I am thinking about heading over to Magic Mountain this coming sunday, November 4. I was hearing things about Deja Vu being closed, is this true? Also, how does everyone here think the lines will be this Sunday?

SFMM's Deja Vu has been running consistantly since the day it opened.

I was at SFMM this past sunday and deja-vu was running smoothly. I cant imagine that I had any trouble runnig. But the lines are just ugly. I got on it tiwce the day i went and each time it was a 2-hour wait. But it was well worth the wait. But the time it takes for people to get loded off and new people loded on was awful. I timed it and it took roughly 6-8 minutes. But once again it is woth the wait.

get there when the park opens and run all the way to deja vu, the line should be no more than 30-45 minutes

It is possible that Deja Vu may be closed for some particular scheduled reason, but you should call the park to confirm it. The ride itself has been operating flawlessly since it opened, but the boarding times are unavoidable at this time. Hopefully they will do something to speed it up. I was there on a day that everything was a walk-on. An even with only 1-2 trainloads in front of me it took about 15-20 min to get on. I limited my rides to 2 per day, but the ride is CERTAINLY worth waiting for.
My other car is a Giovanola!

To Loaded G. What day was that, when everything was walk on?

Nickickick: My suggestion is that you check before you go. I was there on 10-28 and DV was operating all day, but broke down twice that I know of. We went right to DV at opening and the wait was a little over an hour. If you're lucky enough to be at the very front of the line when they open the gate, you can probably get over to the ride ahead of the crowd. Instead of going completely around the mountain, try a shortcut by going up past Viper and then past Roaring Rapids. This route is a lot shorter.
DWeaver: DV at SFMM has not been running consistently since it opened in August. I was there on 9-23 and the ride broke down for at least three hours in the early afternoon (we luckily rode it in the morning and late evening); however, during our visit on Oct. 6th DV seemed to be running every time we were near it but on Oct. 19th it was not working at all (our early riders event got cancelled). That day they were completing the evacuation platform under the butterfly turn but they did test it a couple of times when we were on Psyclone. I'm sure there are other down times that others know about.

I visit the park every weekend and it's always running. It runs FAR more consistantly than their flying coasters, and provides a much more thrilling ride.
I'm not saying it never breaks down(what coaster doesn't).

So, every day Deja Vu will have a long line. But what about a Sunday (tomorrow) for all the other rides?

Of course Deja Vu will always have a line, what kind of question is that, think...new ride, and what do new ride have, long lines!!

When I went on Deja, it was a saturday, and it was at like 1 and the line was only 30 minutes. The bad thing is that it breaks down every 3 trains, or at least it did when I went.
