SFoG's Deja'Vu Test Problems!!!

Friday, June 8, 2001 11:57 AM
Today 6/7/01 Deja'Vu at SFoG was testing with many noticeable problems with the brakes, cable lifts, and slow train movement through the cobra roll. The brakes would come on 3/4 of the way through the loop. The cable lift's brake on the 2nd tower doesnt catch the train on the 2nd tower to take it up and drop it backward and the train valleys. The train goes through the cobra roll very slowly the loop is fine.

I hope they can get this thing going soon. It looks very good.

Also one of the engineers went out to where I was standing to watch Deja'Vu test and I asked when they were going to open it. He said hopefully in the next few weeks.

X is coming to an east coast park in 2002(most likely six flags). An Arrow Rep said so in some conference thing. Six Flags America got Batwing, SFDL doesn't make enough money, SFGAv got Nitro so the only other park i can think of is SFoG

Hey, what about SFGAm! Just because they got two new coasters doesn't mean anything. SFMM got Goliath in Y2K, and X, Deja Vu, and Goliath Jr. in 2001. Don't count out any park!

V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing! Check out my site: http://6flagsgreatamerica.homestead.com/SFGAhomepage.html

SFGAm is in the Midwest. SFMM got those because they are open yr-round and are trying to beat Cedar Point in the Coaster Count record!!!!

Hey - I thought this topic was about Deja Vu, not X !?!?

Anyway - Deja Vu at SFGAm still looks a long way from opening. Yesteday (6/8), it looked like they were putting the cable on the first tower. No cable on the 2nd tower yet, and the track is still missing a section. Of course there is NO a train on the track either. It also looked like they were doing a lot of inspecting - they had guys in a crane basket who looked like they were just checking out random things (one minute looking at something on one section of the ride, and another minute checking out something different).

Anyway - there's your SFGAm Deja Vu update.

No, X, Magic Mountain isn't trying to take anything from Cedar Point. CP and SFMM are not competitors(TM).

SFMM competes with So Cal Parks. Cedar Point competes with Ohio parks...

If SFMM competes only with SoCal parks, why add three coasters in one year? We all know this project has them in the red. The only park in its genre anywhere close is Knott's. As of now they dont have the largest collection of coasters, with 4. It makes no sense to spend so much on 3 new coasters other than to achieve the record thus placing them in direct, though not blatant, competition with Cedar Point. They are buisness's. Everything they do is competative not only with other local buisnesses but with every other corporation in the country invlolved in the attraction of tourists.

I thought we were talking about SFoG. How did the Cedar point vs SFMM get in this thread?

Maybe it is just me but The point is almost 3000 miles from Magic Mountain.

Run horse run.

Jeff is right. No park will directly compete with another that is more than 300 miles away, about 8 states away. This "Competition" theory and misconception about SFMM vs. CP in a "Battle" is very ridiculous. SFMM isn't looking to steal guests from CP's marketing area and vice versa. The reasons as to why 3 coasters were added is because of the highly anticipated opening of Disney's California Adventure this year, and knowing how Disney parks are to the general public, SFMM saw an easy chance to feed off of the very busy market due to the opening of DCA. What else? Theme parks aren't the only things on people's agendas for things to do. Long Beache's Aquarium Of The Pacific, the past opening of LegoLand and their own constant new ride additions, Knott's Berry Farm's strong competition with their recent Perilous Plunge, and the newly furbised Disneyland Resort with DCA & the new Downtown Disney owning this year's spotlight. Three new roller coasters in one year is definitely going to turn tourist heads. I mean, why bother to go to LegoLand if you can go to a park with more roller coasters to ride than any other park in the world? It also gives guests a sense of satisfaction for thier time,money, and achievement. So all of you just stop with this three roller coasters just to get the record bull. In a sense, that might have been the case, but not the primary reason. I mean, if you're going to build two and you're one shy from grabbing the record, why not just add that extra one to accomplish another eye grabber?

SFMM is in for the coaster record. Not real competition. They just want the record for the park with the most coasters!!!

When I was at Park Orientation for my employement at SFMM, one of the Human Resources workers told everyone that every few years CP and SFMM compete to see who can top each other.
