Anyone else losing intrest in Deja Vu?

I don't know about you, but Deja Vu is losing interest on me. Right when ya think it's going great, BAM! Another flaw and more delays or Deja Vu. I will probably ride it only 2 times(front row and bck) then never go on it again. It's just getting REALLY pathetic. I think SFMM, SFOG, and SFGAM should just get their $ back and build or save the money for a new coaster that might acually work!

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!!!! The Deja Vu coaster is having so much problems that SFMM, SFGAm, and SFoG should just tare down the ride and get their money back. I'm losing interest because when I went to SFGAm in July, I hoped that Deja Vu was open, but no. I'm going to SFMM in December, and if the Deja Vu isn't open there, I'll just lose interest in all.

Why are you losing the interest in this coaster? Only because this coaster will open 6 months later?

Why should'nt I? In a way, I helped pay for Deja Vu going to SFMM so much this year and I wanna see 3 RIDES AT SIX FLAGS MAGICMOUNTAIN FOR 2001! NOT 2. Not trying to be mean to you but hopefully u get my point saying that I wanna ride Deja Vu and X on the same day SOMETIME in 2001. I don't care if it's freaking December 31'st, I want this thing to open. It's pissing me off.

I haven't lost intrest in them, but I just have got to wonder whats really going on.

I mean is it a safty factor we are dealing with, or is it a complete hardware and engineering flaw? Something just doesn't add up to me.

Some people need patience. I did not expect the delays that have occured but I will gladly wait for them to open the ride when it is both operating at full speed and the with the proper safety precautions in place for people to ride it. The last thing needed is for more people stuck/hurt/killed so the media and the government to fuel the fire that has been caused by accidents that have already happen this year. I feel sorry for both Vekoma and Six Flags that this has happened but I am sure that both companies have the best intent in making sure that these rides are fully operational before they are opened.

KILL DEJA VU!!!!!, just kidding. I think it will be a good ride when it opens (if ever). Just think of it as a new coaster opening for 2002 that had to be started in the 2001 season. I wish I could have ridden it this year but oh well, next year!

Personally, I never had any interest to ride Deja Vu. That particular type of coaster does nothing for me. I have some of those in my coaster list, but only to say I rode it. I much prefer a coaster that takes me somewhere...not back and forth through the same section twice. Boomerangs just aren't my thing. Sorry.

All I can say is that if they are as uncomfortable and rough as regular Invertigos, forget it...melt them down and make some hyper coasters!

I just wish that one of the two companies, either Six Flags or Vekoma would make a statement and tell us what is going on, and maybe even perhaps a guess as to how long the problems might take to fix. We have a right to know, since we are the people who pay for new rides when we pay for park tickets.

I totally agree with nasai. I've never understood the interest of others in Deja Vu. I mean I personally don't like repeating the track over again. If people do that's fine with me. I just don't understand why. Yeah, Deju Vu is supposed to be a one of a kind coaster, but I'd think spending the money on something full-circuit like a hyper or something would be a little better. That's just my opinion though.

Losing interest? Didn't really have much to begin with in the over-blown inverted boomerang. I'll still ride them at least once when I encounter an operational one.

Parks could open themselves up for more whining and complaining if they were to do this. I agree with their strategy here, remain tight lipped until the ride is ready. The GP doesn't care all that much, so why should SF make a big to do for a couple of impatient enthusiasts?

Guys, guys, that may be so. However if and when the engineers get DV to work perfectly (yeah right,) you can be sure it will fun to ride it. Imagine being pulled up vertical & going through the giant inversions only to go up vertical again & repeat everything backwards. It's like a really twisted up Impulse Coaster (subtract & replace the Impulse with Vertical Lift.)

I am so starved of coasters down under that I wouldn't mind a GIB. (The best coaster here other than T.o.T is Lethal Weapon - a Vekoma SLC+!)

Actually the anticapation is growing for me. It is just really annoying. I haven't thought about deja vu's for a while and then it was pretty far along. I can't wait for it.

i lost interest in it a long time ago. when i saw the video it looked awesome with the vertical towers and the big loops. but once i heard all these bad things about it construction wise, not working, motors bein takin off. i just started to not care. plus now when you think about its a big *** boomerang. its nothin spectacular at all. i just think that the old style boomerangs are whats keeping Vekoma in business, possibly more things. but just look at it. SLC's suck after about a year of operation. and whatever new rides they innovate never work. Invertigos work nicely but they break down a lot. So i see it that the old style boomerangs is what is keeping Vekoma in business cause they are the only things that actually work and never have bad aging. and even then the cars get stuck in the boomerangs. so i see it that whatever Vekoma builds is gonna have problems. they have to be one of the not so great engineers in the world. some major work needs to be done with their rides. they need better engineers

To tell you the truth, I just find the whole situation a riot act. As each problem comes up I laugh harder and harder. This reminds me of the Mr. Freeze, Chiller incident.
