is sharing at this link.

Oh, and our new poll is up for December, check it out on the left!
