Mr. Freeze Open!

When I went to Six Flags St. Louis on friday night Oct. 6 Mr. Freeze was open. I did not ride because it looked like it was only single train operation. Just wanted to pass the info along.
Was there people on it? Or were they just testing it?

It is open with only one train operating, other won't be fixed until next year (lines could be long for the rest of the month with Fright Fest happening, signs are out to warn people about the wait).

worn? I would imagine that people will be worn out from standing in that long line.

*I think you meant warn* ;)

The one at SFoT is set to stay closed for the rest of the season. It's good to hear that at least one of them has been partially fixed, but that line is going to get extremely long.

18 wheels, and they all missed
That's good to know. I'm impressed. I don't even fault them for not having the other train ready for next year, that's a lot of work. Let's hope Chiller gets the same and will be open next year.

Word on the street is that Chiller is history.
Man would that be a shame. Chiller is a very unique ride...especially without those blasted OTSRs!

It's also a ride that was botched from the beginning, had a troublesome history, and was saddled with high maintenance costs.

Seriously, in 3 years of living 20 minutes from that park, I never saw it run both sides at the same time and I only saw Batman run about 4 times.

I'll be really sad if it gets scrapped (Batman side was by far my favorite shuttle), but I can see how it would've gotten pricey.

Is Chiller that much different than the Mr. Freeze rides? Why does it have so many problems while Freeze seems to be fairly reliable?
^Correction -- Mr. Freeze at SFStL is the only reliable one.

The Freeze at OT has been pretty reliable, save this recent incident, as far as I know (living 20 minutes from the park).

I thought a few years ago it was down most of the season as well.

It was, due to foundation/footer cracks IIRC.
That's what I thought. See I knew I wasn't going crazy. :) I just remember the last time I was at SFOT it was down and it had been down for awhile.

Well, I've only been here about a year, so that accounts for the discrepancy.

I've visited SFoT three times over the past three five years, Freeze was running fine all three times. I've also been to Las Vegas twice during that same period and Speed was fine both times... Guess I'm just lucky.

Be a damn shame to see Chiller go - but if the maintainace costs are really that high, better to replace it with something that will draw in and actually thrill the guests. Gotta say though, it's certainly one of the most VISUALLY striking coasters what with all the overbuilt superstructure. I'm just sorry I might never get to see it in person.

SFOT's is pretty reliable. More and more each year. I was the Crew Lead there last season and I only remember 1 or 2 days that we were closed all day. *shrug*

The second train should be operating soon...possibly as soon as this weekend, in fact.
