Actually there is IS no airtime, maybe a little float if you are in the back. I rode front row and maybe thats why I did'nt get any airtime, maybe you'll get it in the back. But also don't forget the Chiller restriants are tight and they hold you in relaly good so theres another possible reason for no airtime.

And i'm not fat :evil: if anythnig i'm underweight!

You are trying to tell me there is no airtime after I rode it 10 times yesterday and every time I made a return trip, I was getting airtime. Yeah it wasn't Toro like but it was there. And even my friend next to me was getting airtime. SO clearly you are just SOL. I rode in pretty much every row and I got airtime in each. Even after being stapled. Your story holds no water.



maybe your jsut relaly skinny, or maybe the op did'nt staple you. Okay I got a tiny float but it's not enough to call airtime. and WTF is SOL?

Firstly, TPR has a spell check...USE IT.

Secondly, Being skinny has nothing to do with it. My 6'2 friend was getting airtime and he is very moderately sized. And we were even stapled. Airtime is clearly any point on the ride when the vertical G's of the coaster drop to 0 or below. Just because its not ejector air does not disqualify it from being airtime.

I am sure if Rob Alvey called it airtime, you all would be bending over for him and agreeing with him. There is airtime on Chiller and the new transition did bring down the intensity of the ride, but in the end, Chiller still rocks.

I rode it three times today and Chiller did infact give some decent floater airtime. It's no Toro or Nitro air, but the ride still is awesome.

Then obviously being fat has nothing to do with it because I recall you said I must be fat or SOL (what ever that means). I realize it doesn't have to be like toro to be airtime I want to know exactly where you sat so i'll sit there tomorrow and see if I get "airtime". I sat front row on the left and I got nothing.

I sat in every row pretty much. Anywhere you sit you are going to get airtime backwards.

SOL: Sh*t Outta Luck.

By the way, I've found that different people feel airtime differently. To some people, floater air is insanely intense, and to others, floater air is about as exciting as sitting down. So it might just depend on how you feel airtime.

Just a few of the TPR members that chose to hang out at the park that day instead of having lunch with their mothers!
(Yes, it was Mother's Day!) I hope you at least bought her flowers! =)

Now THAT is a sexy first drop!

Image
And GCI Guys Mike Boodley and Clair Hain ride gansta style!

Image
As with all GCI woodies, there is lots of sexy curves to keep you stimulated.

Awww....this is as far as they would let KidTums get! Maybe in a few years she'll be screaming through Renegade too.

Image
Lots of cross overs and all that other good wood coaster stuff.
