Six Flags Magic Mountain offers after-hours rides on Déjà Vu ahead of closure

Déjà Vu rollercoaster

Six Flags Magic Mountain is offering fans one last chance to ride the Déjà Vu rollercoaster before it is relocated to Six Flags New England.

Fans of the Six Flags Magic Mountain Facebook page can call in at the park's Guest Relations office to receive a special pass on any day between September 18 and October 16, 2011. The passes will enable them to ride Déjà Vu after hours, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

In late October, Déjà Vu will be closed and work will begin to move it to Six Flags New England, where it will become Goliath. The removal of the Vekoma Inverted Boomerang means that Magic Mountain will once again share the title of "rollercoaster capital of the world" with Cedar Point, with both parks having 17 coasters in their line-up.

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.

This ride is extremely fun for me and it is a big shame for six flags to be removing it from the park. If you can spend money to move it to another park so it can be modified, why not save money and modify it where it stands?
