X:No Way Out, Thorpe Park - Review

X:No Way Out - Review

Thorpe Park

5..4..3..2... No that's not a countdown, it's how my rating of the ride went from start to finish! This is the only coaster I've ridden that actually gave me a headache and made me feel sick at the same time. It's a backwards coaster in the dark with some very lame theming.

It started off okay with a speedy start backwards out of the station. The first drop was decent and featured a very small dosage of airtime. What made the ride so bad for me was that it stopped three times! The first time the ride stops you get undesirably sprayed with mist that comes out more like a jet. The second time it stops you get deafened by a siren and sent into an epileptic fit by a strobe light. The final stop made me feel sick as it came to a rather sudden stop on loading block brakes.

X:No Way Out is a unique ride and starts off quite promising, but by the end of the ride I was glad that it is the world's only indoor backwards coaster, because I wouldn't want to ride another one. I'm sure the ride is popular with kids because they seem to like this sort of thing, especially the girls that sang through the whole ride!
