  1. does anyone know what has been going on with the ride so far? There havent been any posts in a while and im wondering what has been done
  2. Does anyone know whether the park is going to use the inverted rolls or the inline twists? Just wondering
  3. so is it confirmed that the chiller was actually sold? who says six flags is not moving the parts of the ride to another storage area? if it has not been confirmed yet if the ride was sold or not, who knows really where it is or where it is going...?
  4. If it was up to me I wouldn't name the rides after past coasters, but I would make a list of the rides, let people vote for their favorite one, and build that one brand new but i don't think this is very practical... with your ideas of adding new rides into every part of the park, you are thinking specifically about flat rides, right? there doesn't seem to be enough space in the areas you have in mind for adding a new attraction except for the chiller's spot. If they wanted to refill that spot again with the chiller, I'm all for it
  5. As most people know, the park will be coming up shortly on a 40th anniversary in 2014 (1974-2014). What do you think is going to happen in the park when this anniversary comes up? I like how the park is going for the nostalgic feeling and is going back to an older feel of things. On the new scrambler, Deja Vu, there is the old park logo on the front of the cars (http://www.greatadve...0301%20copy.jpg). Thus, I would not be surprised if the park went for something big with the nostalgic sense to it for the 40th anniversary, or even 50th anniversary, such as the reopening of old country, or some
  6. Does anyone know whether Six Flags sold the parts for the ride, or if they sold the rights to the ride as well? If the ride goes really well with the modified supports and new technology and refurbishments, does anyone think that there may be a future for another shot at a LIM launch coaster? The park has been turning for the best in my opinion and they seem to be going for a nostalgic feeling. Plus, with a big anniversary coming up for the park, what could be coming in the future?
  7. i know the ride is going to brazil but is it confirmed to be this place? i really hope not...
  8. It's gotta go to Nitro. It has been here since 2001, and it is in great shape, it gets a lot of riders, and it is a great ride in general. Almost every coaster fan who I know always includes Nitro in their top 3 or 4 rides, and that is completely understandable. I like the other rides just as much, but I think Nitro has a little edge over all the other rides.
  9. Im sure most people know this, but there is also a new owner of the park. It seemed like Shapiro would take out a ride before doing anything else, and it seems like that was his favorite thing to do as well--take out rides. However, it seems as if the new owners, Weber and Anderson, would rather bring in a new and improved ride to the park. Yes, they did remove the Scream Machine which I truly miss, but I think the Green Lantern is a much better ride. My rides on the Scream Machine are easily in the double-digits, but I just think the Green Lantern is a better ride. Does anyone think that havi
  10. I agree that the 0g roll was "tight" but if you look at it it is kind of lopsided. I definitely think thta they can kind of smooth this out in a way by stretching out the twist so it is not as high and turn it into a straighter twist, or put more arc or it and even it out. If you watch a POV video of it in slow motion, as it goes over the 0g rolls, it kind of pauses at the top of it. Stretching it out or rounding out the whole thing will elimintate the sharpness to it, which will also get rid of the forces going in reverse(obviously), making it a smoother ride. Also, on the topic of poor engin
  11. If it can't take the cobra rolls at 70 mph, then why not raise the height of it? I know it is not as simple as that, but can't they raise it's height then? It will slow it down, but then allow it to have enough speed to make it through the 0-g roll and up the spike...also you said that the Chiller has a more compact layout, can you explain this a bit...?
  12. I agree with you that the website isn't going to put in bad condition, but once again in the grand scheme of it, other LIM launches such as Joker's Jinx, and the reverse LIM coasters too like Mr. Freeze don't have as much wear and tear on the LIMs, none the less the cars. I believe that the reason they closed the ride was because of the accident that occured on June 28th 2007. Personally, I think they were going to keep running it even though some sources say it was going to close anyways. However, we can now look back on it and only improve ourselves. Also, once again, why can't a new Chiller
  13. Why exactly would we have to rebuild all of it? What exactly is wrong with the track between the LIMs? It would have to be repaired a bit because of how long it sat unused, but the only thing I could really think of is that the LIMs' sections would have to be replaced. Making an entirely new coaster while there is perfectly fine track seems a bit rediculous to me. On this website at the bottom, it says that the equipment condition is in very good shape... I don't think that very good shape means that a whole new ride is needed.Also if you don't mind me asking, who do you know who is high up on
  14. Just another idea would be to re-add the Chiller into Movietown and re-open Old Country with some new flats, then shoving it off as a 40th anniversary present... That would be awesome
  15. I agree that the parks do not have to worry about spending their money on one ride, but if the Mr. Freeze coasters were able to work out all the problems, then why can't a new Chiller do the same thing? Keep in mind that the Chiller was a prototype ride-- it was the FIRST EVER LIM launch coaster. Of course it is going to have some problems with it, that is a given seeing as it is a prototype. But that is usually what a prototype is--something to modify a legit copy after/off of. Anyways, no one ever said that a new Chiller would come back with the same exact design and same system...the park w
  16. Same thing can be said about any ride. God forbid something happens on that ride, is the park going to tear it down immidiately? Most likely not--there have been injuries on many rides before. And as batmanrobinchiller said, "bringing back the ride" is going to have new technology and new improvements to help improve the safety of the ride. With today's standards, any park is not going to bring in a ride that is unsafe--it is going to test it and test it and test it until it is flawless, and to the Chiller, this may mean raising the max height on the spikes or the speed at which the cars are p
  17. ok i made a post, but i guess it got added on to this one by the admin. and i didnt know where it went. i then looked back at this one and saw it because i asked for a link to the thread you were talking about. The thread is this whole discussion
  18. Exactly. And, if the rumors about Bizarro are true, the park could sell that. I would hate to see it go because it is a great ride with barely any wait time, but it doesn't get enough riders because it is all the way on the outermost edge of the park. So, selling Bizarro will get a lot of money because it is in perfectly good condition, or they could even get rid of the dark knight, which i absolutely despise. im sure other people hate it as well, so selling it and all the effects will also make a lot of money because the ride is in even better shape than Bizarro is, and it is newer. However,
  19. anything is a start but for now go back to the chiller thread people are starting to comment on that again

