Than, why don't they split this coaster up, and send part it to another park? How about the same thing with the Magic Mountain's Superman? Have half of it at Magic Mountain, and the other half at a place that doesn't have a LIM coaster. The same would be for this coaster.
As far as its removal....keep it SBNO!! That's created a nice little place in Movietown to get away from the masses.
At this point the ride is a waste of money. They could be making better use of their money then trying to fix the chiller.
Mark Kane states though that they are trying to fix ALL the problems. IF thats true then there is a chance that it could be compeltely working next year.
Screamscape states that it could be scrapped next year.
So who knows. *** Edited 9/4/2007 6:28:47 PM UTC by majortom1981***
Count me in as being surprised if it doesn't have at least another go with the new track next season.
Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger
It was open during our visit this year. It broke down for 10-15 minutes while they had to bring the train back to its "home position". But, other than that, it seemed to be working - at least as well as any of the other rides in the park that day were. :)
No other LIM-launched coaster has had more than a fraction of the problems Chilla has had. Not sure why, exactly, but much like my feelings about Ka, I tend to think of those perpetual, persistent, critical LIM problems as being more *symptoms* than causes. There's an underlying reason why those LIMs kept (keep?) burning out. Much like there's a reason that Ka shuffles on down the launch track....
Mark doesn't mess around when it comes to either having the ride operating every single day or simply removing it. Chiller had its chance earlier this season and yet another flaw was discovered. So will they fix that new problem yet again or simply scrap it. I think we'll all be soon finding out...

Oh well, I'll console myself with El Toro. :)
Also Vincent if you are in the farmingdale area of long island visit adventureland. Its a very small park but has some great flats like a good log flume, huss frisbee and huss pirate ship ,and a hurricane coaster. Worth a couple of hours at least. *** Edited 9/5/2007 8:33:59 PM UTC by majortom1981***
