Cool. Can't wait for the one at SFGAm to get finished.

Great pictures. I wish every website were layed out this effeciently, and as a bonus it's quick too. I can't wait to see the completed Acrophobia.

What is the deal with those trains? the back rows of seats appears to pushed out to the sides. While this seems to be a good concept, the people in the front row of the next car won't be able to see anything. Also, aren't some of the seats supposed to be facing the other way?

My name is Jason, and I'm addicted to coasters.

They don't take long to build once they get rolling. You are right Jdancisin what about the next row? what would be really cool if the front cars of the second train went in between th back cars of the first train and on through the train.

That went up pretty fast once it got rolling. SFMM's might get up even faster since they have 2 cranes working on it!

Hey! I just had a thought. We here seem to have concluded that you will have a worse view if all the seats faced forward. If they were face-off, wouldn't it make more sense? 4 across face-off with 4 across would have pretty crumby views if the rows were straight (in the middle). Using these V-shaped trains would provide a much larger viewing area.

It's set to open later this month!! Acrophobia will open later on in early June.

What is life without ups and downs!?!?

I got to see this bohemoth today and boy am I itching to ride it! It looks like it's going to be a blast!

It also looks like it is going to use a chain lift and not a launch to propel it. It had 3 large fly wheels that looked like the kind for a chain lift. BLAH! I was hoping for a launch.

Acrophobia is coming along nicely too! The tower is red yellow and blue striped. I'm wondering what the seats will look like. This promises to be a blast this year at Georgia!

Glad I got my season pass today!


Flying over metal is a beautiful thing!

Wow, that looks fantastic! This should make for a really fun and wild ride. If nothing else, this will make the normal invertigo/boomerang obsolete!

With this incredible coaster and X on the way, SFMM undoubtedly deserves the title of the world's first extreme park. Now all we need is a giga (over 300ft.) coaster.

What a bargain @ $3.5 million! (per Chicago Tribune) I can't think of a ride with more bang for the buck!

janfrederick's avatar The flared cars ssem like a good idea. Hopefully they'll be face-off as well so's we can peep the pretty women that might get sat across from us...;)

that is terrific that "deja vu" is completed down at sfga. this definitely makes me want to take a trip down that way and check out this new and exciting attraction. maybe six flags st. louis will think about adding one in the future.

Déja'Vu Super Boomerang's use a cable lift. See the big rolls of cables in the pictures of the parts that were on the parking lot - two of those are for DV.
