Six Flags vs. Vekoma???

Wednesday, August 6, 2003 2:13 PM
Ok, I've been talking to my friends about how big of a waste Deja Vu was, and they asked me (being the most coasterally educated of the bunch) if Six Flags was doing anything about the major difficulties they've been having. As my brother said, Deja Vu is the most expensive statue ever.

I had no idea, but I figured they had to be. Is Six Flags trying to get their investment back from Vekoma? And just what are the problems Vekoma and Six Flags are having?

Thanks for responding, any feedback is welcome.

I don't know if it has gotten to that point yet. Neither company probably has the financial resources to fight this out in a court. Honestly, I don't know whether it is because one company is in more dire straits than another or what. But whatever this problem is, it needs to get worked out. I'm tired of Batwing only running one train on a inconsistent basis and SFA sure didn't need the bad publicity it got with Two Face.

I was under the impression that Six Flags did fight back early on and that is what put Vekoma into bankrupcy.

Remember, there is no such as bad publicity (unless of course everyone dies). I work right in front of Two-Face, and I haven't seen ridership falter at all. It's also been running solid ever since it reopened. It's not the only rides that have gotten stuck this year (prior to my employment), but somehow those didn't make the news.
If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.
