calm down, Tom. that's just typical SF bs. sure, SFMM's was the first the technically open. but in a few years the only thing that people are going to remember is that they all opened in the same year making them all firsts. kinda like with B&M's hypers. the first ones opened the same year and are credited as both being the first B&M hypers. is it really that important that MM's Deja Vu opened a few weeks ago? Hoffman is right, this is still a first of its kind and you should notice that that part isn't quoted. ----------------- Jay and Silent Bob have left the building ~Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Perhaps it was the first to start construction? Who cares, it is open and I cannot ride it still cause I do not live there anymore. ------------- ---------- Any resemblance to living or dead people is purely coincidental.
It is all in the false marketing that Six flags is notrious for.
Look at their website alot of photos are not the real rides at each park. As for Deja vu it is a descent ride. I am not real fond of Vercoma. Seemed a bit rough to me and I guess I don't like when the upstop wheels do not contact the running rails in spots. Standerd Vercoma type coaster.
The idea of the coaster is a great and novel approach. I have ridden the one in Georgia. They announced the same thing on media day when they opened it. That it was the first of its kind and that kind of thing. Anyway go ride it you might like it. It is pretty fun.
All three are the first ones, they were all built at the same time so they are all the first ones IMO. Also Six Flags doesn't care they own all three, and it helps the ride sound better if they say its the first of its kind. It sounds and looks like a good ride and ill be there the last day of Fright Fest to ride it!
Now I'm even more disappointed than ever that my trip to Fright Fest was cancelled. Geez, is everthing in this world against me, O well I'll be going there in May at the beginning of the season for sure!
I think they were going for the fact that it was announced along with the other two, as three first of their kind coasters to be built simultaneously. That's what I'm thinking...
My theory on the delay? Weather in the winter. The other two, in warmer climates, don't have to worry about the conditions. Anyway, maybe because the steel expands in warm weather, and most was put together in the cold, there was some intracracy with this coaster that made that whole thing a problem, that isn't on other coasters... I.E. the vertical pulley system. I'm just grabbing at flies here...

Typical six flags false advertsing. DejaVue wasnt open!!!!! Alot of people who traveled to rided it were very upset. You shouldnt advertise a ride that may not run, they had to be aware of potential problems in cold weather and shouldnt have advertised it as being up and running.
