I went to SFOG in mid-June and Deja Vu was running almost all day. It didn't open right away with the other rides, but was open by noon, and stayed open all day. I can't say if it is still running now, but it was when I went in June.

I can say that on July 5 it was running until the weather went south, but it was lightning so i'm sure the weather is why it shut down not mech. or anything

According to park mgmt. (John Odum), DV will generally open later because of the time it takes to inspect and set up for daily ops...it comes down to having DV *or* having several other rides open when the park does.....as usual, SFoG made the right call, at least IM(H)O...;)
It seems today, that all you see, are violins in movies, and sax on TV....

It is a toss-up whether or not it will be open on any given day. For example, it was closed all day yesterday. However your chances of riding it are better than they were last season.

It seems that they are operating it on a consistant basic, for the most part. However, expect long lines when it's open. I got in line at noon and waited an hour. When I got off it was two hours the rest of the day, if not more now that summer is in full swing.

Well i want to throw out another question about the deja vu. I have never been on one and im taking a trip to SFOG this year. Where is the best place to sit on this coaster?

The back. I like the sense of height, plus the strong G's on the forward ride. I will say that, despite the lesser height, the front is actually a more freightening experience, going straight up with nothing underneath you.

I'd have to say the front. I rode the back once last year and the drop was great, but the view in the front while being lifted up the front spike is even better. I haven't ridden in the back this year, but I've heard it is very rough.

The back is definately the best IMHO. It allows you to enjoy that first freefall for a much longer amount of time than you would in the front. The freefall in the very beginning is also my favorite part of the ride.
