The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Screamscape:

(7/27/11) Another head-scratching rumor from the Six Flags chain has come back to me this week, claiming that Magic Mountain may be on the verge of losing Déjà Vu (and the coaster crown!) by sending it off to another Six Flags parks for 2012. While I would outright dismiss this as being crazy, this links up with another crazy rumor I’ve been hearing for the past month claiming that Six Flags New England may be getting a “Déjà Vu” coaster of their own. The coinsidence is a bit much, so get your last rides in on Déjà Vu while you still can just in case.

I really dis like this rumor its been posted on facebook too!

I hope not. I know Deja Vu is a polarizing coaster, but I like it...a lot. It's probably the most hair raising ride in the park, my first ride on it scared the crap out of me! But I hear there is going to be a whole re-theming of that area, so I do wonder if Deja will make the cut.

Why would they go through all this trouble and expense to "reclaim the coaster crown" only to just give it away a season later? Seems completely silly unless that is the spot they want to put the drop tower on...hmm

 

I do like that ride too.

If they really do wanna retheme the area, maybe they'll put a new coaster there that better fits the theme?

Why send Deja Vu, which is really unique where it is at SFMM to a park like SFNE which already has a regular boomerang?! One is enough IMO!

 

Yeah I agree. But if Deja Vu does come to SFNE, they should just go ahead and remove Flash Back and put it there instead. It's not like anyone would care.

Maybe there will be others on here to back me up, but it seems this Deja Vu rumor surfaces nearly every season about this time of the year, mainly whenever a new coaster begins getting discussed at Magic Mountain.

 

I don't believe it for a second.

Well, if they replace Deja Vu with another coaster, they still have the coaster count crown...

 

If they were going to remove any ride, I'd rather they remove Green Lantern!

Well.......they did send an SLC to La Ronde, which already has a Batman clone. And they WERE going to put Chang in at SFGAm, which still has (at least for the moment) Iron Wolf. Don't try to interject logic into anything that Six Flags does, might make your brain hurt.

So I rode GL yesterday and let me say that I highly underestimated this ride. Had 2 rides on it, balanced (4 riders) and un-balanced (3 riders). Let me just say OMFG the unbalanced ride made my eyes water. The park does do a good job trying to make sure it's balanced unfortunately

Rode twice and waited about 60minutes each time.

 

Robb you were correct, you will get completely different ride experiences depending on weight distribution.

This is the point SFNE Online has been trying to get across on Facebook for the past month and a half. I can independently confirm the rumor from one of my sources also.

Rumors, for now....just like the Log Jammer being removed. I hope Deja Vu doesn't go anywhere! It's a great ride and adds a balance in the variety of coasters at SFMM. If it were to be removed, they better replace it with a BIGGER boomerang coaster, ha! Oh, Green Lantern is an awesome ride - doesn't take much space, in fact makes good of the space it sits on next to Batman. Been on it twice already, and ready for more. The GP love it, their reactions are some of the best at the park, returning to the station upside down, lol!

I hope this rumor isn't true. I highly doubt they would remove a ride that is reliable(for the most part, compared to the others), popular, and lose the coaster crown. Plus i bet if they moved the darn thing all the things SFMM mechanics have done to keep the thing running more then the others would probably break and it would sit broken down most the time at SFNE. Unless they said the SFMM mechanics with it.

Look at Intamin's Spinner Coaster, now that would be a good fit. I hope that SF doesn't move Deja Vu, it would make zero sense for them to remove it. Would they change their marketing slogan to "once had the most coasters on earth" ? And I do remember after Silverwood bought the other GIB, that SFMM's was also rumored to be going. If anything, remove the go-karts as a location for the next coaster. Or at least, build over them. Wouldn't be too hard to design a track to drive around a few footers.
