As we watch the progress of construction for the new Justice League ride, let's look back at the assembly of the Chiller's station which was being erected twenty years ago on the same site.    

This picture was posted on reddit by user FluffyDragonBoi today.  The picture was taken about two weeks ago and shows the sign from The Chiller is still at the farm where parts of the ride were stored

I own the book this picture comes from! And it has a lot of good pics. of chiller.

And other weirdness all around:

Chiller will fit right in if the rumors are true, and I'm sure it will be themed to a superhero named Bortman and his sidekick Ribbon.

  • 1 month later...

I wonder what the sale price was? Considering how long its been sitting idle in a field, I guess it went cheaply. It would need to. Otherwise, why pay to ship a failed ride overseas, and incur the cost of re-assembly? I wonder if Premier Rides will handle the refurbishment. Will they reinstall the heart-line rolls or the humps? I'm far more curious to see what is done to the coaster, than in actually ride it.

Hi

I'm participating in the CBMR (Clube Brasileiro de Montanhas-Russas) and I live very close to the park.

 

I would like to inform you that we are very happy if the park to confirm the purchase, in case, the 25th of this month will be announced in the new BNT park attractions. There is suspicion of an alliance between the Beto Carrero World, and two of the largest and most important film companies and the entertainment world. Still unknown.

I affirm that the park is safe and of high level. Its attractions are fully taken care and maintenance is done weekly.

 

 

I know there's some strange things in the park... but some users do not like very much the comments, never criticize any international park, and we will not make it.

More about the Beto Carrero World:

 

Latin America's largest theme park, with its 14 million square meters, is settled in one of the most beautiful locations of the Brazilian coast, Penha beach, North of Santa Catarina. With more than 100 attractions for all ages and daily 1.100 artists and employees participation, Beto Carrero World reached its 17 years of activities never leaving growing and excellence behind.

 

Defined by its idealist Beto Carrero as the "Brazilian family park", the leisure center offers a complete service substructure, restaurants, snack bars, ice cream parlors, diaper changing station, lockers, gift shops, parking lot, and everything in an ideal surrounding safe condition.

To enchant "children of all ages" the park counts with shows, breath taking rides with different sizes and styles, railroad rides and a chairlift, theme areas and a zoo. You will find charming landscape and refreshing tree shade. Not to say much, last year three thousand tree seeds were planted.

Check the options - breathe, because you will get more excited right next.

 

When Beto Carrero chose to settle down in Penha, North coast of Santa Catarina, he already bet in regional tourist attraction integration. Only 35 kilometers from Balneário Camboriú, 60 from Blumenau, 66 from Joinville, the park is halfway from cities that offer shopping tourism, ethnical fests, gastronomy and a lot of beaches. The two capitals are also near - from Florianópolis 110 kilometers and from Curitiba 195, both connected by highways (Road 101 and 376).

With 10 thousand square meters, it holds booking-offices, banks and shops. After going through this grand castle, the visitor will find the Event Square, Cine MadEmotion, the Chairlift, the Palace of Ice Creams and other great attractions that integrate the Nation Avenue.

The Park's Zoo is one of the biggest and most beautiful of the world, with more than 700 animals from 171 different species, settled in an environment that reproduces their own habitat. There are zebras, elephants, tigers, lions, jaguars, llamas, bears, alligators, deers, baboons, hippopotamus, chimps, camels, tamanduas, ostriches, peacocks, swans and a lot more. In the Snake-pit (Serpentário) the native snakes have a special spot, a mini rain forest environment reproduction and a meadow, with pit vipers, venomous pit vipers, boa constrictors and rattlesnakes, show the species' exoticism and mysticism.

 

The Primate Science Center (Centro de Primatologia) is a highlight at the Zoo, because Beto Carrero's team gives the primates special attention. Concerned with their safety, welfare and entertainment, an 11 island archipelago was built, being always monitored by the park's veterinarian and biologist. A maternity hospital and a clinic are also part of the primates' complex. Another distinguishable attraction is the Island of Baboons (Ilha dos Babuínos).

 

The World of Horses (Mundo dos Cavalos) is another Beto Carrero World's innovation. It's a 5 thousand square meter visiting area and almost a two thousand square meter backstage (for equine nursing).

A long suspension bridge is the Island of Pirates (Ilha dos Piratas) entrance; animatronic puppets present the tradition and behavior of the "sea robbers" to the visitors. The constructions and the boats are inspired in the Captain Flick and his crew stories that lived in the sea hunting for treasures. In this place, the visitor can find attractions like the Great Cave (Grande Caverna), the Stranded Boat (Barco Encalhado), the Pirates' Cave (Caverna dos Piratas), place where they hid their gold, the Galleon (Galeão) and the Pirate Bar (Bar Pirata), the fun House of Mirrors (Casa dos Espelhos), the Lighthouse (Farol) and the Pirate Boat (Barco Pirata) are some of Beto Carrero World's extreme rides.

