So we went to Taste of Carowinds yesterday since we’re visiting the in-laws who live ten minutes away. Before going I was confused as to why this event was even a thing and after going I’m infini

I don’t think you get what I’m saying at all.  As a fan, I’m really glad they opened Carowinds for like a month even though this event was really stupid because I got to ride two coasters and I w

Probably. It’s a Christmas tradition.

Carowinds is beginning to tease their 2012 addition. Their website has this as an alternating picture.

 

 

Scanning the code, will lead you to this.

 

 

Any ideas how the two could be connected?

Well I googled "Mouthless mutters" and found it to be from this riddle from The Hobbit:

 

"Voiceless it cries wingless flutters toothless bites mouthless mutters?"

 

The answer to the riddle is, The Wind. So maybe a Windseeker for Carowinds?

Next to the code is also a series of writings/drawings, including "O&W Wright" (Wright Brothers), "Flying Machine", and "Application Filed March 23rd, 1903". (The day the Wright Brothers filed their patent)

 

Definitely a more cryptic approach to teasing, but I'm curious as to where all this will lead!

Windseeker since carowinds already has a vekoma flyer.

 

Turns out I may be able to visit carowinds since we've got some family business to take care of down there.

^Wow, 61 acres is quite a chunk of property. Wonder if it's the area behind Boomerang Bay or the area behind Hurler. Won't be surprised if they decide to do a Castaway Bay type resort hotel since they already have the campground or maybe a relocation of the water park.

This is definitely the riddle it is refering to. After playing with the web address, you will see there are 3 others that all confirm this riddle. So the answer is WIND.

Overall Carowinds is one of the more enjoyable parks out there. Being a Disney nut I need to be weened off the Disney Crack pipe and ride some more thrilling things out there. Carowinds offers a lot of different coasters and was enjoyable for something new. It was also convenient since I attend college in North Carolina.

 

Found it ironic however that at the Entrance to carowinds i found a Magic Kingdom park map stuck to my foot. It follows me...

This is great news for the expansion of the park and the new ride addition coming next year! And from the clues, I would definitely say windseeker also. Although I was really hoping for a giant frisbee.

With Carowinds being my home park, The 61 acres I think they are talking about would be the area back of the hurler, adjacent to the campground, around to where the Rv's and buses park. Interesting to see how they will expand. Definitely pumped up about it!

I too enjoy Carowinds especially Intimidator! Check the bottom of your foot. That may not be the only thing stuck to it.

Haven't done a Windseeker yet, going to CP next month and am looking forward to it. These clues are very interesting, if it is definitely an argument between a giant frisbee or a Windseeker, regardless of what it is, is a win for Carowinds. Went there last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, plus with this new 61 acre purchase towards the back who knows what more great things we will be seeing from them!

Went to carowinds today & enjoyed it for the most part.

 

Rode intimidator twice,afterburn twice,thunder road both sides(left was horrid),caroline cobra once,gold rusher once,vortex once & scream weaver once.The place we're staying at is right near the park so getting there wasn't hard.Vortex was WORSE than shockwave @ KD but afterburn kicked some butt(too bad the photo booth wasn't open) & KD so needs a B&M invert as a result.

 

All in all carwoinds is a pretty good park,in some ways better than KD but I have to say KD's giga does outdo their B&M even though it was a great ride & one I'd like to have nearby....good thing I got my intimidator ride photo though.

Ok guys, I'm going to Carowinds on the 25th or 26th. Could you guys give me a plan for the day, like what to do first and what has long lines and stuff? I have been there before but I never really had a plan. Thanks guys!

 

Based on my weekday experience I'd start out with Afterburn & Intimidator first,most other rides in the park are walk ons until the waterpark closes for the day.
