After a three month delay, Six Flags Magic Mountain's Deja Vu is finally open to the public. The ride has been getting rave reviews, and most agree it is a great addition to the park. Check out ACN for videos, photos and a ride review.

ACN rocks for videos!!  I love the music they choose for them.  Deja Vu looks awesome and when I ride it in December I am sure it will be great.

Yeah, Deja Vu opened, it's a cool ride, and no one died. Where are all those doubters now? ;)

Let's not forget that the SFGAm version still does not have a train on the track.  Vekoma ain't out of the woods yet.

Hey, is this song like the theme song to DeJa Vu or something? It's an incredible song and i'm thinking of maybe downloading it. Anyone know the title?

Bull fan, don't underestimate Vekoma, maybe they're remodeling the trains or something, maybe they will put the Face-off style cars instead. It would probably be really cool if they do. :)

Ya Deja Vu kicks some serious butt.  The song is called "I See Stars" by Robin Fox.

Leave Vekoma alone! As the story goes, SFoG got the train from FONT face=Verdana size=2>SFGAm and does take time to manufacture a coaster train... *** This post was edited by PxPxPunKrAwKeR on 8/28/2001. ***

Me and My friend were in line for verticle velocity talking to an employee of Six Flags Great America.  This guy said "yeah, they were half way through building the thing and they finally figured out that it wasn't going to operate saftly so they had to tear it down and restart.  Six Flags isn't too happy with Vecoma!"  I still can't wait to ride the stupid thing!  Verticle Velocity kicks*****though! I've been on it 50 times!

J Risden:  don't always listen to what ride-ops tell you...that info is not totally correct.

Deja Vu sounds great but whats this about a maximum height limit of 6'3"? Is this mandatory or just advisory?

Tallguy:  The posted maximum height is 75" [or 6' 3"] but unofficially they are allowing riders who are about an inch over that to ride.  While I am not 100% sure about the reasoning behind this maximum height [set by Vekoma, not the park] I'll speculate that it's because the wheel wells are within reach of the seats.  There is also very little leg room in the middle two seats but I doubt that is as much of an issue. BTW...the Vekoma flying Dutchman [Stealth, X-Flight, Batwing] also have a maximum height *and* weight.

The key to riding would be to let someone else stand at the gate and as soon as they open scoot to your seat and pull down your OSTR before the ride ops notice you!

Mamoosh: Thanks for the info: I fear that this may be a more common problem for people like myself (78") as rides get more sofisticated - I'm just hoping that the new B and M flying coaster  won't have the same stringent restrictions.

Another way a tall person might be able to ride is if they are standing next to an even taller person. So if you are say 6'6, find Shaq. :)

i don't get what all the fuss about deja vu is all about. it's pretty much just a Two Face- The Flipside clone, and no one talks about TF: TFS anymore!!!

Uhm, PKDStar01, a Two Face : The Flipside clone? I had no idea that it had vertical 90° lifts at 196 FT, with a layout that crosses over itself, forming an "x", and reaches speeds of 65 MPH. Yeah, that's just like your typical invertigo alright. (sarcasm ends).

INVERTIGO
• Height : 138 FT
• Angle Of Descent : 45°
• Speed : 55 MPH
• Rolling Stock : Back to Back Suspended

GIANT INVERTED BOOMERANG
• Height : 196 FT
• Angle Of Descent : 90°
• Speed : 65 MPH
• Rolling Stock : Euro V Suspended

It is basically the same concept though. Only bigger, steeper, faster etc.

Well, you can use that argument and compare a kiddie coaster to Millenium Force. It's the same concept only bigger, steeper, faster, etc.

The layout of Deja Vu is also completely different.
