Silverwood's Deja Vu

Oh poor little Silverwood Theme Park - what have you done?

Today Silverwood Theme Park announced their plan to purchase the Deja Vu roller coaster from Six Flags Great America and have the ride open by July. This will be the park's largest and most expensive ride ever, with the instillation of the ride costing $3 million alone. (though if they are smart they probably let Six Flags pay them to get ride of the thing)

But really - if Silverwood can make the thing work regularly it'll be a stand out attraction for them. It's tall, it's fast, it's fairly unique - it's certainly a ride that has the potential to give the park a lot of press and attention.

Here's the article about the announcement.
