What type of lift will Deja vu have?

Did SF reveal that information? It doesn't sound like a chain lift, and I don't think they could use it for that type of ride.
It sound more like an elevator lift system (Ex:MF). I could be wrong, does anybody know?

I think a cable pulls up the train up the towers. MF has a elevator lift system, which doesn't have a cable to it.

It is a elevator lift system. The coolest part is it is totally silent.

This is how the system works-It's also the main source of problems that the GIBs are experiencing. There are two lift sleds, one for each tower. There is a cable connected to these sleds, hence the giant flywheels at the tops of the towers. The train connects with each lift sled to climb the tower. To begin the ride, the sled hooks to the train and pulls it up backwards via the cable. At the top, the train is dropped, and the train plummets. At the base of the exit from the vertical loop, the train connects with the second lift sled. After connecting, the sled attached to a second cable raises the train up the second spike. At the top, it is released, after one more pass thru the station, the train connects with the first lift sled to be lowered back down.

Hope this helps!

The elevator lift uses cables! What do you think that those three spools at the base of the lift have running through them? The sled that the train rides up on is carride to the top by, guess what, CABLES! How are elevators lifted...do you think that they float? Elevators use cables! So I guess that if an elevator uses cables, then an elevator lift system would ue cables, right? And Deja Vu uses the same lift as MF. The sled carries the train and cables carry the sled.

The lift cables arent the problems anymore, its the wheels they overheat or somethin. I think they fixed at SFoG's Deja'Vu. Soon it'll open. I think the engineers that are are working on SFoG's Deja'Vu will go to the other 2 parks and fix their Deja'Vus.
