Does anybody know if X is hitting its 1600 pph capacity. How about Deja Vu?

LMAO that is a good one..

X I would venture to say, from my visit, MIGHT have hit 600pph one or two hrs...average is most definitely less.

Deja Scrap Heap I have NEVER heard of getting more than 400 (absolute best hour ever, most likely) on any of the three...that is if it can actually operate for a full hour continuously...which is very rare.

Whose decision was it to buy DV's anyway? I bet they got a swift kick in the nuts.

So Joe...

Does the 600 pph for X include the time saved by the attendants jumping on the seats to make them recline "faster?" Oh, and if you have a flashlight, then I'm here for the time machine.

X has had some days where the line has moved very fast. It all depends on the ride ops and the speed of the people moving on and off the ride. I would not be surprised if X has topped 1100 pph, much greater than Deja Vu will ever achieve. On a good day, Deja Vu probably reaches 800 pph, however, loading takes forever, the ride ops are slow, and there is only one train, so 800 might be an exageration.

800, huh? Does that mean each cycle counts twice since it's a boomerang?

I was at sfmm last week and a new train would dispatch about every three minutes and twenty seconds. That's about 18 cycles per hour, and with approx 26 people per cycle (empty seats), we arrive at a amazing 468 pph.

That's the most accurate conclusion I've heard in a long time, Coasterman. Can we at least round up, though. 500pph sounds so much better.

Is that figure for X or DV? I'd have a hard (read: impossible) time believing DV came anywhere close to that. X, I could see with two trains getting that number.

That figure is most definately for X. Deja Vu trains dispatch one every 6min or so. Figure capacity is about 250 pph on DV. Last time I was there, when DV was open, we only had to wait for three trains, but it took 20 min.

Ya that calculation is for X. If only Deja Vu could achieve that! I have a hard believing that X will ever top 1000 pph, even with attentive and quick operaters, the whole gates go up seats tilt ect. process takes way too long.
