Is this related to past rumors of its sale, or is it an entirely new development?


I was just browsing through Intermark and found it surprising that it was sold.

If it is a park that it was sold to it was probably international, and not very large. I'm thinking this because parks in this country would probably stray away from something with as much bad publicity as chiller.

A park is not going to care about negative publicity (unless a death was involved) but they could be scared away by the maintenance issues.

By bad publicity I meant it almost always being down, and I remember all my talking about how it had too many problems too be opened.

I really hope that chiller can find a nice home in America. One of my earliest memories at Great Adventure was sitting by the fence to Chiller and watching the trains launch. I even saw it stall out once.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I'd love for it to find a new home but I'm thinking it was sold for scrap but you never know. Hopefully official news will come out soon.

Do you mean you went in the area or went in the station?
