Déjà Vu was a steel inverted shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Georgia in the United States. It is currently in storage at Mirabilandia in Brazil.

History

Déjà Vu was planned to open at Six Flags Over Georgia alongside Acrophobia in spring 2001, however this was postponed due to technical difficulties.[1] It opened on September 1, 2001.[2] It was the second of three Déjà Vu roller coasters opened at Six Flags parks in 2001, with identical roller coasters also opened at Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Great America. The roller coaster closed in 2007 and was subsequently dismantled.

The ride has been in storage at Mirabilandia since 2009. Mirabilandia planned to open it under the name of Sky Mountain at their new installations that are being built and are planned to be ready by 2021, but in november 2018 the park started negotiating the coaster with Hopi Hari, another brazilian park located in the city of Vinhedo. The negotiations between Mirabilandia and Hopi Hari are still ongoing, so it is uncertain if the ride will operate in Mirabilandia or if it will be sold to Hopi Hari.

Design

Elements

Layout

The ride has two vertical towers. The train is initially lifted backwards up the first tower by a catch car lift. When released, it passes through the station and into the cobra roll element. This is immediately followed by the vertical loop, which leads into the second vertical catch car lift. The train is subsequently released, and it completes the course again in reverse before returning to the station.

Trains

Single train with 8 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train.
