Long live the Big Bad Wolf
Seems like a weird place to start a removal and makes sense as both a fix or a track replacement as that seems to be the main problem area.
Either way seems a better choice than leaving it sit there to rust like it has in some capacity so many of the previous seasons.
The difference? For awhile there, GAdv had the most exciting *moment* in steel coasterdom. Once those OTSR's came off, hell broke loose in those heartlines...and it was gooooood. Scary? Most DEFINITELY!
Can't even imagine what this is going to mean....how would they "tweak" the heartlines to make them negotiable by the trains? Wondering if it just wasn't the best place to begin complete deconstruction....kinda afraid that might prove to be the case... :-/
If they remove the heartline, does it count as another credit? 2? :) ;)
Those rolls can get quite rough on that coasster (yes I have ridden it)
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
Rumor (local legend) has it that it caused many a power problem when they did, so they went to alternating sides. Not saying it's true just what has been floating around about why they don't launch both sides at the same time.
It's a really fun ride, and I always like hearing comments like "That looks like the track just ends. Are they finished building it?" or "why don't they put a second train on to make the line go faster" (spoken seriously)
Rather than spending more money on rides other than the two spinners & the three expansions they want to spend the rest on paintjobs or retracking instead....it seems like SF under Shapiro is really not gonna be any different than SF was under Burke's control IMO.
But that is just a rumour.
Anyway. A lot of people are interested in this coaster. I am glad they are trying to save it.
I would rather this one get saved then a new one get built wich we dont need.
If they really do take out the heartlines, I'm sure not waiting in the crazy lines for an unimpressive ride at that point. The heartlines are what made Chiller an amazing ride. Other than that, the launch is relatively weak (especially compared to other in-park launches), the height is nothing special, the inversion is done on another coaster in the park (assuming they'll still only run Robin) ... why keep it standing? There's a lot more you can do with that land and the operating budget that I'm sure is out of control.
Impulse-ive said:I think you're close majortom, I think it's that Batman's upper LIMs were raided to keep Robin running. Am I completely off on that one?
That's the same song I heard...the lyrics, anyway.... ;)
Hopefully, they'll be replacing the heartlines with ones that WON'T valley the train....I have to hope! :)
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
