In 2000, S&S made the Thrustair 2000 prototype at their facility in Utah. It consisted of the 165-foot hill and not much else. Paramount Parks bought the ride and opened it in 2001 as Hypersonic XLC (which stands for Xtreme Launch Coaster) with just some minor changes. The ride was dismantled in early 2008.
