The Deja Vu trains have been put on the track, Hopefully testing will begin soon.

As for X, the raven turn is now complete. Some new turnaround supports have gone up as well.

Footers have been poured for Thrill Shot and pieces were being put on flatbeds.

I heard on danimation about something to do with Deja Vu's trains being the wrong size or something. Something about the clearance through the station.
As for X, well just look at it! It's awesome! Can't wait to go in October.

My God, those are some extreme drops on X! The funny thing is, you could completely drop the whole spinning gimmick, and X would still terrify just as a regular sit down inverted.


I guess it's time for Arrow to show em how it's "really" suppose to be done.

OMG... How could anyone possibly look at those photos of X and not drop their jaws in dismay, even in its uncompleted state? I am MESMERIZED. X will be THE coaster to end all coasters! If it works like it's supposed to, and people can actually stand the intensity of riding it, Arrow Dynamics is gonna take a HUGE chunk out of B&M's popularity! How could any designer possibly come up with something to top THAT? Please God, let them clone this one to filth all they want, and put one in every major city in the USA, I will NEVER utter a single word of complaint about it!

The Deja Vu trains are pretty nice up close. I saw them while walking up the line for Psyclone. I can see how the clearence could be a problem because i thought the same thing just looking at them. X also looks awsome! That first drop should be unlike anything else in the world! Can't wait to ride that beast!

So there are the "special" trains without the staggered seating that someone was so insistent about seeing a few days ago? ;)

Seriously though, I'm glad some progress is happening on one other than Georgia. I hope they open soon, but I don't have my hopes up high at all!

Peabody: you are right for not getting youre hoes up. As for the X pictures my jaw hurts from hitting the floor so often, that is the perfect coaster that Six Flags should clone...mass clonings for X in '02, I can already see it coming.:)

Looking at X, I think I just wet myself. I'm gonna have to save up major bucks and get myself out to SFMM to tackle this thing.

God please let SFKK get something this year. ANYTHING!!

I hope that it will still be a great ride since it is soo short and its a hyper. It is going to be a really short since hypers move so fast and its only 3000+ feet. What am i talking about. This thing looks amazing. Good thing i live 45minutes away.

Deja Vu does have 1 train of 8 rows and its 4 across seating with the back 2 seats staggered behind the front 2. How many times do we have to go over it? I also agree with coastergoose about Deja being rough. Afterall the invertigos are extremly rough and they have a ton of extra padding on the OTSR, and after watching SFOG's Deja test the side to side movement of the train is extremly noticable too.

There were some problems with the pullcars and the chassis of the train. But the problems are solved and the finan test can begin at the Deja Vu of SFMM. The Deja Vu of SFGam and SFOG will get it's finan test within 1 or 2 weeks. Futhermore the train will get 4 in row seats in V-shape style.
