Carowinds Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Man...I would have rather it be anything other than this. I guess competition isnt what the park is into because im sure it would have been cheaper to get a spinning coaster like spinning dragons in that spot than the boomerang, but then people would complain about another kiddy coaster lol. Needless to say im not shocked about this at all with the record of the park nothing ceases to amaze me anymore.

I'm just happy CF is giving carowinds something. They could easily just close the park or give us nothing at all so any coaster is a good move for a park with not alot to do.

 

This is also a way of getting a free coaster to save more money for the big one in 2010.

 

If you don't like what the park is doing then by all means don't go.

 

Sad thing is as much as everyone complains i'd be willing to put money on everyone being at the park at some point next year and riding Head Spin.

 

You know it's true.

 

Carowinds should not be worried about the competition. It has not effected the park the last 10 years or ever imo and will not effect the park 10 years down then road. Even with HRP, KD & SFoG Carowinds seems to do a good job breaking attendance records every year by adding kiddie rides and water park expansions so why change a good thing.

 

And to all those ungreatfull people over at CC crying and fussing about the coaster just get over it. please go visit another park that will fulfill your needs. Shorter lines for me when i go next year.

 

Just saying if carowinds annoucnes a huge hyper in 2010 every single one of you will be back on the other side of the fence praising CF and saying what a wonderful job they are doing.

 

Thankfully i don't run Carowinds cause if i did i would just put in small used coasters every year so the the babies won't buy a SP.

 

 

I think that pretty much covers it.

When are relocated coasters free? Still have to pay to move it, pay to set it back up, pay for landscaping.

Yeah thats a smart thing to say if you didnt get fired and still worked for the park...

How much money are you willing to loose? You dont see me running to the new pool.

The people thought the same things in new orleans about the levy's...Alot of parks are doing a broader range of advertising now. Carowinds is maintaining right now.

 

And to all those ungreatfull people over at CC crying and fussing about the coaster just get over it. please go visit another park that will fulfill your needs. Shorter lines for me when i go next year.

Why not go over to CC and tell them that...Oh yeah I forgot about your little ban issue. But it looks like you are still lurking...pressing the reply button to see if it works again for you.

Again how much money do you have to loose? No one is begging for a hyper coaster either. At the most people would like to see more flat rides and waterslides at carowinds.

 

Thankfully i don't run Carowinds cause if i did i would just put in small used coasters every year so the the babies won't buy a SP.

And the sad thing about it is you are being honest. See thats the kinda behavior that got you fired in the first place. Or are you trying to play suck up to get your job back?

 

 

I think that pretty much covers it.

Absolutely!

Nope didn't get fired but if you want to keep telling yourself that then i'm fine with that and no i never plan to work for carowinds again cause i would have to deal with people like you not to mention the dumb people running the departments at Carowinds.

 

I'm perfectly happy where i am now!

QueenCityBoy..... just ignore what some people say. You unfortunately cannot please everybody. In my opinion your the most helpful person on this forum because you've actually worked there and have been there for past projects. You know from past experiences just how long things can take to happen.

And by the way, i really don't care if they change Nighthawks color scheme. I would be happy with green and black just as long as they repaint it for the first time since they got it.(But purple and black would look really cool )

I really like this addition. It gives me one more reason to not get excited about a visit to Carowinds. I mean, if they put in something good, then I'd actually have to consider making a trip.....and with gas the way it is, I thank you, Cedar Fair.

 

Eh, maybe if they eventually add something besides a good B&M invert, it'll inspire me to get there one day. That is, if it happens before 2012.

god, you guys are such babies. You seem to miss the point. BOOMERANGS ARE FUN FOR THE LOVE OF FUCKING GOD. THEY ARE FUN. Who cares how old or used they are, if you ride a boomerang, you'll have fun. Plus, Head Spin is one of the smoother boomerangs out there anyways. Get over it and just realise this is a nice addition...jesus...we knew this was coming anyways.

Oh, that's right. I forgot my opinions are flawed. Thanks for reminding me. I rode that boomerang, and I DIDN'T HAVE FUN. But then again, I was probably mistaken about that too. Man, I'm so confused these days.

I agree with Sushirocks13,just ignore it & don't let it get to you....the same thing has been going on over in the SFA discussion thread with me being caught in the middle of it over how the park is treated,or should I say mistreated.

You need some advice on sarcasm...

On another note let's all just forget about the rumor going around that Cedar Fair is dumping Nickelodeon. just think of the money they would have to spend re-themeing everything at all para-parks not to mention the millions in sales they would loose yearly.

 

Oh..... Of course the fact that they just completely re-themed camp Snoopy into Nickelodeon Universe.

 

Now why would they do that if they were planning on dumping Nick in the next year or two.

 

Now i could see universal dumping Nick since that contract is up either this year or next & people don't really go to Universal for Nick. Not with the Nick Hotel down the road but thats a different topic.

Enthusiast wise, it's a lovely addition.

 

GP wise, the eternal gimmick of "You'll loop 3 times forwards and 3 TIMES BACKWARDS!" will be sure to pull in some guests for the 2009 season. Enough said.

 

yep.... Not to mention the park will advertise it as the tallest coaster in the park which the GP will eat up.

 

I could however see some people upset when they go back and FSS is gone.

Even though it may look like they still run the park due to all the concrete, Cedar Fair doesn't run Nick Universe anymore.

HA HA HA and thats coming from the person who seems to "know all" about cedar fair and have these mysterious moles lurking in the offices just dieing to give you every tidbit they can. Looks like they left one small one out.

I have contributed plenty but dont wanna make the carowinds fanboys upset for having a different opinion. I mean its not like im talking about cedar fair still owning nick universe or something. I mean what kinda sense does that make!

 

Am I happy about this coaster, no. I think this would be something great for a small family owned park but not for a park as big as carowinds.

Something tells me there are a few million others that don't know who owns Nick Universe.

 

Who cares?

 

If it makes you happy i'll look into who owns what from now on.

 

 

> a few hours later..

 

Oops... I seem to be a little stuck already. i have no idea who owns:

 

Bushkill Park..... Oh wait..... That must be the guy who plans to kill Bush right?

 

Kids 'N Action ( this would be the park owned by pedifiles right?)

 

Blackbeard's Cave (blackbeard is alive and well running this park right?)

 

Pocono Play

Dutch Wonderland

Bowcraft Playland

Blue Diamond Park

Keansburg Amusement Park

Adventurers Family Entertainment Center

Casino Pier Seaside Heights

Funtown Pier Seaside Park

Krazy City

 

.........................can someone help me?

^ yeah, really. What did that have to do with the topic? besides, most of them are probably privately owned. As for headspin going to carowinds, I could really care less. Am I happy about CF's decision, no, never would I think that a boomerang would be a wise decision for a park as big as Carowinds. I personally think that they are making an unwise decision. Will I still go to the park? yes, of course I will go there plenty of times. Will I cry and whine if carowinds does not get a major coaster next year? certainly not. however, I believe it is in the best interest of the park to add either a coaster, or some new flats sometime soon to keep attendance up.
