THE OVERVIEW

The next generation super boomerang roller coaster - Deja Vu is be the world's tallest and fastest of its kind. Deja Vu combines state-of-the-art thrill ride technology with a brand new twist; riders fly forwards and backwards over twisting, looping inverted steel track. Strapped in sleek ski lift-style chairs suspended from the track above, Deja Vu sends riders flying out of the station like Batman: The Ride only this time it's over the outside of a vertical loop and a giant 110-foot high boomerang double inversion with nothing but the sky above you're dangling feet. One time forward, one time backward...it's Deja Vu.
