  1. They're having the event go for another week due to the great response from it!! So now, it'll go on until the 23rd.
  2. Watch out for it .... SUCH A FREAKING TEASE. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-sPIUFF4fZ/
  3. .....I'm gonna nut. Gaahhhh those trains are gorgeous and look so damn beautiful on the track! I can't wait to get to the park and ride that bad boy. It's gonna be even more awesome when they start adding landscape to the area.
  4. Wouldn’t it be such a great surprise when we get the official announcement of Kings Dominions new coaster that’ll replace Volcano and it ends up being that new AXIS COASTER?!!! Sigh, please....just let me dream for a second, thanks lol. Loving the look of the Pantheon trains!! Super colorful and vibrant!
  5. I think the last thing KD wants right now is another prototype/first of a kind. You got a point. But, it would be pretty damn epic if this type of coaster replaced Volcano. It would be super unexpected and truly brand new. I do see your point though. Let a guy dream haha.
  6. Could you imagine if this was going to freaking KD in place of Volcano?!! DUDE THAT WOULD BE FREAKING SICK!!!!
  7. Wait, someone seriously said they didn't see how Iron Gwazi is different than the OG Gwazi? ......... wow. Anywho, no I totally get what you're saying completely, Robb. As I said, I love the name, I'm not bothered by it, I guess I'm more upset at the fact that by them keeping the name, they didn't stick to the Lion/Tiger theme that went along with it. Nonethless, I'm stoked AF to ride it next year It's really going to put BGT on the map big time and it's definitely a coaster they've been needing to really amp up the parks line-up as a whole.
  8. To keep in line with their African inspired names, such as Montu, Sheikra, Kumba, etc., a better name would have been Twisted Mamba since Mamba in Swahili means crocodile and their theming this after a crocodile. There's no sense in naming it Iron Gwazi (NOT saying I don't like the name because I do) when it's being themed after a crocodile and Gwazi was themed around being a hybrid of a tiger/lion creature haha but, I do love that they're paying homage to the original coaster by keeping it's original name, nonetheless. I'm totally digging what we could see of the trains and the logo looks awesome, too! That purple track with the green trains is going to be a sick contrast. This is gonna be a HUGE hitter for BGT! It looks bad ass for sure. I'll definitely be making my way down there next year!
  9. That coaster better have a damn good lighting package to bring that bad boy to even MORE life!! At least have lighting on the trains or on the grounds amongst the coaster to really bring in that "devil" vibe. I know they won't do it, but a guy can dream lol. It looks bad ass!! HUGE AF, TOO. For some reason I was expecting something more compact, even a T-Rex style, but this is E P I C just as it is! That's gonna draw in a huge crowd for sure.
  10. What's up Jay? This is Doug (Spooky Villages). Cool to see you post here. I'm pretty excited to get visit Carowinds for the first time ever in two weeks. I have a work event in the city later in week, and it ends on Friday at noon so I'll be heading straight to the park for a few hours of coaster time. DOUG MY BOY!!! What are the odds haha. Dang we were right there at the park together and didn’t even know it! Cool to see you here bro!
  11. I'll be going today for passholder night!! I was originally going to wear cargo shorts until I saw the temperature it was going to be during the evening. By around 6pm when it starts it'll be 62 degrees and dropping to the mid 50s before the event ends, so I'll definitely be wearing a jacket LOL. I can't wait!!!
  12. I loved Icon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and Copperhead Strike looks like it has an even more exciting layout. If this rides anything like Icon, Carowinds has another win on their hands. I can't imagine how anyone could be skeptical, either. Because a bunch of people expected this to be some super hyper launching coaster like Xcelerator or something lol. Like come on, look at the other videos of Mack launch coasters. Aside from Helix, Copperhead Strike is one of the better launcher layouts from them and it seems like it'll pack quite a punch.
  13. Dude I've already seen so many people comment and complain about it haha. Like come on, this coaster wasn't meant to be no super balls to wall intense launch coaster and not every launch coaster has to be that.
