Question About Deja Vu

Monday, April 9, 2001 11:32 AM

I was just looking at the specs of Sfog and sfgram's deja vu and seeing that sfog is taller than sfgram but they both have the same track lenghth and i am wondering how can that be? don't they need more track if it is higher, i was going to check out sfmm specs but i didn't find any, is sfgam the smallest of the three deja vu?? i was just wondering about the track thengh, did they stretch it out some way to make it that way or was it a miss print?

Actually, the Six Flags website says that the Georgia towers are 177 feet and the Chicago towers will be 178.

I don't really think that a few feet will make a difference, but I think SFGAm's is a little taller. Either way, they both look like great rides!

Do they get pulled right out of the station by the cable? The trains I mean.

SFoG - 177 ft
SFMM - 196 ft
SFGAm - 178 ft

We're getting three different heights from all three different SF parks recieving the Deja Vu coasters.

Actually, I have a feeling they are all 196 ft. high. Going to their sites, SFMM & SFOG both say that their DeJa Vu will be 196 ft. but SFGAm's says it will be 178 ft., also, they are all 65 mph. So I bet they are all 196 ft. It's a possibility that they were all announced to be 178 ft., but are now winding up to be 196 ft.

Kinda like Cornball Express. CCI said it's first drop would be 75 ft., but Indiana Beach's official press release says it's 79 ft. So...

ALL 3 DEJA VU's ARE EXACTLY THE SAME!!!!! The reason the heights are different is because of the terrain at the different construction sites. Just because it's 196 ft tall doesn't mean it will drop 196 ft.

If you were taking the information about Deja Vu from the SFoG site, I would like to tell you that they basically copied and pasted the information given from SFMM's "X-treme Announcement" press release. Even the picture they used of Deja Vu was a rendering of SFMM's Deja Vu. SFMM announced officially the height of 196 ft, whilst SFoG or SFGAm (I don't recall which or maybe both) announced the 178/177 ft statistic. But I don't want to argue whether or not they're all the same because Six Flags just likes to confuse people. Period.

That was the point I was getting to.

Also, kRaXLeRidAh, you're right. I didn't realise that...but I do still think they are all the same height (why would they make clones different sizes yet all have the same speed and track lengths...hmmm...

Of course, if SFMM's model is built on top of a hill, berm or similar rise of land, it could be said to be 196 feet above the ground....
