Silverwood Opens Relocated Deja Vu Roller Coaster
Six Flags Great America’s roller coaster named Deja Vu has been sold to Silverwood Theme Park in Athol, Idaho. Silverwood is also home to the Mitch Hawker Coaster Poll top rated wooden coaster Tremors.
Deja Vus are inverted shuttle roller coasters made by Vekoma. They feature 90-degree vertical lifts and large loops. I enjoyed the one I rode at Six Flags Over Georgia. The vertical lifts give the feeling of a free fall and the over-sized loops are noticeably larger than normal. Aside from the frequent downtime issues that plagued these coasters, guests at Silverwood should enjoy their new addition. So when it’s actually running, this a pretty fun coaster.
Silverwood’s holding a contest to give the coaster a new name. Click here to submit a name. Also, check out this video of Silverwood’s commercial for their new unnamed attraction:
