I rode Chiller Friday the 5th, but on Friday the 12th while walking to B:TR I saw Chiller (Robin) running but decided to ride Nitro right after B:TR. Well, after Nitro, the gate was up at Chiller's entrance saying that it was "temporarily closed" - only "temporarily" seems to have been the whole night. I love Robin now that it has lapbars and was REALLY looking forward to a ride or two. Sorry I have no info for you. I'm curious about this also.

I go every weekend and I have rode Robin 6 times with the lap bars and every time was a problem and the ride was shut down for about 15 mins. I called management and they said its closed for the seson to fix the laps and will open again in April along with the Batman side.

I went on the 8th, sign out front said that "The Chiller" was closed...I expected B:TC to be closed for the obvious "enhancement", but was surprised R:TC was closed too. After my Nitro rides (3 of 'em), the "new" Robin and Blackbeard are the coasters I've yet to ride at SFGAdv...from what I've heard, the difference is AMAZING!

The difference is amazing theres not a bump on Robin. I was SHOCKED when I rode it with lap bars at how smooth it was.

Well, I went last Friday, and the ride ops said that something inside the station broke, so it can't be run. Whether that means an LIM, Brake Fin, something on the train, I don't know. all I know is that it probably won't be open for the rest fo the year. At least I was able to get 32 rides in on it before this happened, hehehe.

I was there last friday when it broke...it was testing early in the morning, but stayed closed all day. They said that when the coaster was coming back into the station, it was stopping a foot short of the sensors. They then would have to have two ride ops push it back to trigger the sensor and then reset the safety computer. I was pissed b/c I came all the way from Florida! Oh well...gives me another reason to go back!

It will be up and running next season with the Batman side and the new laps for that side so if you go next year you will get 2 very improved rides instead of one.

When I was there on Mon Oct. 8th and I was 2 trains away from riding it (for the first time with lap bars) and it got stuck in the "tube". The people shot out and never came back!!! I guess they got them out at some time but, I only waited like 10 minutes and then we decided to move on.
The ride ops were not giving us any info. as to the problem.
Later on it the day we noticed that they ran it empty one time (that we saw) but, the ride never reopened that day. BUMMER!!!

do you think it will remain closed for the season?

I just started to come across these boards (U gotta be a newbie sometime), and I just wanted to put something here for anyone with interest. Chiller WILL be closed for the rest of the season, I work at the ride most of the time...Batman has been gone to get its lapbars, Robin has had little nagging problems since it came back like it not stopping in correct position plus more than just "minor" technical difficulties with a LIM motor at the top of the boost area that we came across this past Friday.
