Deja Vu over Georgia?

Friday, June 27, 2003 7:29 PM
Can anyone tell me if Delayja Vu at Six Flags over Georgia has been running regularly lately. And what have the mid week crowds been like? Average wait for S:UF. Might be making the trek there and going Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday. Any help would be appreciated, and yes, I know past performance is not an indicator of what next week will bring.

As far as I know, all the DejaVus are still closed.

DeJa Vu at Six Flags Over Geogia is running extremely well. It is operating frequently with only minor breakdowns. Expect to wait around an hour or more. Going on Tuesday and Wednesday is a good decision, as those are among the lesser crowded days. Superman usually has a long line, but everything besides these two rides will be less than 30 minutes.

The SFMM and SFOG Deja-Vu's are running. The SFGAm DV is still closed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the SFGam Deja Vu always been the "problem triplet?" It's like the trouble maker of the 3, just like little kids... ;)

I guess in the grand scheme of things, SFGAm's DV has had the most problems.

I know in the 7 visits to the park this year, I just walk by it and pretend it doesnt exist.

Yeah, I guess that's really all you can do. I was out in Chicago one time last year, (I live in Central PA) and was lucky enough to ride it. It really is a pretty good ride!

Yeah what was that all about.

I thought the SFGAm version was more reliable than the SFOG version last season. I remember hearing that the SFOG version was having problems, while the SFGAm was running pretty good.

You're mistaken. The Great America one opened last of the three, much much later than Magic Mountain's (first to open), and Over Georgia's (second). It also shut down for the rest of the 2001 season, if you even call a few days worth of operation its first season. So no, it is far from being "more reliable" than the Georgia one.

I know it opened last in 2001. I was talking about last season as in the 2002 season. I remember hearing that it was closed alot last year, while the one at SFGAm ran pretty good last year (except the two vallies).

Two vallies? From what used to be going around on these boards, I heard something more like two vallies a day.... but then again, who doesn't like to exagerate?

Two vallies? I thought there were more than that. If there were only two, why did they build that God-awful wooden platform? Perhaps I'm mistaken though...

I was at SFoG on the 25th, and Deja Vu was running perfectly. Smooth Operation with no setbacks or problems. The DV que at SFoG is rather big, and even with a full que, wait was only 50 minutes...not bad at all.

Yep it only vallied twice. The first one happened the day after opening day, when it vallied in between the loop and cobra roll. That was its first ever valley (during operation, and not at the bottom of one of the lifts). After that, they added the valley ramp, and in the begining of August it vallied for the second time in the same spot. That was it.

Its vallied before the second lift before and before the first lift, but I have seen them have it up within a few hours after one of those "vallies".

Edit: For a spelling mistake.

Full queue only 50 mintutes? I guess they improved loading times as that used to be in upwards of two hours.

SFGAm's DV opened last not because it had more probelms than the rest. SFMMand SFOG placed theirorders for it first so Vekoma went along and built them first. Also both of those park's open earlier in the season. V2 was also being built the same year DV was for SFGAm. If you haven't notice it still in the same order because first SFMM DV got back up and going, then SFOG, and now SFGAm is waiting. It'll be running this year, when is the question.

DV ran pretty reliably last year. True, it didn't open until noon every day and it was taken offline early in the fall and it did experience regular downtime...er, never mind. The real problem with DV at GAm is the horrible capacity and 3 hour lines for the ride.

It's splotchy, too. What's that about?

IMHO, time to pack this one up and let it become part of SF's ride rotation program, somewhere in warmer climes. There's a new park in New Orleans where it probably would be a better fit.