  20. well i mean i cant really do anything about it-- i dont have a youtube account but u do... or a petition on this site could work, but i dont think it is enough on just this site...we would need something bigger

  21. I understand that it is dangerous to have people stuck upside down, and i understand that its repair history is terrible, but keep in mind this was a prototype ride and its technology was from 1997. That is 15 years ago. Our technology has changed so much from then until now. Look at both the Mr. Freeze rides. They operate just fine, and it is a huge hit in their parks. Now imagine stripping the Chiller of all its technical components, installing new technology, and changing the spike's LIMs to say launch wheels to push the car back downwards. It uses half of the energy it normally does which
  22. the topic got put here--http://www.greatadventurehistory.com/Forums/index.php?showtopic=20&mode=show&st=220

  23. everyone says that there is no chance of it ever returning but i dont get why they kept the station there, the exit ramp, the observatory, etc. If there was no chance of it returning, why leave it there? Take it out, unless they are too cheap to pay to have it removed. I am aware as well that they use the observatory during frightfest, but after not being able to sell it(which im not sure is actually happening or not) hopefully they realize it is no good in its current state and decide to repair it if they still wanted to sell it. But,after repairing it, why not see if it works as it was suppo
  24. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA you got yourself about 10 views today... in the past 24 hours i have been trolling almost every video about the Chiller trying to find a lead, but i am talking specifically about this one --http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SAS2-EfL-E I dont know why but I love seeing this stuff even though it makes me incredibly sad to see it, and i get goosebumps when i watch this stuff. And, I totally agree about voicing our opinions. It may sound like I have no life, I assure you i do, in a survey about upcoming ideas from the park, there was a comment box in the end about anything. I wrot
