It doesn't really crawl like it does in the video anymore. On all 3 of my rides yesterday when we crested the lift we still had some speed to the train even with the cable still attached. Just not the extreme speed like before though.

Just to mention the wheels can go whatever speed the train wants to go, the wheels dont decide the speed of the train. The wheels do not have a maximum RPM. The only thing that would really change the wheels spinning faster would be better lubricant, but that would increase speed slightly and would decrease the speed lost throughout the ride.
Ok I must admit, I have never ridden it before, as the last time I went to America was about ten years ago, so I can't really give my opinions on how the ride feels itself I'm just trying to contribute something to help!
Deconstruction has already started on Chiller at Six Flags Great Adventure. It has been closed since June and though it has been said that they were going to fix it totally, it seems like it fell through and they have begun to rip it down.
You can see photos being taken at the park today at this link!
It would really suck if they tore down this ride. I only got to ride the Robin side, but it was really good when I rode it.
Not to be annoying or anything, but how do we know that those pictures are from recently and aren't from last offseason when they replaced the zero g roll with fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hill?
^Because as you can see the Zero-G-Roll is already replaced in those pictures. Plus theres some of that "sneak-peak" theming for Fright Fest in one of those pictures. Im only assuming though, I could be wrong.
^screamscape has been talking about this for a while and another site I'm on (the main SFGAdv fan site) has confirmed this too. Plus those pictures look valid, as one of them has a spider web netting for Fright Fest on the queue.
I'm not sure how I feel about this, I'm relieved, yet I'm sad. GAdv is my homepark and I'm relieved because I was always tired of the status of this ride, I was always hoping to get on it everytime I went because it wasn't always a gaurantee because of being broken or having lines a mile long. But, I am also sad because this was a unique ride, no where else in the world did a coaster like this exist. Sure Mr. Freeze is out there but this one was a dueling ride and 2 completely different coasters. I had 3 spins on Batman and 7 on Robin overall. Well, I guess I'm saying goodbye yet again to another thing besides GL. 1998-2007, Chiller will DEFINITELY be missed because there is no doubt this was a park favorite because it was that unique.
