Déjà Vu image

The Déjà Vu rollercoaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain is set to be closed until spring 2011, according to a sign at the park.

Screamscape reports that the sign states that "this attraction is closed for the season and will re-open in the spring". The Vekoma Boomerang coaster is the only one of four originally installed at Six Flags theme parks that is still in place.

Déjà Vu has had a troubled history, with Vekoma's attempt to modify its popular Boomerang design resulting in serious reliability issues. Versions were installed at both Six Great America and Six Flags Over Georgia in 2001, but were subsequently removed in 2007. The version from Six Flags Great America has since reopened as Aftershock at Idaho's Silverwood theme park, after undergoing modifications designed to reduce downtime.

In common with other Vekoma Boomerang coasters, Déjà Vu sees being riders pulled backwards up a lift hill, plunging through several inversions following the first drop, and then repeating the course in reverse. However, it is larger than previous Boomerang designs and features a staggered seating arrangement on its trains.
