Well most Georgians know that Six Flags over Georgia is opening early this year for operation on March 6. I was wondering if anybody knew if DeJaVu would be making its debut at this time also. Enlighten Me :-)

Those who haven't ridden Deja Vu will experience Deja Vu.
Seriously, it's totally up in the air. It wasn't open on the last operating day of the season, if that's a sign of things to come. I'm just excited about the new flat rides - finally!

I hope you do get to experience this amazing ride. The back row is a religious experience. Flying through that station at 60 mph screaming your brains out is awesome!

In addition, standing at the gates waiting for the next ride when the train goes blazing past you is pretty amazing as well. It ain't far away, and it displaces a huge amount of air, so you get quite a gust of wind coming off it as it tears past you, what seems like a couple of feet away.
Still waiting for my first front row ride, I keep hearing that the front car, with nothing between you and the ground on the first tower, is pretty awesome.

I prefer the back by far. The front doesn't really get that much "face time" with the ground and I MUCH prefer the ~200' freefall.

True, Andy, but on DejaVu both the front and back have a freefall from the same height... ;)

hehe, I was gonna mention that George...
But I'm not a huge fan of backwards travel, and if you're in the front, the BIG drop comes when going backwards....ouch my head, LOL....;)

Im a big fan of the front myself, and I prefer back on most rides usually. But in the front on Vu you fly going frontwards into the, which is one of my favorite parts.
I also like freefalling backwards seeing the sky getting further and further waiting for the pull out and then the high G's going backwards into the vertical loop. Then while going backwards you get whipped almost out of your seat on the last part of the cobra roll in the front.
Im so used to riding in front, whenever I ride in back the ride feels slower through the first half and I always think we are going to valley.[/end my long description of the front row ride experience]
This is one of the first times though I have actually heard people talking good about Deja Vu and Im sort of surprised. Did the people who use to say "It's just another boomerang" finally ride it or something?

The mechanics said that Deja'Vu would be ready by opening day.BUT i don't believe them because they were still putting the train together last Sunday in the mechanic shop. And they would have to do a lot of testing before it can open.
NOTE: Batman's trains have been painted grey. And Shake-Rattle-Roll is almost ready. I think all they have to do is put in the lights and sound system.
I am the Asst. Foreman at the Mindbender this year for the moment. I will also be working at the Batman too.
