Batman and Robin: The Chiller were a pair of steel launched shuttle roller coasters located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA. The roller coasters were built by Premier Rides and operated from 1997 to 2007. They closed due to the constant downtime and flaws in the ride's operation, Six Flags removed the ride from the park in the fall of 2007. All track and supports were removed, however the station, observatory scenery piece, and outdoor queue line were left remaining.
After its closure, the ride was stored in a facility near the park. In 2012, it arrived at Beto Carrero World where it now lies in storage.
Chiller used a LIM launch system that propelled the trains from 0 to 70 mph in roughly 4 seconds. In the debut season the ride originally ran dueling as intended for a short time. Due to the amount of power used by the LIMs straining the infrastructure with a duel launch, operations were changed so that a train could only be launched after the other train cleared the LIMs on the spike. Batman was launched into a 140-foot (43 m) top hat inversion. It then went through a banked inclined S-curve (formerly a zero-g roll) and then repeated the entire process in reverse. Robin had a similar track layout, except it had a 105 foot cobra roll instead of a top hat. Because of the differentiating heights in the main elements (and therefore the speed required to return through the course) Batman required 14 LIMs on the spike while Robin usually only needed 6 or 8.
2 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders per train.
One train per side.
