The way that SFMM has to look at it is that it's a ride that is typically only open a few months a year, it's very low capacity and the space where Deja Vu is, coupled with the land they cleared for Mr. Six last year is a lot of room.

Hopefully SFNE will take care of it like SFMM did.

It's going to be really sad if it goes. I personally think that it's the second most intense ride in the park, right behind X2, and I remember at WCB they were talking about how well SFMM's maintenance crew has done with it, and that they are proud to still have it. I really hope this rumor is false, but I guess we will find out soon.

I really wish they could just take the one from SFOG that was sent to Mirabilandia and has been sitting there for quite a while. Here's more info about it from screamscape: http://www.screamscape.com/html/mirabilandia.htm

So SFMM makes such a big deal about having the most coasters anywhere, and then they go right back into a tie for first just a few months later? Just like when they still counted Flashback as one of their coasters even though it was SBNO for years. :lmao: :lmao:

Six Flags is so bad you can't help but love it. The William Hung of theme park chains.

So did everyone see this?

Deja Vu looks like it's LEAVING! And heading for Six Flags New England
AGAWAM – Six Flags New England is working to replace one of its original rides with a new attraction, a roller coaster to be called the "Giant Inverted Boomerang."

“We are extremely excited about what we are going to do,” Jennifer Mance, director of sales and marketing for the local attraction, said Monday.

As for the cost of the new project, Mance said more information, though not necessarily the cost, will be released on Sept. 1.

Site plans for the ride, which will replace the water attraction Ship Wreck Falls, will be taken up by the Planning Board when it meets Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Agawam Public Library. Six Flags must get the Planning Board to approve its site plans for the project to move forward. The board is expected to put the plans to a vote Thursday, according to Planning and Community Development Director Deborah S. Dachos.

The new ride will be about 267.6 feet at its highest and will feature a steel roller coaster running on tracks in the shape of an “X,” according to information on file in the Planning Department.

Plans call for dismantling the water attraction Ship Wreck Falls and installing the new ride over its footprint. A new outdoor eating area is also planned for the neighborhood of the existing food court, according to the site plan review application filed with the city.

Ship Wreck Falls was one of the original rides at the amusement park.


“However, the ride has served well and is in need of replacement,” amusement park representatives wrote in the site plan review application. The application states that none of the work is near a resource area for a wetland. If it were, that would mean the project would probably need approval from the Conservation Commission.

Mayor Richard A. Cohen Monday greeted the advent of a new ride at the park with enthusiasm.

“New rides at the park attract people to that venue,” Cohen said. “I’m glad Six Flags is working with the town to create a new attraction for the park as they are a regional economic boost to the economy in the Pioneer Valley.”

A regional attraction at 1623 Main St., Six Flags currently offers amusement park-goers 10 rides. The tenth ride, Gotham City Gauntlet Escape from Arkham Asylum, was opened to the public in April.

Six Flags Entertainment Corp. is the world’s largest regional theme park company. It has 19 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada. Six Flags’ flagship park, Six Flags Over Texas, just marked its 50th anniversary.


I really hope it's not actually called the "Giant Inverted Boomerang." That would be an all time low for Six Flags.

As much as I actually do enjoy De javu, for as little as it runs I'll be happy to see it replaced with something that's hopefully more reliable.

^Haha. LOL at counting SBNO coasters. Like how Vertigorama is "one of the longest coasters in the world" but it never opened and has been decaying for decades.

^It would be hard to replace it with something that was less reliable! ;) Remember the old rumors for that spot were a B&M Dive Machine.

I still don't understand why Magic Mountain would go out of their way to add "3" new coasters and take back the coaster crown, just to let one of their coasters leave the same year.

I'm hoping Magic Mountain gets something big next year to fill the empty spot. As Elissa said, A Dive Machine would be perfect!
