History[edit | edit source]
X-Flight was going to open on May 5, 2001, but was delayed until May 26.
When it moved to Kings Island, the ride became Firehawk.
On September 27, 2018, Kings Island announced that Firehawk would be closing permanently on October 28. It was subsequently demolished. Firehawk's replacement will be the giga coaster Orion, which will open in 2020.
Design[edit | edit source]
Color scheme[edit | edit source]
When the coaster originally operated at Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom as X-Flight, it had a light green track and gray supports. When it moved to Kings Island as Firehawk, it was repainted with a red track.
Trains[edit | edit source]
2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 24 riders per train. One train was red and the other was yellow. Originally, there were three trains during the ride's first year at Geauga Lake, however, only two had been used since. The third train became a parts donor for the first two. After Firehawk closed, some parts of the trains are now being used as part donors for Nighthawk at Carowinds
