SFGAm 10/20, Deja Vu stalls, Eagle gets retracked

Associated parks:

Got to the park at 9:40. Shock Wave's lifthill, drop, and 1st loop are still standing. However, the only supports still standing are the MCBR and the center part of the pretzel loop. Ran to Raging Bull and got first train of the day in the back row.

When I got off, I saw a ton of wood piled up next to the helix. I have pics of this and Shock Wave removal, but they haven't been developed and I don't have a website to put them on.

Deja Vu was open. It opened at 12:30 and closed at 6:30. I ended up waiting 2 hours due to 3 breakdowns. When I was right by the station, it stalled on the second lift. After 5 minutes, they were slowly lowered down into the valley. Then they were sent up again and it was fixed.

I managed to get on everything once and Raging Bull, Demon, Iron Wolf, Batman, and Viper twice.

Yeah I saw that. I was at Iron Wolf when it got stuck. It was really weird even though I have seen it happen before.I dont even try to go on Deja Vu any more. Its not that fun anyway and its allways breaking down and getting stuck.

I saw that happen to Deja Vu in early July.

Deja Vu was a big mistake and will probably be removed in about 3 years due to high maintenece costs. Are you sure the entire eagle is getting retracked or just some of the supports?

I'm willing to bet that a small portion of the red side is being retracked due to some problems that are keeping it from running now. But what do I know? :-)

I'd say the blue side needs to be re-tracked. It can get pretty bad down that first drop going backwards.

The top 3 all time cobrarolls.

2)Deja Vu's (times 3)
3)Batman Knight Flight's
