X2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain

The X2 rollercoaster is down for maintenance at Six Flags Magic Mountain, joining the list of thrill rides undergoing seasonal "rehab" at the park.

Magic Mountain does not provide reopening dates for attractions undergoing refurbishment, listing X2 simply as "temporarily closed" on its website. The coaster underwent a major refurbishment in 2008, adding new trains, special effects and paint, so it is likely that the current closure is for more routine maintenance.

X2, previously known as X, was the world's first "4th Dimension" rollercoaster, with the trains' seats able to rate 360 degrees during the ride. It joins fellow rollercoasters Déjà Vu and Ninja on the park's rehab list, along with slingshot ride Thrill Shot.

Six Flags Magic Mountain is currently open on weekends, with its full 2010 season due to begin on March 22.
