X is a Vekoma enclosed roller coaster located at Thorpe Park in Surrey, England. The ride was marketed as the "world's first backwards roller coaster in the dark." It was themed around the idea of 'being trapped in a computer virus'. The ride had several modifications for the 2007 season, including improved queue line lighting, new video and sound effects, and a new control cabin. However, the queue line video ceased playing after a year and the television screens are now switched off. In 2010, X:\ No Way Out intermittently operated with the safety lights turned on, meaning the ride was sometimes ran with the interior of the building being visible.
For the 2013 season, X:\ No Way Out was renamed X. The trains were turned forwards again and the attraction was rethemed to 'a journey through light and sound'.
