Carowinds Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted November 27, 2022 I went to Carowinds for the first time yesterday. I had a good time, despite slow ops. The Winterfest theming was beautiful, although it was jarring jumping straight into Christmas mode one day after thanksgiving, lol. Here's what I rode: Fury 325 x2 Copperhead Strike x1 Afterburn x1 Wilderness Run x1 Nighthawk x1 Fury, Afterburn, and Nighthawk were all running one train. Nighthawk in particular had very sluggish dispatches, so we waited about an hour in line for that. Copperhead Strike was running two trains and operations there were quite fast. Carolina Cyclone was down the whole time, and Copperhead Strike went down at about 7, so I only got to ride it once. Fury was amazing, tons of airtime. All in all, a super fun ride. Hot take: Goliath at SFOG is still a better B&M hyper A pretty good first visit with two rides on one of the best rollercoasters in the world. Can't wait to go back soon!
