Okay . . . what was the longest wait I had to endure to ride a ride I wanted to ride so badly?
Answer - I had to wait nine years to finally ride Deja Vu!
Why did it take so long for me to be able to ride this extreme inverted boomerang? It was because of the two Six Flags parks that did have the Deja Vu, but on the day I visited the ride wasn't running. Six Flags Great America in 2001 and Six Flags over Georgia in 2003 and 2004. It wasn't until I visited Six Flags Magic Mountain that I was finally able to ride Deja Vu ( And I did it twice in a row, both in the front seat
)! In 2012, Deja Vu was moved to Six Flags New England and renamed Goliath, and I rode that one too.
Stop the Presses!!! I just remembered another coaster from Six Flags New England in which I had to wait even longer before riding: I forgot about Bizzaro. During my visit in 2001, that coaster ( known back then as Superman
) wasn't running due to maintainence issues. This year, 2012 - 11 years later, I finally rode that coaster!
Besides those two coasters, I cannot think of anymore rides in which I had to wait for a very long time before getting the chance to ride it. "Hey, what about me? Don't you wait too long before you decide to ride me!"
