SFMM continues work on its three new attractions

Posted Friday, July 20, 2001 4:33 AM | Contributed by Karl DeAngelo

A lot has happened in the two days since my last update. The 4th attraction has started to go vertical with two of the three towers partially up. X is now tracked partially through the station turnaround and has supports going up for the second Raven Turn. Finally, Deja Vu has begun it's test runs. I didn't personally view a test run but I saw the train rocking between the loop and second tower.

Its the same attraction coming to Cedar Point. It's a S&S Sling-Shot ride.

Takes what? They aren't competitors.

Their construction is at the same stage any way.

While I can understand the excitement surrounding the construction of these rides, I think it is kind of sad that it is the middle of the summer, and NONE of the major attractions that this park announced last year (aside from Goliath Jr.) have opened, or are near ready to open.

I completely understand that problems happen, and would much rather see something done right, even if it means being done late... but by now, Deja Vu should have been open a month or so, and X should be done. Are my expectations too high, or are any California Buzzers frustrated?

In the end, I'm sure the rides will be so awesome that everyone will forget that they were delayed!

Nope, Rob, not frustrated at all. Deja was late due to issues that were not anticipated, and I didn't (and don't) expect X until October anyways. Everytime I find myself getting impatient with the construction of a ride, I just remind myself it's going to be standing for at least the next 50-100 years (Windjammer excepted, LOL) and I'll get plenty of rides on it someday.

I'm not frustrated either. In fact, I think X's contruction is going by VERY quickly. The last time I was there (7/12), a guy told me that the contruction of X would be finished by August. I kind of think he's right. And now that Deja Vu is testing, I'm happier than ever.

Wow, I haven't posted in a while.

Frustrated? Over an oversized Invertigo? LOL! I'm in no rush to ride Deja Vu. X, on the other hand, is something I'm looking forward to with great antici........pation.

Wait a minute, if Deja Vu's train was rocking back and forth between the second tower and the loop doesn't that mean something was going wrong with the testing, shouldn't the train have gone back to the station instead of rocking back-and-forth? Did I just misunderstand this, or was it really a problem?

I wonder how the operators will be able to get across that track? Perhaps ther'll be a pedestrian bridge inside the station!