 

The Far West (Velho Oeste) reproduces a typical 19th century North American city, when the territory was colonized towards Pacific Ocean. Peculiar constructions, like the Fort Alamo (Forte Álamo), the Saloon and all the characters (the sheriff, cowboys, prospectors, showgirls, gunmen) the Gold-Mine (Mina de Ouro), notable characteristic of that time and the Indian Tribe (Aldeia Indígena) show the visitants their habits.

 

A long stop at the Fantasy Land (Terra da Fantasia) is inevitable, the adventure starts at the boarding station, the imposing João Alves de Queiroz, where visitors are properly warned: "If you are afraid of the dark and giants you better stay at the station". With an 11 million reais initial investment, the Dinomagic Railroad (Ferrovia Dinomagic) offers a ride through out the world of magic filled with giant animals and frightening dinosaurs. On the way, oriented by the locomotive engineer that explains the attractions, visitors find the Hope Village (Vila Esperança) (typical Azorean place), the Land of Giants (Terra dos Gigantes) where, besides watching animals in a size never seen before, they are swallowed by an enormous snake. Trough the journey there is a chance to check the Rain Forest, where the visitor can breathe fresh air enclosed by native vegetation carefully preserved by Beto Carrero World. Also sees Beto Carrero's House, faces a Train Robbery (Assalto ao Trem) - staged by actors and one of the most amazing moments of the ride. Passes through the Model Vegetable Garden (Horta Modelo) cultivated by the Park and the Arabian Tent (Tenda Árabe), where a sultan lives with his wives. But the strongest point of the ride is the Dinosaurs Cave (Caverna dos Dinossauros), a huge theater where visitors watch, from inside the train, a fantastic light and sound show with dinosaurs in their real size and natural movements facing hostile situations in their wild life in the Jurassic period.

 

There is a part of Germany at the German Village (Vila Germânica). A German style house complex is the perfect replica of a typical village. The spot pays homage to the immigrants that helped Santa Catarina build its wealth. And of course, it couldn't work without a typical restaurant: the Bier Haus that offers Beto Carrero World's visitors a typical German gastronomy.

 

Safety

When it comes to safety, there is no playing around at Beto Carrero World! All efforts are made to assure the visitors' welfare. The Park strictly follows the rules given by the ride's manufacturer, exhaustively tests each equipment before releasing it to the public and carries on with regular preventive maintenance. The day starts with a very detailed safety check list, called start up, without it, nothing operates.

There are also written safety procedures and oral orientation given by the monitors in each attraction, regarding on how the rides work, proper age and to whom is suitable, in case of extreme rides. Besides, these equipments structurally have a device that inhibits its function if the person hasn't buckled the safety-belt properly. Parents with small kids get especial information in each attraction.

 

This binomial - prevention and attention - is essential and it has been keeping the park away from serious accidents, between visitors and staff, for over 16 years.

 

Services

1.100 people work in the Park, they are collaborators and third party services providers - these last ones in 45 small businesses, distributed in 78 selling spots. There are 22 snack bars, seven restaurants, eight bombonieres and six ice cream parlors. Most of the entrepreneurs live in the coast near the Park, many of them used to be fishermen.

I'm so sorry for the mess the brazilians are making here. Please keep in mind that not all the brazilians are like that, and there are some brazilians that speak a decent english.

 

I live in Brazil, but I travel a lot around the world, and BCW is indeed, a weird park. At the same time it has some "major" rides like an Intamin Drop Tower (two, in fact), and a SLC coaster, it lacks themeing, accessbility, landscaping and originality.

 

The sad fact is that some brazilian's don't know how to take criticism, and most of them don't get american humour. It's low self esteem + lack of money to travel abroad, I guess... But I can assure you that not all brazilians are close minded like that.

 

I don't agree with our parks policy of buying old, unwanted stuff, like the Chiller and Deja Vu (whitch is rotting away in Recife). I think a decent, large mine train would be a better addition to BCW right now.

No offense taken and we don't mean to criticize the park in Brazil. It offers a lot of different things that are just a little strange compared to things here in the U.S. We just hope that Chiller operates a little more reliably in South America than it did at Great Adventure. We will be curious to see how it goes!

 

Welcome everyone to our site!

Sorry Maria Renata, you only know to criticize our Brazilian parks, so that was banned by an administrator to cause confusion.

At no time demand the opnion of Americans, and yes, we tried to show in fact how the park is.

I come on behalf of multiple users, I ask that is most consistent with your comments.

 

 

Changing the subject, someone possesses something new?

 

Thank you.
