Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Nooooooooooooooooo! As long as the lines are for Deja Vu, I think it's probably one of my favorites. Its just the pure insanity of it all that makes it in my top But I haven't been anywhere outside of Florida and So-Cal so my count doesn't have to much variety haha I just hope they put something better in at least. It would be a bummer if they replace Deja Vu with a family coaster

^^^ Do you have a pick-up truck?

 

I don't think SFMM would have much trouble fillling in that space. With a few exceptions, they have all original-design coasters. If they have something creative for the intended space, awesome! Rather than look at this as a loss, look at this as new possibilities. I'd love an excuse to go back to Six Flags M&M.

How do we know for sure it's SFMM's DejaVu and not new? There's almost a 76 foot height difference as well.

 

I've tried reading back through previous DejaVu topics but still can't find where SFMM said it's closing. I'm not saying it's not true, just curious of sources.

Deja Vu is the best Vekoma I think anyone has had the pleasure of riding on, and I like Vekoma's! When it was announced SFMM was getting La Vibora from SFOT, I was thinking of all the ground SFMM had previously cleared next to Deja Vu originally to make room for Mr. Six Dance coaster and how Tim had talked about 'evening out that back section of the park.' Of course, the now defunct picnic ground next to Bugs Bunny world would be a great spot to put it as well and as popular as it is with families in Texas, would be an excellent spot. I really, really hope they don't remove Deja as it is one of my favorite rides in the park. When I last visited the park on the 8th, the employees and I discussed its possible removal and they were devastated calling the ride their 'baby' also citing the lengthy rehab it had just undergone. I also visit Silverwood up in Idaho frequently where Aftershock, their version, always runs amazingly well. With the exceptions of the problems the one in GA had, I don't see how any park manager could want to part with this ride.

Well, we are back in the 80's again where they just shift coaster around and around without really making something new. SFMM is lucky in the sense that most of our coasters cannot be moved, in fact I think Deja Vu and Scream are th eonly ones what even have the possibility of moving to another park. I am so sad to see Deja Vu go but it could be worse because the other Six FLags parks will benefit even less because they get recycled rides without having an awsome collection already unless they are Gread Adventure, Great America, or Over Georgia. I just hope for two things if Deja Vu leaves us. The first, that whatever it is is as good or better than Deja Vu thrill wise and that it is permenant. I dont want some little rinky dink ride put on Deja Vu's footprint....I want a megacoaster that occupied Cycloon 500, the Junkyard, AND Deja Vu's foorprint.

 

All I can say is that I am, once again, disappointed.

I don't think SFMM is going to say anything until they have to, and I guess they have to Sept. 1st when SFNE announce that they are officially installing Vu for 2012. They height difference means nothing the Media get stats wrong all the time when it comes to rides/coasters. Why would SFI spend the money with Vekoma on a new Model Deja Vu thats even bigger then the first 3 they bought and would probably have even bigger issues being 267 feet tall .

 

I know this is a dream...but I love it if SFMM could squeeze a record breaking giga in there, and then take the next 5 to 10 years even, just adding flats, maybe family coaster bigger then RRE and just fixing up the place making it more beautiful and rounding out the park. Give HH some love in that time also.

So this supposedly is going to be put in another park that already has a boomerang type ride?

 

Hmm, there's giant FAIL!

 

I wouldn't be surprised, there's La Ronde with their 2 Inverted roller coasters, along with Six Flags Great America having two wild mice. But the sad thing is, the last 2 roller coasters Great America added were wild mice, so at least New England is getting a major addition since what... Pandemonium?

 

Six Flags New England's just recently had a new addition and it is... a Wild Mouse. I can see La Ronde having two inverts, but Flashback and Deja vu have the same layout... it just seems pretty strange to me and I think some of the gp will notice because the two rides wil be so close togather

What about Goliath, Apocalypse, RRE, Canyon Blaster, Riddlers, Viper and Batman...they could all be moved...and the others could also be moved as well, with some adjustments.

I completely agree that Deja Vu and Expedition Everest are two of the best Vekomas. I'm upset to see Deja go, especially since it has been running so good lately! I just hope what replaces it is good, like a gyro drop, giga, or dive machine. I'm anticipating the parks October announcement!

Remember, this is also the company that put a used SLC in a park that already had a Batman. And oddly enough...both coasters has long lines when we were recently there.

 

Wait... which park is that? I have seriously somehow missed this.

But SLC's and Batman clones give two completely different rides. SLC's are rough and shaky, but fun to ride (IMO), and Batman clones are some of the smoothest rides on the planet, they are intense and fast paced. I don't that having two inverted rides is a big deal. Cedar Point has Raptor and Wicked Twister.

This made my day. I don't know what it was but I had one REALLY rough ride on it a few years back... it's been running better recently, but I still don't like it. The only thing I like is the vertical drop... and X isn't too far away and is a much better coaster with a much better vertical drop!

^^^But take note, boomerangs and GIB give different experiences too. Deja Vu, you're below the track, 90 degrees, on a similar design that is taller, faster, longer, and smoother. It's like a boomerang on steroids. I'd travel miles just to ride a GIB. I would travel across the street for a boomerang.

Oh, c'mon. Are you REALLY trying to convince me that a Batman clone and an SLC are as different as Raptor and Wicked Twister? Try telling that to someone who HASN'T been on 1,500 roller coasters....

Entering a new crazy era for SF again. Along the lines of coasters that appear twice in the same park, take SFNE for example. Pandemonium and Gotham.., was the park really dying for a second wild mouse style coaster? Really weird that the height is so different though isn't it? I can understand being a couple of feet off, but 70? Also nice to see SF going for worst coaster name ever with Giant Inverted Boomerang.

Why do people keep saying this. Pandemonium and GCG are two totally different ride experiences. Pandemonium is barely even a wild mouse. It has what, two hairpins and then it's completely different from a standard wild mouse. And Giant Inverted Boomerang is obviously not the name of it, it's just what they said when they needed when they got permission to build it. When SFGAM applied for Chang, they said NOTHING about what the rides name or theme would be. All those details will come when its announced by Six Flags.
