Checked into our hotel literally across the street from Six Flags Over Georgia with a nice view of Goliath from our room.
Today was a great day at Carowinds. It was actually the most crowded I've ever seen it but still, Fury and Intimidator were 15 minutes or less. Everything else was actually slightly longer (waited 30 minutes for Goldrusher!!!!!) than we're used to but it was still a fun day.
We mostly focused on our favorites since we really only had today at Carowinds thanks to a storm washing us out on Monday night. No Nighthawk, Cobra, Vortex, Etc this trip.
Fury is still just amazing. Definitely a top 5 coaster.
Intimidator was way better than I remember it last year. The trims didn't seem as heavy and it's right next to Diamondback, which I adore, in my rankings.
Afterburn is also still really fun. Very smooth and forceful, and I really love the new mist affect in the bottom of the batwing.
Construction is moving right along on next year's project. Looked like they were beginning to put in some footers. Whatever it ends up being, I'm sure Mack is gonna knock it out of the park.
Operations outside of the big 3 were meh but friendly workers.
We didn't eat outside of Harmony Hall for any of our 3 meals. The selection in there is great and all very very tasty.
So all in all, even through it was an abbreviated trip to Carowinds (last year we spent 3 days there) it was a lot of fun. On to Six Flags Over Georgia tomorrow which is a new park for us!
Scorecard for the day:
Carolina Cyclone 1x
Drop Tower 1x
Carolina Goldrusher 1x
Unfortunately the pictures don't want to upload tonight... I guess I'll try tomorrow along with the six flags pictures. Ugh. Technology.
I had a few cool pictures of the storm from monday I was excited to share too. Oh well.
