With Chiller gone now they need to put something in the Movietown area of the park. It seemed dead already with Freefall gone. The only thing left there is Batman.

I just got back from the park. It is sad to see Chiller coming down. I will definately miss it. I have some pictures from the day, including Chiller Deconstruction.

I believe KK will always have the possibility of being taken out.

I started to cry looking at those pictures....goodbye chiller I will miss you soo much! for all the neck pains and near black outs you gave me...as well as the mild headache from the sound of the train launch over me when I didn't expect it.

:cry:

I'm sorry, but I find it quite funny that you are crying over a roller coaster.

^And I find it funny that you don't get the sarcasm in that.

What does that have to do with the topic and KK has really picked itself up this year, all four trains working with minimum downtime...

There are those of us here how hold parks and rides very dear, and yes, some do cry when you've had great times with either and then they're gone. One day friend, you'll understand.

Yes, but there are so many worse things to cry about, while he is crying over a roller coaster.

^Yes there are greater things in the world, but until you experience what I'm talking about, you won't understand.

When I visited what was left of Opryland USA earlier this year, I cried some. The one time I visited the park in 1994, I had a great and comical time there. The place and it's rides had a special vibe that you don't get at just any park. Knowing that it was suddenly gone and seeing what was leftover was and still is very sad. Many others feel similarly about Opryland and various other parks and coasters. You're not just losing some random piece of steel or wood here, but a reminder of some of the happy or silly memories that go along with it.

Think what you will. Call me weak or pathetic to be passionate about coasters and parks, but deep down, you too share this same passion or you wouldn't be a member of this board.

Coasters may not be as important in the grand scheme as other things, but they do hold a special place in all our hearts. When that place is empty, we weep.

BTW for those interested, there is a video called "The Coasters of Six Flags Great Adventure" (or something similar) that R&E shot few years ago. It has Nitro, Medusa, BOTH SIDES OF CHILLER, and Viper PoVs. Dunno where it is here, but it's worth a download.
