Now let's get Great America's up and running.

Who knew that Millennium Force went 100mph? Apparently the people who wrote the article do.

This reporter is also mis-informed on verticle drop inverted coasters. Can you say V2 and Superman?
Just a couple of G-force junkies!

I agree with MF. Let's go 3 for 3! Get SFGA's up and running, then experience the real fun.

FoxNews Channel covered the opening of SFMM'S Deja-Vu. The reporter was actually heard saying "This is Torture!" Guess Vekoma strikes again! BTW, Anybody elso find the name Deja-Vu a little ironic for a cloned coaster?

I live in WI and i am dying to have deja vu open at SFGAm! I am going there for fright fest and i think it will be open then.

I think it's kind of dumb that the same name is used for 3 of the same rides. Why don't they do what they did for Goliath and Titan? Same coasters, different name.

Actually, Goliath and Titan are slightly different. (One extra helix on Titan before the brake run.)

Sweet, MF goes 100 mph now and pulls 5gs, SWEET!
Sarcasm aside, it's great to see that everybody is loving this ride from (gasp) Vekoma. I think that we have made Vekoma out to be much worse than they really are. Can't wait until next year when I get to ride it!
Please disregard anything said by me that is incomprehensible, incoherent, or just dumb. I am and will be drained from the arduous school year, thank you!

Titan and Goliath ARE NOT
the same coaster, similar yes...but NOT
Shoulder restraints? We don't need no shoulder restraints!

This reporter is absolutely right in the fact that this is a great coaster and the drop is amazing. Typically when you think of boomerang, or any vekoma coasters for that matter, you dont think breathtaking drop. This is now my favorite drop of any any coaster. Yes better than the huge Goliath, S:TE Appolos and Alpengeist. I was getting rather scared going up that hill, looking straight down. The u hit the top and plunge, total airtime, your stomach flies. And before youre done enjoying it, You hit the boomerang.

I just wonder since DV is now running, will SF finally pay Vekoma or still hold out on them?

ONE MORE THING YOU KNOW WHAT WILL BE REAL NICE IF VEKOMA MADE ONE MORE SUPERBOOMERANG THIS TIME WITH A 300 FOOT VERTICAL DROP WITH THE LOOPS BEING OVER 200 FEET IN MID AIR. NOW THATS WHAT I CALL A HIGH EXTREAM ROLLERCOASTER IN THE WORLD ANDIF THEY DID MAKE SOMETHING THAT HIGH I WOULD VOLINTER TO BE THE TEST DUMMY AND HAVE MY FUN

After a long wait and 7 trips to georgia, I finally got to ride De Ja vu. I have to say waiting in line having the ride have 2 break downs was a little intimidating but at the same time very welcomed because I didnt have to wait very long 45 in line vs 3 hours as several people we had talked to that day. The vertical drops facing forward and backwards was awesome. I also have to say I really like the restraints and seating on this ride much more comfy! So as for the time it took Great ride hope to see more new rides in georgia soon!!
