No vertical construction yet? When do they plan on opening these?

None of the Vekoma coasters are going to open on time although it looks like X-Flight is the farthest ahead. Although no official announcement date for either X or Deja Vu has been announced I'm GUESSING that DV will open first in mid to late May with X following late June / early July.

Again, those are purely guesses and are not based on any fact other than the lack of vertical construction.

Not even I could create a comment as completely abstract and, well, godawfully ignorant as that.

(I refreshed to find that someone had posted before me, and now I have to clarify that I am referring to Nitro's comment)

I may not find SFMM to be the best of all the Six Flags parks, but no coaster can beat it in my eyes.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that X will be delayed over and over again, it being a prototype, and of course, it being so damn big. I don't see X opening much before July, really.

Déjà Vu, on the other hand will take much less time, and if they start vertical construction this week, they may get it done by May. It'd be a stretch, but I don't see a shuttle taking too long of a time.

It's coming... *** This post was edited by GenuineCynic on 3/6/2001. ***

Late April the Dejavu will be tested. The groundwork is clear and the construction work will start next week. The construction work takes only 5 weeks! We called it Dutch planning!

I dont know how true this is, but does anyone remember the bob sled ride? it used to be where psyclone is now. well anyways i here that construction on "x" will stop and insteAd the bob sled ride will be brought back. but check this out. it will now have a loop in it, and the first drop will be over 200 ft!! imagine a bobsled ride with a loop. truly innovative. cant wait for it to open.
