I only was able to ride robin and the rolls were the best. It was awesome while it lasted.

One thing That would have been really cool during the time when the coasters raced would have been to get yourself on one and a friend on the other if possible. WOuld have made an interesting time trying to see where the other one was going through the loops and such :)

Good news as always, and nice to hear from you on here again sir :)

 

My friends and I use to do that on Lightnin' Loops. It was really hard coordinating it though because the two stations were so far apart and the lines were extra long way back when they use to have both loops open. Today it would be much easier with cell phone communications. :)

I found some great b-roll of both sides of the Chiller in operation during the 2006 season.

That would be so cool, you could high five each other if they were synchronized!

 

 

never been on the batman side (i wish i did) (if it was open when i was there in 06')

 

omg chiller come back please :(

 

I'm so with you on this one... That's my current wish for Sixflags. Unfortunately, it probably will always be that, seeing as it probably won't return...

 

Also, nice video Luis!

The last time I got to ride both sides, Batman and Robin, was probably around 1999-2000.

It was about that time when they were running one or the other instead of both. I am pretty sure it was 1999 because I remember the hype of Medusa and all the new stuff pertaining to the War On Lines campaign.

Sad that we'll never have the chance again.

GA Outpost had the YouTube video below referenced in one of their threads. Skip to about 3:30 and watch how close the train gets to the end of the track! I rode Chiller several times when it came close to the end, but I don't think it ever came THAT close!

I would like to see that but Hell has to freeze over and pigs have to start flying before that happens. :(
