I have to say, the picture of the carousel puts a song in my head...

"Wonder World, Wonder World,..."

(This probably wouldn't have happened if USA hadn't had Eddie Murphy movies on last week, and I hadn't watched Beverly Hills Cop 3!)

Those pictures really put into perspective how HUMONGOUS Deja Vu and V2 really are...take a LONG look at those aerial shots...I'm trembling...

Awesome shots, Joe! I'm a little jealous of V2's station and its surroundings.

Joe has done it again, thumbs up to the master coaster photographer.

In the spiral spike, the train's backbone forms a straight line? I thought it was a heartline spiral, with the rider's hearts lined up. Which leads to my question, do you feel lateral motion?

There is no way the track length is 2700ft as stated on some sites. Another number is 630ft which is more like it.

I think the track footage you're hearing takes into account the multiple passes.

I personally don't feel any lateral motion on that spike.

Great Pictures!!

There is really no lateral sensation on S:UE

Have there been any recent rumors on the completion of Deja Vu?

Deja Vu is complete but "they" still have to install the cable system and test the ride, which could take awhile.
