  1. Looks like Swing-A-Round and Carousel found a new home at Fun Spot Atlanta!
  2. https://www.cedarpoint.com/tickets-passes/fast-lane Looks like Valravn and GateKeeper were both bumped from the Fast Lane Plus list in favor of Millennium Force.
  3. I actually just rode Copperhead Strike on Saturday! What a fun ride; it's a great addition to Carowinds. People aren't kidding when they talk about the hangtime on it, it's excellent, as are the launches. It's definitely not as intense as Maverick, but a ride doesn't have to be intense to be fun! I honestly feel like Copperhead has more airtime pops on it than on Fury. The theming is also great; I'm glad to see Cedar Fair stepping up and going all out with it. Strike Squad!
  4. Yeah, I've started to have a mindset like this. It seems like most of the time, the lines are average enough where you don't really need FLP; it is helpful during Halloween Haunt, though. My friends wanted to get it because this would probably be our one time at Carowinds for a while, but I don't feel like dropping 80 bucks if I don't need it. It is supposed to be 78 or so, but they were also calling for storms in the area. I guess we won't know what the weather looks like until we head down to Charlotte.
  5. Hi all, just replying back to this thread with another question. We are still going on our trip; however, the forecast says there will be rain all day Saturday. My friends have been discussing buying FLP, but I want to hold off on it until we get to the park. I should be fine waiting until then, right? I really don't think it's going to sell out and I'm not even sure if we'll need it. The weather should also keep the crowds away, correct? I've been to KI on a rainy day and it was dead the entire day. I assume the same applies to Carowinds, even on a Saturday?
  6. Sounds really good! Brisket and mac and cheese is always a good choice. We'll probably eat at Harmony Hall while we're there, based on all the people recommending it. The Skytower sounds fun. I skipped out on the one at SeaWorld Orlando last time I went and I never had the chance to ride the Cedar Point one, so I'll bring it up to my friends. Fury, Fury, Fury! My 50th credit! Intimidator or Copperhead will be my 49th. Copperhead will probably be our first ride there, just so we can avoid the lines. Thank you! Sounds like you had a great trip, too! Culvers sounds really goo
  7. I just looked up Cookout and it looks awesome! I'll suggest it to my friends. Harmony Hall also seems to be a pretty popular response in the thread. Mountain Gliders looks like a lot of fun! I'll definitely try those two out. We're hoping the weather is nice; nobody wants to ride Fury in the rain (I've done it on MF before and don't want to relive that experience anytime soon). The Fast Lane Plus price is not that bad either! We'll probably get it no matter what, just so we can ride everything. I'll pass the info about Copperhead on to my friends. I'm really, really hoping it's ope
  8. My friends and I are heading to Carowinds in about a week. We're all super excited, but this will be our first time there - I think it'll also be all of our first times in the Charlotte area. We will only be going to Carowinds on Saturday and driving on both Friday and Sunday afternoons, just to give an idea of how long we'll be in the area for. I know some of you have been to Carowinds before, so I thought it would be a good idea to ask you all some questions we have. 1. What is a must-eat restaurant in Charlotte? My friends want to go to chain restaurants we have up north (we are current
  9. Thanks for the review! My friends and I are heading out to Carowinds in about a week and a half. Looks like it'll be a fantastic park!
