  1. ^ Oh, well this is nice: http://www.carowinds.com/events/newsletter.cfm
  2. The stakes(at least two of them) are directly under the brakerun & almost on top of the footers & have the pink flags on them....I noticed it yesterday while getting off the ride to photograph the construction progress. When are you going to post your pics?
  3. Direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tj-OQKGDWlk From bgwfreak on CarowindsConnection.
  4. I thought they were oompa loompas. MOD EDIT: Deleted last sentence. Not necessary.
  5. New pics are now up: http://www.kdfansite.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=69&pos=0
  6. More and more footers are going in. Update pics from FSUNolez and Wormy can be seen here on page 125: http://www.carowindsconnection.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2601&start=1860
  7. Update pics taken today from Derek now up on page 122 here: http://carowindsconnection.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2601&start=1815
  8. Diamondback's footers aren't connected with concrete like that though. This appears to be one big footer not four separate ones.
  9. New pics page 2, 3, and 4: http://kdfansite.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0&page=2 Only one of the lift pieces so far has a support attachment which could make this a vertical lift coaster.
  10. Update pics from JamminJ on page 108 of track and supports at plant: http://www.carowindsconnection.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2601&start=1605
  11. Rebar is starting to go into the ground. Update pics on pages 106 & 107: http://www.carowindsconnection.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2601&start=1590 Still no support or track pieces on site yet.
  12. Drainage pipes and concrete catch basins now on site and starting to go into the ground. Update pics and information can be found here on page 98: http://www.carowindsconnection.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2601&p=29660#p29660
  13. Tell the residents to eat crow. Since when does a coaster make as much noise as a low flying 747? They shouldn't have moved next to an amusement park if they didn't want to hear the coasters in the first place. More pics and information. These are from charlotteguy02 on Carowinds Connection: Below you will find a link to photos I took of the parking lot this afternoon. To clear a few things up, they are NOT tearing up the parking lot yet. They did do a small repair job just outside of the fenced area near the South Gate, which explains the small pile of asphalt that sits just inside the fence. Also, there is some asphalt being torn up, but that is just from the dump trucks/heavy equipment going in and out of the job site. You will notice in the photos a nice gentleman let me take his photo while he was surveying the parking lot and marking/re-marking footer locations in bright orange paint. The dump trucks continued to move dirt off site, and in quite a hurried fashion. While I was there only twenty minutes or so, several dump truck loads of dirt were hauled off. They did have the entire back section of the parking lot closed off with orange cones, which are also in the photos, although I am assuming they do this only during the week when there are less guests. Other than that, not much else to report from the parking lot at this point. Here is a link to the photos: http://s716.photobucket.com/albums/ww170/charlotteguy02/Construction/
  14. Tell me about it. The GP are crazy. Why does CGA have noise restrictions?
  15. The last time Carowinds got a new good coaster that wasn't for little kids only was when Top Gun now AfterBurn was built. That was in 1998/1999. Cobra was never even supposed to come to Carowinds originally. The only reason it did was because Geauga Lake closed. I don't see how anybody can call a Boomerang a major coaster anyways.
  16. Credit to Wes from Carowinds Connection for pics and ummm...captions below: Let's get it on! The money shot. Going down. If the trailer's rockin' .... Getting on top. From behind. There's glory behind these holes. Harder! Deeper! They've almost got this licked. Mound. So dirty... Melts in your mouth...... Totally bare. Totally naked. It was pretty hot riding Dora today. Voy a admitir, que uno está sucio. Get on your boots. Pole. Good place to get some cream. Lots of bumping and grinding. Doggie style. Hot and wet. Thought I'd whip this one out. Packing a lot of wood. Sometimes this happens. I'll leave it to someone else to post parking lot pictures. Even though this one is quite interesting, I was too "intimidated" by the FUZZ.
  17. Freestyle Music Park videos from the State newspaper: http://www.thestate.com/breaking/story/797556.html
  18. Parking lot is fenced off and demolition of log flume is almost complete. We're ready. The question is are you?
  19. Here is the news article with new name attached: http://www.thesunnews.com/news/local/story/854522.html
