Batman & Robin: The Chiller - SFGADv Deconstruction??

It could be Jumpin' Jack Flash, but I don't know. It was trailer-mounted, so that's a possibility. Stuntman's Free Fall bit the dust, so that's definitely not it.

So, exactly how many rides from that year when they added so many new ones still there? I know they lost a few.

I think Intamin Fan might be able to answer this question.

Off the top of my head, I can come up with:

--Evolution (moved to SFStl)
--Jumpin' Jack Flash
--Pendulum (moved to SFGAm)
--Rodeo Stampede (moved to SFoT)
--polyp ride
--Chance Double Inverter
--Chance Chaos
--spinning pirate boat ride

^^ go here: click on GA History Timeline and compare 1998's to 1999's ride to find the new rides for '99 then compare 1999's list to now. This website ROCKS!

One of the few RIDES I remember from my early visits to GAdv...the Swiss Bob... :)

Although I've ridden both sides with the barrel rolls and they were the best part, I'm just glad the ride will make its return. All this talk about Six Flags really pushing to get it open soon is enlightening, before it didn't seem like they gave a damn if the ride ever ran. I'm glad I had a send off with about 10 Batman rides a week before the incident last summer and I'm ready for it to reopen once again. Although I'm sure it never got seen, I'm glad I sent a letter to Gadv that mentioned the Chiller, maybe it had some osmosis effect and was good luck.... :)

I have to admit I'm very disapointed and excited at the same time. I'm really disapointed by the way that these hills turned out but I am excited to get to ride it this season. I can't help but think however that things are going to be the same this year with the ride as years past. I'll be there opening day but I don't expect Robin to be open anytime soon nor do I expect a Batman appearance before July. I have a feeling it will take me 3 yrs to ride both sides again just like it did when it had the zero G's.

Boo! Now Mr Freeze will be the top launched coaster in the six flags chain. I would think that putting brakes after the Cobra/tophat would mitigate the problem...and would be cheaper too. On a positive note..I'm glad they're at least keeping it.

Wouldnt Kingda Ka be the top launched coaster. *** Edited 3/28/2007 8:51:14 PM UTC by Audioslaved***

^ All a matter of opinion, but I have Batman: The Chiller on my top steel list, but not Kingda Ka.

I'm glad that they're keeping Chiller, but like someone said, why not just put a brake between the barrel rolls and the tophat/cobra roll tower? Seems that would have fixed the problem, as well as be cheaper and easier.

I actually like the fact that the zero g rolls were removed. The zero g rolls would toss me to the side of the car(on both batman and robin).

The best part of the coaster still remains going backwards through the inerted top hat of the batman side.

I think the element they added in place of the rolls actually looks like a lot of fun.

Ajrides that video said 2006 I am guessing that was a typo but the ride looks really good.

I rode Chiller today...will have a TR a bit later after dinner :)

I rode it today. It had about a 15 min wait maybe due to KK and El Toro being closed in the morn. Overall I wasn't impressed. The launch felt weaker than usual, the cobra roll was intense but it just isn't the same without those rolls. Going backwards you get quite a bit of airtime but the hill itself feels pretty superficial, kind of like a one trick pony. When the Batman side opens I'm sure it'll feel more superficial since the tophat causes for less of a ride than the cobra roll. *** Edited 4/11/2007 12:22:58 AM UTC by OP AWESOME***

Batman track is complete, I was at the park today. :)

I rode CHILLER finally last Friday. The core, the most important part of the ride is still there. It's the intense launch and the giant tower inversions that drive my love for the ride I realized. The rolls just added to the craziness in the cycle. I did fine without them.
