Carowinds Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^Well, there's no train in any of the concept art on the Carowinds website, so my guess is that there will be no train at all.

In all seriousness, I believe that it already has the newer style Vekoma train. If anything, a repaint to go along with the usual offseason maintenance.

The train is indeed the newest style of train for this type coaster. According to the concept that was on their Airtime Blog sometime back it did show the train cars to be painted different colors to emphasize the "S" in The Flying Cobra(S) name (each car is a cobra). Hopefully they'll stick to the red checked paint at the top of the supports as well.

Quick update via carowinds twitter page. Cobra is almost done. The station is now being painted and as you can see the demolition to create the concrete pad for the Troika, Do-Si-Do, is underway as well.

Also, I just wanted to add that after years of keeping my old 40" 1080p TV, I finally took the plunge and picked up a black Friday 60" 4k Smart TV. The first thing I watched on it, you ask? Fury 325 POV on Youtube.

People freak out way too much about tornado warnings, but if the entire city of Charlotte is under a tornado warning and you want to be concerned about something, Hurler should be at the bottom of your list.

 

Your list of priorities should be something like...

 

1) Fury 325

2) The 800,000 people in harms way and the potential catastrophic damage and loss of life.

3) Afterburn

4) The wing place at the Epicentre

 

etc.

Those are the correct priorities.

 

But yeah, living in Tornado Alley, where we have weekly tornado warnings all summer, sometimes even multiple times a week, these things aren't nearly as scary as people seem to think. Most of the time they don't actually touch down, and when they do, the area of effect is very small. A tornado can destroy one building while missing the adjacent one entirely. Once every few years there will be one a mile wide, like the one that leveled half of Joplin a few years ago (that's a city of about 100,000 on the border of Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas). But those are very rare indeed.

I had a great time at Carowinds this year during my first ever visit. Check out my video blog! Any comments about it would be appreciated.

 

Great video! It's really funny to me though how Cedar Point employees can't say anything bad about anything at a Cedar Fair park though. It's funny watching you try to restrain yourself when giving a review of the kiddy hang and bang.
