How rough was DejaVu????

I was wondering cause if it wasn't that bed then maybe Verkoma's huge hyper-invert won't be as bad as we thought.

Smooth, no headbanging, only a few slightly "bumpy"  car spots.

It wasn't as smooth as I had hoped it would be, but it wasn't too bad.  Like Kraxleridah said, there wasn't much headbanging, although coming off of the first tower my head tended to get whipped into the headrest no matter how much I kept it back.  Other than that, nothing too bad.  :)

Kraxelridah, CoastermanJ, how do they compare to standard Boomerangs/Invertigos you've ridden. Name some specific one you've ridden, please.  I figure if we evaluate those similarly, I'll be more ready for my trip to SFoG. Thanks!

It's not too rough....great!  Now let's all hope it stays that way!
(Sadly, some of my former favorite Vekoma coasters are now my least favorites due to age)

yeah all Vekoma coasters are smooth the first year of operation but wait another 2 years or so then you'll wont be riding it cause it will give you headaches. the same thing will happen with the hyper invert. unless Vekoma really cleaned up their act whcih i doubt.

I rode PGA's Invertigo during the 2000 season (it opened in 1998) and I found it to be as comfortable as Batman:The Ride and the park's Top Gun. Not very rough at all. I could relate the GIB to the Invertigos a little bit. And comparing it to a standard boomerang...the GIB coasters are definetely MILES ahead of these things. Much smoother, less head jarring, and much more fun and intense.

Sounds like SFoG is a go, but CoasterCon XXV...WILL be there, LA, the desert, KBF, Knott's (more parks care to join in the fun?)...WILL be there.  Thanks, DejaVu riders!

IT's not rough at all, just a tad bumpy in places only like 2. I know that you have to keep your head foward the whole ride while going foward, that's the only way to NOT get your head bumped

I do not think this will age a poorly as their other Boomerangs, here is why. Take a good look at the Butterfly Turn, (or Cobra Roll, or Boomerang, or whatever the heck it is being called these days) that element is usually the roughest part of the "Boomerang" design. DV's is very shallow and not nearly as twisted as the standard Boomer or Invertigo, much smoother transitions. It causes less movement of the train, but still the same feel, only not as violent to the rider.
