Robin Chiller Ride Review!

Sunday, September 9, 2001 11:06 AM
Hehehe...I rode it last night at 9:15 pm!!!! I waited an hour for the very front row. I couldn't pass up the chance to do the very front for my first ride with the lap bars! The wait was only 1/2 hour, but the front row line was another 1/2 hour. I could care less...it was well worth every minute of the wait. Millennium Force still holds the top spot, but Phantom's Revenge gets kicked out of the #2 spot! Sorry Nitro, but you aren't the best in the park anymore!
Man...those seats were COMFORTABLE! I felt like I could fall asleep in them! Anyways, onto the ride:
The seat belts don't go across your waist. They click onto the sid of the lap bar...the same type of safety system B&M's use...the extra seatbelt incase the bar opens. Well, you get in...the entry is a very tight fit now...there are new side plates, making it a very thin area to get in. You sit down, and place your feet flat on the floor because that ankle bar is there. Pull the restraints down. Lock in the seat belts, and the attendant checks your bar and belt. They go down the train. operator announces "Robin Clear"...PUT THE HANDS UP! Brakes open up...skids lower..."Launch". WOW! OMG! Is there anything like being launched 0-70 mph out into the dark night without holding onto anything?! DANG! You HURL out of that launch strip with more speed than ever before. I guess that the removal of the weight from the OTS's make the car launch to 70 mph in less than 2.8 seconds now! You plow out and head directly up into the Cobra Roll. The G's are pressing you down into your seat and there are more headchoppers than ever before experienced! Fly up into the second flip on the cobra roll, more headchoppers, and fly by the On-Ride camera. The flash wasn't on...neither were the cameras. Good, I'm not blinded for the zero-g roll! Fly up, twist all the way around at breakneck speed, flying out of your seat, level out, and climb the 200 foot spike. The LIM's on the spike boost you a little more to get to the top, you stall...moment of silence form the train...and then you start up again backwards. Down into the zero-g roll...this time you are out of your seat even more, and you fly back down. Entering the cobra roll backwards is an awesome sight. From the front seat, you just see the earth peel away from you, and you become completly disoriented through the twists and turns of the roll. lying out of the cobra roll, leveling out, more G's pressing you down into the seat, you are done. Come into the station laughing and clapping. inally, chiller is a Top 2 coaster...the way it was meant to be.
Friends, I have never come off of a coaster with a bigger smile on my face! It is one intense mofo of a ride that needs to be experienced to truly be appreciated. Screw Nitro...get out here and ride Chiller! You've gotta do the front row, though, for your first ride. Unfortunately, I had to meet my sister at the Fountain, er, Stage because she wanted to do her first ride on NIGHTro. Sure...she's done Nitro, but she had yet to do NIGHTro. She loved it...but I still say Chiller is the better coaster from now on.
My NEW top 5:
Millennium Force
The Chiller
Phantom's Revenge
Nitro
Apollo's Chariot
You simply MUST get out to SFGAdv and ride this thing. Nothing can compare to it. Speed, intense G's, a Zero-G roll with a lap bar, height, and doing it in reverse...what more could you want?

I'm looking forward to trying robin out next weekend.  Hopefully, they will get rid of the OTSRs on the Batman side over the winter.

1. does your F key work?    2. LI>, BR> OL>, don't get it, why are there so many of them? What do they mean?

I think it's a problem with the new version I think, sometimes when you post or edit all of the html stuff will come up too.

Sorry about the whole HTML thing guys.  As you can see, I fixed it up.  It's strange, but all of the capital F's didn't appear...hmmm, I wonder why?  Who knows.  Anyways, I also fixed the little "No more paragraph's" problem, so it is much easier to read.
Anyways...yes, it is finally smooth as silk, and is an entirely different ride experience.  You must ride it to beleive how excellent it is.

WE'RE SORRY NITRO, BUT TURN OF THE FRIGGIN CAPS LOCK!!!!  There...now that I got that out of me:

What other pictures do you need?  there are already pics of the trains with lap bars all over the net.  What's so special about a video, too?  It looks the same way it always has...it launches, goes through a cobra roll, through the in line twist, up the spike and then does it in reverse.  What's so special about needing a video?  Just wait until the 15th (While I will be riding Robin non-stop with ERT for CCVI, hehehe) and ride it then.  Maybe I'll see you...hehehe.  I'll give you a wave while riding the front row again with no wait!  LOL.
