In a situation where many question the engineering of the Deja Vu coasters at three Six Flags parks, the Six Flags Over Georgia says that their coaster is expected to open in October. It is already several months overdue.
Even though the coasters are hideously late, don't forget that the launched Premier coasters that were built in 1997 (Mr. Freeze @ SFOT & SFStl & The Chiller & SFGAdv) had problems when the debuted and didn't reopen until 1998. As long as the Deja Vu coasters open this year, the problem isn't that bad.
Hey SFMM, what do you really have to complain about? You're getting THREE new coasters and an S&S tower, and all we got in Texas this year was a slightly improved Goliath! I'd take any of the "junk" that you don't want in your park any day! I might as well, because all we ever get around here is a bunch of JUNK that no one else wants anyhow! If my home park was SFMM, they could take 2 years to open a new coaster, and I wouldn't fret over it one bit. You know why? Because SFAW has been my home park for my whole life! Need I say more? You should have to put up with all the CRAP that we Texans have to swallow! Just ride X until you puke for me, will ya? I'm sure that you'll get over even wanting to ride Deja-Vu within a nanosecond of climbing aboard X! And while you wait for X to open, I'll enjoy the Titan's extra helix for you. ;)
Personally, They should melt down Deja Vu and makes us a nice Intamin Hypercoaster...After all, Deja Vu is only a boomerang. I used to be really excited about it, but now, it isn't anything too special... ------------- ------------------------- Millennium Force: The Future's Riding On It
An Intamin hyper would take up three times as much space, and cost three times as much as Deja Vu(even with all the problems), so I don't think that would make much sence.
And I must say I'm tired of the whining. I hate to sound rude, but I wish some of you would grow up, and let parks handle their business. If you think the ride has suddenly decreased in quality just because it's opening later than expected, guess what? No one's going to force you to ride it.
But to bash Vekoma because your spoiled and think you know better than the parks or the coaster's designers, is arrogant and shortsighted. Now I know why people think enthusiasts are spoiled geeks.
End or rant...

Stop trashing dejavu!! All you guys are so caught up in making the coaster open as soon as vertical construction is done but it isnt that easy! I dont see any of you out there trying to fix the problem! All im trying to say is be thankfull that you will get to ride it eventually and SAFELY!!! If they dont do all this testing and opened it when all of you wanted it might be your last ride on a roller coaster!!! Think about that the next time you trash a roller coaster that has been delayed.
