There's something that I've been pondering for awhile. When SFMM came out with their "X-treme Announcement" press release last winter, it stated that their Deja Vu would tower 196 FT and would be the 'tallest of its kind'.
Then SFoG popped out with their 2001 announcement and on their official site, copied and pasted SFMM's press release information onto theirs and used it as their own. But on SFoG's "New" portion of the site, the SFoG published version information on their Deja Vu states that it towers 177 FT high.
Then SFGAm posted their Deja Vu statistics and they claimed their Deja Vu to tower a height of 178 FT.
Since it is a good prediction that they are 100% models of each other, that their track length are the same. But that's not concluded officially yet.
I do think this may have to do with elevation changes, but even with the slight decrease of ground level makes a coaster taller because it is measured from the ground to the height of the tallest portion of track.
So is SFMM's Deja Vu really the tallest of the three. And is that why in their press release stated that it would be the "tallest of it's kind" even before SFGAm or SFoG posted anything? Well we'll have to see. But this was just something I had to bring up (I know it has been before though).

Actually SFoG's will be 196 feet and I believe the drop will be 170 somthin. The preview center inside SFoG has all the stats.

I'm 99.9% sure that all three Deja Vu's are totally identical. Any height differences are an effect of the different elevations and land formations of the different parks.
