Wooden platform on Deja-Vu(SFGAm)

Friday, May 17, 2002 4:23 PM

Hows it going guys. I decided to go to SFGAm for a few hours today. I wanted to get a closer look at DV and see what Coasterdude316 was talking about. He mentioned something about a wooden structure being built by the ride.

It turns out its a wooden platform constructed right above the station. I am assuming it was built for easy access to the train in case it valleys again.

I find it rather pathetic that the park has to go through adding all of these extras to avoid further problems in the future. First the catwalk by the cobra roll and now this. At least the catwalk blends with the ride. This wooden platform sticks out like a sore thumb.

On another note, the temps were in the lower 40's but they were testing DV anyway. It never opened but everyone sat there and watched the train go through the circuit countless amount of times. It seemed to run pretty good(even in the cold temps) and here is hoping it will be open this weekend.

That is all. :)

I would agree that its sad. Even though the ride has no theming in the least, the wooden platform would defintely stick out like a sore thumb!!!

I found it quite comical, at least 200 people gathered at the entrance watching it and waiting for it to open.

But yeah, it does stick out like a sore thumb. I hope they at least paint it blue, and not leave it wood color. Instead of building that, why not reprogram the computer to use the brakes when the lift doesn't lift the train heigh enough? I guess that would be too logical.
