Great report! I've solo ridden Excalibur quite a bit during the day and that's eerie enough. I can only imagine how much more awesome doing so at night on a larger coaster like Fury would be.

This looks so awesome. Fury 325 is yet another amazing take your breath away, never ending drop.

I figured Laura would find, and look happiest, on a carousel :)

I love Furry 325! One of my favorite B&Ms. Looks like you had an amazing time. And solo rides? Sweet! Did any trains come back empty? :omg:

Those sunset pics make me jealous the forecast calls for rain and thunder for my visit to Carowinds next week. Still extremely excited for Fury, though!

Fury's a very good ride, but I think Afterburn is still the best coaster at Carowinds.

My fav at the park is Intimidator. I can ride it many more times than Fury. It's in my top 10 where Fury isn't. Looks like a great time. I'm guessing K.D. is the next stop???

Not the carousel ?? :p

The horses all have names! (My pink lady was “princess”)


Well now that I know this...of course I want to ride Princess! :p

Man!!! I wish I would have known you guys were coming to SFOG earlier this week. I would have made it my business to join you all! I have been so out of the loop this past week. :(

But yes... Twisted Cyclone is all types of awesome! I have ridden it 54 times so far. I literally use both of my skip the line passes for it (unless its extremely hot - then one of them is used for Thunder River :p ). I plan on going tomorrow to get at-least two more rides in. It reminds me of my little sister -- Short but AMAZING! :airtime: :airtime:
