  1. Since when did 1=1,000,000 He was talking about cash. I'm pretty sure it didn't cost them $1 to retrack a roller coaster. About Fury, after riding it over twenty times I have found the following aspects of the ride to be interesting: 1) The intensity- The first half of this ride is a masterpiece. I absolutely loved it. The drop is the best I've been on, and the transitions on the speed curves are nice. Going up the turnaround caused me to grey out, as did the bottom of the drop. I did not expect Fury to be this intense, to say the least. 2) The wait times- The wait peaked at about two hours on Saturday. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the line peaked at around 30 minutes. Monday morning was a walk on. 3) The airtime- The first time I rode Fury, the airtime was floater at best. I don't know what it is now (perhaps the warm weather) but the airtime is the best of any B&M in a long time. I can't imagine what the airtime would be like without that trim on the largest camelback. Also, there are surprise airtime moments on this ride. Descending down the first turn, transitioning into the second turn, etc. They all have some nice pops of airtime to them. 4) The turnaround- My favorite coaster element in a while. I understand the reason one greys out is because of loss of blood to the head. Heading up the turnaround, I grey out a little every time. The thing is, once you hit the top of the turnaround, the awesome sideways air shoots the blood right back into your head. It's one of the weirdest feelings I've experienced on a coaster. Fury 325 is an amazing ride to say the least, and it is tied for I305 for #1, and here's my main reason why: Fury has the amazing drop of Millennium Force, the speed and intensity (not quite as much) of I305, and the airtime of something like Diamondback. It's honestly a joy to ride.
  2. I said the line may approach two hours, and it did. The longest wait today was two hours.
  3. It was awesome! It evoked a unique sideways-airtime feeling, was absolutely great.
  4. It is definitely better than MF, but I have it tied with i305 for my #1 spot.
  5. Exactly what he said. The whole ride is faster than it looks on POV.
  6. Fury was amazing! Might just be my new #1! The first half is blistering speed, and the second half has some strong floater air, and the awesome B&M restraints make it all the more better! The dive under the bridge was fantastic, and the drop was great as well. Surpassed my expectations!Let me add that the food is great this year also. Entrance was very spacious, wish it had a little more shade though for those hot days.
  7. Carowinds is never that crowded. An hour is the most it could be.
  8. Line for Fury will be 20-40 minutes, it won't even approach an hour. Intimidator never gets above 30 minutes either. Nighthawk is one of those rides you MUST ride early in the day as lines approach 1-2 hours at midday. The rest are fairly tame lines as well, as Carowinds is never really THAT crowded. Afterburn is a stud though, make sure you don't forget it.
  9. Obviously it has some force to it as the top of one of the dummies popped off today.
  10. It's not sped up, it's just that fast. (this is originally my video but it's been reused)
  11. Dare I say it but that looked like ejector airtime on a B&M.
  12. I don't think the line will be more than an hour, maybe a bit more (at the most). Opening day 2010 Intimidator's line never even approached an hour.
  13. I don't remember the part where I "cited" Wikipedia. I was treating it as a joke rather, if you could not tell.
