Carowinds Discussion Thread

P. 403 - Park opening for a limited Holiday Event!

Recommended Posts

Not a first timer at the park, but I will be getting my first ride on Fury this Saturday. Looks like the forecast shifted a bit and now there's just a 20% chance of rain . How bad are the lines at Carowinds usually this time of year on a Saturday? I'm thinking of getting Fast Lane Plus, but I haven't pulled the trigger on it, yet.

Friday will be my first visit to the park, and I already bought my Fast Lane Plus online. I would definitely invest in it for Saturday considering it's the "Taste of Carolina's" event. New people. New crowds. I was going Saturday, but I decided to stick with Friday since school will be in.

Early in the mornings its still that way. I know we are only two weeks into the season but it seemed almost daily, while watching the cam, the season pass processing always had a line. Looks like people are taking advantage of that reasonably priced season pass!

Aren't the one at Carowinds and Knotts the only ones to actually get people stuck?? I know, all the other ones have had their downtime, but most of it was a chain wide thing and not the individual Windseekers right?

 

 

I'm thinking it may have been the wind. That week winds were on the high side and I heard if the chairs swing to much it would cause the ride to stop. A ride op said that the dampers have a small sensor on them to so if it moves to much the ride stops. Is this true? I dont know; that's just what I've been told.

Well, I made it, but I took the locals advice to wait till tomorrow for the "Taste of Carolina's" event. Besides, it's cold and raining on and off. I'll wait this day out. Even though Fury 325 is right outside my window! I'm trying to contain myself!

 

If it's in your budget (and it clears up), Carowinds has an after 4pm ticket for $29.99 if you want to go over and get a preview later this afternoon.

 

Also it looks like the bus parking lot is pretty full from the webcam today. The premium parking is filling up as well.

Well enjoy. Charlotte is my hometown. I've been gone for 9 years (outside of a weekend visit 5 years ago). I'll be going up in June for a week and can't wait!
