  1. I am planning to visit Carowinds for the first time on Saturday, June 20th. We plan on driving down from Ohio on Friday afternoon and will be staying at the Best Western across the street. We were planning on spending a full day at the park that Saturday and then continuing on to the next leg of the trip on Sunday. Kings Island is our home park, so I was wondering how the typical Saturday crowd at Carowinds compares to Kings Island. I am thinking about indulging in Fast Lane but am still on the fence. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips so that we can get the most out of our visit?
  2. I really hope that was a joke, especially because I personally know the family. Sure the video might have been a bit cheesy, but I am pretty sure this is meant to appeal to the general public/family crowd and not the coaster enthusiast community. So much bitching over this, atleast the park is getting new FAMILY rides. It is not like the park received a nice shiny coaster or something last year... I look forward to this improvement, helps to spruce up an area of the park that really needs it!

  4. I have always loved the way this roll looks on Firehawk at Kings Island. Terrible ride, but the track looks sexy.
  5. Where are you reading that? Nowhere did it mention stats for the ride, and it did not say the ride *would* be a record breaker. It suggested and implied it *could* be, but the article reads more like a expanded rumor, and nothing factual. Are you reading the same article I am? http://www.sanduskyregister.com/sandusky/belaboring-point/cedar-point/blog-cedar-points-wing-coaster-answers-enthusiasts-prayer There is a real article in the physical paper (that isn't a blog).
  6. I would honestly love to see Space Spiral preserved, but with its lack of attendance and Windseeker being built close by, I felt like its days were numbered.
  7. Sounds like Cedar Point has a great coaster coming for next year. 170ft tall, tallest, fastest, and steepest wing rider coaster built to date. believe the article also mentioned that it would be the longest wing rider coaster. I am really excited for new life to be brought back to that area, I am sure that entire area is going to look 1000x different come this time next year.
  8. I don't understand why the park continued to sell passes right up to the closing. There is no way this was a last minute decision! The owners need to refund the passholders or be charged with fraud...
  9. -Magic Kingdom -EPCOT -Animal Kingdom -Hollywood Studios -Busch Gardens Tampa -Sea World Orlando -Kings Dominion -Cedar Point I would say a pretty successful year!
  10. Steel: 1. Top Thrill Dragster (420') 2. Millennium Force (310') 3. Intimidator 305 (305') 4. Diamondback (230') 5. Magnum XL-200 (205') Wood: 1. Mean Streak (161') 2. Beast (110') 3. Gwazi (105') 4. Grizzly (87') 5. Hurler (83')
  11. I disagree, there really is no CF park that is in need of a hypercoaster. Michigan's Adventure - At this time to small/low attendance to support a ride of this caliber. California's Great America - Could use a hyper, too risky to install such a large ride due to the park situation. Plus the city would never allow it. Knott's - The only viable option I see, I agree this ride could have been meant for Knott's. Every other Cedar Fair park has a large hypercoaster of some type. The only other park I could see this going to would be Worlds of Fun. We have to remember though that Cedar Fair is out to make a profit, having this coaster at WOF would probably not be very profitable for the company. CW on the other hand will generate a huge profit. Canada's Wonderland and King's Island seem like great choices for a ride of this size. The goal of CF is to bring in paying customers, not to please coaster enthusiasts. From a business perspective this is a great move IMO. TL;DR: Behemoth was a huge success for CW, why not build an even better one to bring in more people?
