Maybe I skipped over a section of one of the press releases, but I don't really know what conveys the Deja Vu train. Is it a lift similiar to the original invertigos? Or is it LIMS in the station and on the second spike?
Thanks for any help!

I've studied the system, when in line for boomerangs and invertigos. I assume it will have the same system. LIM's would be cool, but too intense I think

From what I have read it will be an elevator cable system similar to what was found on Millenium Force.

I have been thinking about this a lot....it should be LIMs, being dragged up the first spike by a chain/elevator will push a person against the OTSR facing the ground, could be painful, and CERTAINLY disconcerting.
If they designed this attraction right, they could push you forward through the station with LIMs to get enough speed to get partially up the first loop, accelerate you again to go high up the spike behind you, then LIM you again to gain the necessary speed to go through the entire ride. Ya know, just like S:UE with more elements.
The trip back would be taken care of through gravity.
I believe I read on this board, however, that it will be chains/elevator...
Can anybody speak authoritatively on this one?

Conventional chain lift. Heard right from the horses mouth.

Which "horse" did you hear that from? The Vice-president of the SF in IL said it would be cable driven. Who was the one who told you chain? Curious...

Regardless of cable or chain, you're falling right into the harness, aren't you? Yikes...

Cable driven at that angle? Wow.
You build it, I'll ride it...eventually

The Giant Boomerang (Invertigo and Boomerang) will use a highspeed cabellift. The train will move backwards and when the train arrived at the top of the tower, the train will start the ride.

The president of SFMM was the one I heard chain lift from. However, being president dosent always mean everything :)
