Construction Continues at the Mountain

Posted Tuesday, March 27, 2001 3:21 AM | Contributed by RRcGoose

Now that the rain has stopped in Southern California, construciton at Magic Mountain has been thrown into full gear. Footers have been poured for both X and Deja Vu, and vertical construction is no more than a few weeks away.

It's about freaky time they start construction.

The way its looking I won't get to ride X -or- Deja Vu when I'm there in June...

Mamoosh's avatar ain't looking good. But of the two I'd say Deja will open first and you might have a good show at riding that.

john peck's avatar I wonder how SFMM's Deja Vu is still not started vertically and the other 2 DV's are nearly finished. I mean, Georgia's is nearly ready to roll.

Mamoosh's avatar John: I can answer that in one word: rain. So Cal has had triple the rain this winter, over 15 inches so far. In fact the joke is that we gave Seattle our earthquakes and they gave us their rain.

I think we will see Deja spring up during the month of April with rides beginning sometime in May. The other two went up quickly once they got started.

I would honestly not expect X until late June or even July.

Best Coaster: Millennium Force
Worst Coaster: Project Stealth

What are they waiting for? SFGAm Deja Vu has all ready way into construction.

I think the heavy rain season, combined with lack of man-power has led this delay. I think things will pick pretty quickly now. As for the record, unless CP announces two coasters by August, or X gets delayed into next year(doubtful), the record belongs to SFMM. On the other hand, it looks as if CP will open their season with the record in tact for a few months. Keep in mind though that if CP announces their 2002 plans too early, that will give SFMM plenty of time to counter act. I love these little cat and mouse games that parks play. *** This post was edited by DWeaver on 3/27/2001. ***

Yes, it wouldn't STOP raining here for a while. But now we're drenched in sunshine - as it should be in SoCal. They have no X-Cuses left! Get to work!

staticman00's avatar well, its not like Illinois has had a mild winter either. I know for a fact the CHicago area got in the range 120 inches of snow total over the months of December, January, and February. When its that cold, it can be a little tough to work, but they somehow managed....

And what's with the stop watch anyway? Unlike SFGAm and SFOG, we got a coaster last year, a 255ft monster called Goliath. SFMM can take as much time as they want.

I think vertical construction for Deja Vu might have started today. A giant crane was on site "doing its magic."

Drat. Now I'm sure I won't be able to ride Deja Vu during spring break. I was really looking forward to riding it. Oh well, maybe I can get out to SFGrA sometime over the summer. Well, at least I have X-Flight to look forward to.
