Well...looks like I missed out on this pfun :cry:

Spinning, non-spinning, forking, whisking, stirring, fonduing...I don't care! I'm looking forward to this announcement!

Eh, fonduing's more work than it's worth. You need a couple of Swedes to help, and it just gets messy.

Well, Mack is German so I guess this won't be fonduing then.

Oh well, forking it is!

"Stir completely around the pot" sounds an awful lot like loops that wrap around other stretches of track.

Stopped at Carowinds yesterday with hubby as we continue our 10 year 10 day 10 park trip. I have to say I'm. It sure if it's due to holiday world being so clean and friendly but felt as though the workers were less then enthusiastic. The park was clean enough but didn't feel as clean as holiday world. We really enjoyed Fury rode it 5x did the the other coasters at least once but Fury was our favorite. Defintally didnt enjoy the lunch but really enjoyed the rita custard wow was that what we needed to hit the spot on the hot day. Short lines for our visit that was nice. Hubby did not like that we couldn't wait for front or back on a few rides being they were slow he thought they should of allowed it. We did get upset as at one point a ride operator let three people come up from behind the line as she said they got "lost" but obviously were friends. All in all a nice fun day.

Did you ask? I have found at a lot of parks if you ask, nicely, for a row then they are usually accommodating.

I think some people had already ferreted out this information, but Carowinds officially announced on Twitter that their "largest announcement in history" will be on August 30th. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what they have in store for this new coaster, because if it's at all close to as good as I've heard Helix is, it'll really solidify Carowinds' place as a destination park in the South! (And this, coming from somebody who holds the park in rather lackluster regard - Fury excepted, of course!)

I wonder if they're going to announce anything else besides the new coaster. I know "largest announcement in history" shouldn't be taken too literally, but with Fury's huge announcement to live up to, I can't help but wonder if there is something else (small, of course) in addition to the coaster. Kinda like how Canada's Wonderland announced Winterfest in addition to Yukon Striker, although this park already has Winterfest.

Can't wait!
