Is Mr Freeze still open

Monday, October 8, 2001 12:58 PM
I heard that one of the Mr Freeze coasters was shut down and it has been sent to get lap bars. How true is this.

As of last Sunday, Mr. Freeze at SFoT was still open, although they were only running one side that day.

I believe I've heard that Mr. Freeze will close for the season after October so the park can get a jump on winter rehab.

Lap bars of Mr. Freeze was rumored on Screamscape... It seems plausible since the same conversion was performed successfully on Flight of Fear and the Chiller (both very similar to Mr. Freeze)

However, I’ve seen that the GP "doesn’t feel safe" on the Chiller with only lap bars (some people getting out of line when they see the lack of OTSRs) Combine that with all the extra stuff (seatbelts) they are putting ON the Déjà Vu’s, and I’ll be surprised to see Mr. Freeze with lap bars next year (but I sure hope I’m wrong…)

What? Who doesn't feel safe without lap bars? Flight of Fear has been busy all season long, and I've waited two hours for it! The folks in Southern Ohio obviously don't care, in fact, they embrace it!

I was simply referring to some TR’s and whatnot that I’ve seen floating around. Like I said, I hope I’m wrong – there is so much padding on Mr. Freeze’s OTSRs that you can barely get your head in and the headbanging is STILL uncomfortable… lap bars would make it a much better ride.

Are the long lines new to FOF with lap bars? Mr. Freeze with the OTSRs still seems to draw a long line (but that is in part due to only running one side…)

Robin still has a long line and people love it with lap bars. All I hear is positive comments about the ride from the GP.

I went to Kings Island in early summer on a Sunday (special park opening on June 3) and the line for FOF was about an hour wait.  I too was skeptical when I saw the lap bars but they work just fine.

I can only imply that they are, as the "old" ride never had those kinds of lines the year before. In fact, I heard one of the PR folks at the Tomb Raider announcement mention that perhaps they should've more aggressively plugged the ride in marketing this year, because just by word of mouth it has had a good year.

Yes it is still open, if EagelGuy said the one at SFstl is open, and the one at SFot is open because I rode it last weekend 2 times, but they are nly running one train, they have been doing it all summer pretty much. I hate that I wish they would run both of them.

You can only run one train on a launched, non-continous circut coaster like MR.Freeze. You can't run 2.

Mr Freeze has a different type of loading that Premier designed to allow more then 1 train operation.

I know that, I meant that only one was operating, you know? it means the other train is closed .

Mr. Freeze has a dual station.  When a train is loaded and ready, the section of track the train is on (which is basically the laoding platform) slides away from the air gates to the launch track.  Both sides alternate to pretty much double capacity.  A very clever idea in my opinion.  But the mr freeze at sfstl has been running only one side most of the summer due to the fact they dont have enough employees to run the second side.  This might be the case for the sfot mr freeze as well.

both mr. freezes getting lap bars is a good possibility.

As of Saturday at SFStL, Mr. Freeze was still open, although, they were only running one side. Unfortunately, as I was exiting the ride, I didn't catch a glimpse of the other train.

So did the other train get shipped away.
