I ran across this satillite photo of sfog flooded, and found what looks like pieces of a caoster in a field next to the park.
At first I thought it was deja vu, but it has todays date on it.
Anybody know what coaster this is?
From the colors, DeJa Vu. The SFGAm sold but the SFoG one hasn't yet.Last edited by otterkpr, Thursday, September 24, 2009 12:20 AM
Blue and Green...yup, definitely Vu.
Just from looking at the colors I would guess that is Deja Vu.
Well, now we know Vu is still on SFOG property.
I always thought it was the sfog vu that went to Idaho.
I know the pic isn't exactly a close up but it kinda looks like the track has been chopped up for scrap metal.
^^Nope, it was the SFGAm Vu that got bought.
It's not chopped up. You can see semi-trailers near by and they're about the same length. Besides, if it was chopped up for scrap, it would have been gone a long time ago.
Honestly, the ride ran "pretty well" the last season or two of its life. Sure, it was a capacity nightmare and a maintenace hog - but the park typically opened Vu later so they could have the greatest number of attractions open with the park, and the capacity....well, it would've been better had the ride never been put on FP (since it was implemented poorly for Vu).
Who knows, maybe another "smallish" park with good maintenance staff and no need for massive capacity could pick it up....maybe Beech Bend? ;)
Found it after I started a topic on "what happened to Deja Vu at SFOG?" Never realized about this topic when I did a search and looked at the title itself and ignored it, stupid me...
