  1. Basically it was this car in black with a tan interior and it had a full color original "Beast" logo applied (or painted) on the hood. It was pretty much like what you would see on the late 70's and early 80's Firebird Trans Am's with the firebreathing chicken on the hood. Other than that, these cars had NOTHING in common except they were both GM products. I'm sure someone (to this day) is kicking themselves in the rear for not using a 1979 Camaro Z28 or Corvette for those Beast cars. They would have been much more collectible.
  2. ****Update**** I finally found something referencing the '79 Beast Chevy Chevettes from Newspapers.com.....(No pics of the actual car however) Hopefully, KIghostguy will find this useful for the book. Source: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/28065631/beast-chevette/
  3. Carowind's fans would like a word.
  4. Classic postcard pic from 2018.
  5. Anyone else bothered by how much taller DB looks compared to Orion on the Weatherbug cam? I would be guessing it's because of the elevation or something.
  6. Did I read somewhere months ago that Orion would receive the Yukon Striker automated bin system?
  7. Correct BEAST NR.... Here is the vid for Fury's last piece and you can see the all the media folks in the upper left hand corner on the ground. ***Fun Fact, Fury 325's last piece was installed on Jan 30 2015. Source: Carowinds
  8. So...graduated from Kings High School 1979 (Beast opening year) and for our Grad Night was had Hall & Oates & Chic (Nile Rodgers). Yes, we had LOTS of Beast night rides. IIRC, the park stayed open until 2:00 am so you can bet we took advantage of it.
  9. It ceases to amaze me how dark it is on the webcam. Like the track that they are currently installing is blending in with the tree line SO much that it is impossible to see the actual track piece being attached. Very frustrating
  10. Does anyone think that the spine should have been a separate/different color like Fury 325? I think that should be a signature on B&M Giga's to separate them from the Hypers etc.
  11. One would think that the winds were so strong at that height that the rain drops would be gone in a matter of minutes, yet it has been on there for well over 2 hours. Unless of course there is no wind today!!
  12. Just an observation from the webcam...does it look like the walk back to Orion from the midway will be the same distance as it is from AZ to The Bat? I know Firehawk's entrance queue was right there by the lockers, but from the webcam view, it looks as if Orion's (actual first) entrance queue will be a good ways back there. Am I wrong on my visual measurements?
  13. Hopefully KI will document this and create a "Dreams to Screams" video a la Fury325.
  14. Is that one of The Vortex trains on the lift?
