Has anyone ever ridden Deja Vu at SFMM yet. I heard good reviews about it. Sorry for asking, I live 3000 miles away from the park. :(

You may want to check in the "Trip Reports" section of the site later today, and there may be some reviews of it. That is if it actually did open today

I rode the ride at media day and enjoyed it alot. The drops are awesome and the cobra roll and loop are very disorienting. My only complaint was that it is a little bumpy for a new steel coaster. I still give the ride an 8/10.
There are several pics up at my site, so be sure to check it out.

xbombman, I never knew that was your site. It is great, keep up the good work. The pictures of Deja Vu in action look great.
Bull rides: 88
Shockwave rides: 61

I rode yesterday with xbombman, and I have to agree with his review. The drops are great, the inversions are disorienting, but it is bumpy. Not headbanging rough, but bumpy. Also he forgot to mention how cool going up/coming down that first tower is!

It wasnt very bump-y today when i rode it, I think that they fixed that by testing it a little bit so that the track and wheels could warm up.

When did you ride Intaminrocks? My first ride in the morning was very smooth, and then every ride thereafter it got worse and worse as far as bumpyness(for lack of a better word) is concerned.
If you look at the wheels as your being pulled back in to the station its easy to see the problem! The wheels dont stay on the track! You can see the wheels bouncing up and down!
Another interesting note: You can reach up and touch the sensors without a problem if you are tall enough.

I was going to go to Six Flags Magic Mountain today but now I can't because there is a tornado warning at the airport I was going to go to. It is in merriville indiana. There is a tornado touchdown so My family decided not to go until next week. :( sigh

I rode today and I have to say that it is my number 4 coaster now! I "grayed-out" 5 times on it! The first drop is the best and I was surprised that I didnt get sick!

I just got back from SFMM. DV is really fun, MUCH better than what I expected. I give it an 8 out of 10. Bumpy, yes. Headbanging, NO!! The transitions themselves are VERY smooth.
The backwards vertical drop was my favorite part, a real stomache truner (in a good way)
Capacity was rotton, I estimated between 300-450 pph. Vekoma advertised 1100, what a pipe dream!
"X" marks the spot in 2001!
