Carowinds Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Well i made it to Season Pass Preview Night...I didn't expect that many people to be there! It was my first time attending. It was like a busy Saturday, but on a Thursday!

 

I was only able to ride Fury twice, Intimidator and Carolina Cobra once. Probably could have ridden more, but i only stayed for about two hours.

 

Operations were painfully slow at Intimdator(3 trains), the ride ops at Fury (3 trains) were rocking and rolling, they had their act together. Cobra actually moved pretty fast to...maybe a 15-20 min wait.

Unfortunately, Carowinds has been removed from our planned trips this year due to the Pro-Discrimination legislation that was just passed in NC. Half of the park is in NC. Not a $ will be spend in NC this year by us.

 

lol, your loss. I'll post some pictures of Fury325 for you when I go later this Spring. Save your political/social issues comments for other boards.

Hey prozy, just because you are of the privileged class that doesn't have to worry about going somewhere you don't have to be in fear or be discriminated against for who you are, please top with the P/A attitude. Post all the pics you want. There are plenty of other coasters just as good, if not better in places where everyones $ is welcome without predjudice.

It's sad, but our government is bought and paid for by corporations these days. They don't work for the people. The best way to get action is to hit the corporations in the pocket. Only then will anyone with actual influence put pressure on these corporate puppets in government. A tourist destination like Carowinds could have some influence.

As the great Robb once said:

 

Bring politics or some stupid crap like this on our forums again and you will be banned faster than you can fall off a log flume.

Oh this again? Anyone who claims they're boycotting a state because of a political decision was never planning to go anyway. You just want an excuse to talk about political and social issues on a coaster forum which nobody wants to do.

I will respectfully disagree as I do not see a problem with someone backing out for those reasons. To each his own though.

 

I never said I had a problem with someone doing it. I said nobody was going to. Millions of people will claim they're boycotting the state and approximately 7 of them might have actually have been planning to go there. This is true every time anyone of any political affiliation decided to spread the word about boycotting a state.

 

Anyway can we talk about opening weekend?

 

Edit: Okay yeah this guy has been whining about Carowinds for years. I'm sure it was real high up in your travel list to begin with. Sounds like he just wants another excuse to talk about how he's not going to Carowinds

I got my season pass and I'll be there in April. Can't wait to try out Plants v Zombies. And it doesn't bother me when somebody says their not visiting the park because of whatever reason...Just means there's less people there and less time I have to wait in line for Fury 325.

I went in the evening Saturday to get a couple rides. First ride was on Intimidator and I was sadly not impressed. At the end of last year she was really delivering on the airtime but she was running a little more sluggish with the trims really cranked up. Also, I was not impressed by the ride ops. I asked if there was anyway to get the back and the attendant replied with "no" and that was all. Also, after getting buckled in and lowering the clamshell, the ride op came to me and shoved the restraint down twice and it didn't click down any further so he put all his weight into it practically crushing my waist and jabbing the metal buckle into my hip bone. After I winced in pain I asked him to pop it and he replied with "it's better now isn't it?" Fortunately, later that evening we got a little better experience on Intimidator.

 

Fury, on the other hand, was cranking through guests as always. This crew really knows what they're doing and the ride was running great still. I can't find a flaw in this ride and the more I ride it, the more I appreciate it, and I really love the turnaround into the tunnel. That sideways airtime is one of the most beautifully bizarre moments and it really makes me anxious to experience Lightning Rod's wave turn.
