Erm, you sure?

Ain't you getting that confused with the problematic Deja Vu triplets.[/quote]

Whats up with the Deja Ve's then?[/quote]

They have more downtime than Air did in it's first week!!!

But to answer your question, i haven't a clue. They are highly unreliable, i would guess it's the complex lifting mechanism they use, but what do i know?!

Eh

Basically the Vekoma Giant Inverted Boomerang (Deja Vu) had not been tested propelly and Six Flags were desperate to install them as soon as possible for 3 parks. Due to them not being tested they had various serious mechanical issues thus Six Flags sued Vekoma I believe.

Six Flags Over Georgia's model I believe still to this day barely runs.

Thats about it.

Americans will sue for anything!

How come Six-Flags are in so much debt anyway?


Because they dont know how to manage there parks...[/quote]

Yay my 100th Post :W

:lol: Don't we all know that is true :D

Just a little added information, the Six Flag's Company is 2 Billion in Debt (a hell of a debt) :shock: :W
