Batman & Robin: The Chiller opens today!

Sunday, May 5, 2002 7:02 AM

I just called Six Flags Great Adventure and i got some exciting news. Chiller is open today! They couldn't be lying because i got some other people to call & ask too, and the operators also said Chiller will be open, both sides! Both sides had been testing and they are ready to open today.. Just wanted to make sure you know now.. and have fun riding them your next time to the park! i am probably going next week, 5.11 or 5.18, I am not sure. I have a school trip on 5.11 but I think im going to cancel it, I want to ride chiller ASAP!

I work at the parkl, and believe that if it did open today that only blue will be going bc they havent been testing red, and are making final adjustments before putting it back.

Well, this is total B/S. I was at SFGAdv today. They are still testing with water dummies. I spoke with Ron in maintenance. Chiller has passed one inspection but they still have to cycle the ride at least 300 times and reinspection before riders are allowed on. So far NO ONE has ridden it. Chiller MIGHT open next Saturday. Time to put these stupid rumors to rest.

It should be open on the 10th, assuming that it passed inspection today.

Contrary to what everyone believes here are some facts.
Chiller has been certified for awhile and has had riders, although no guests. It cycled throughout the weekend with water dummies in cars 1 and 5 and was making it through the tophat with tons of speed to spare.

The park is hoping for a saturday opening, with the employee ERT set for friday night. It could open thursday and friday, although I personally believe that it'll be saturday.

I could have sworn I saw an employee riding when I went, in car 2.

Also, this year there is a difference in the ride (or at least from what I saw). When batman operated last year, on the first launch into the tophat, the tophat was taken at a fast speed, and had "looplike" G's. When I saw it operating with the water test dummies, it would go through the tophat with the same amount of speed as on the return trip.

This, my friends, either means a)- The ride isn't operating at full power, yet, or b)- We have some more major floater air on our hands!
