  1. Carowinds started selling those before they close Thunder Road and they still sell them today. CoasterDynamix said they were only doing one run of the Thunder Road one.....
  2. No, it wasn’t https://themeparkuniversity.com/theme-parks-101/lego-company-set-to-own-legoland-parks-merlin-entertainments/
  3. Merlin was bought by LEGO.... Cedar Fair not issuing a statement is a better sign that the rumor is false than coming out and saying it is false.
  4. Interesting observation.... Next season KI’s oldest steel coaster will be Adventure Express built in 1991.... Oldest wooden coasters Racer and Woodstock Express from 1972.... But weren’t steel coaster supposed to be cheaper to maintain?
  5. Carowinds removed Thunder Road in 2015, the same year Fury 325 was added. A water park expansion filled part of the spot then Copperhead Strike filled a another small chuck of Thunder Road’s spot. Vortex’s case is different since it isn’t being removed for waterpark. I hope KI once again saves the station and reuses it.
  6. I personally feel like this is just a PR spin. The policies aren’t new, they are just communicating more. I guess it is a start but given the crowds that SCarowinds attracts I don’t believe that it will be effective. I also believe that the “improvements that the guests can’t see.” Is just a buff. It is kind of a former workplace of mine saying they have cameras in the parking but when something actually happen in the parking lot they came asking us to report anything we knew. We later discovered there were no cameras btw.
  7. Looks like the Go Gator is a Gone Gator now!
  8. When my wife was 6 months pregnant we went to Tweetsie Railroad and the local County Fair, she rode anything and everything she wanted. The Zipper, Round-Up, Tornado, Musik Express, Chairlift, Skycoaster. 11 years later and the only side effects was the child is a coaster enthusiast and isn’t scared of any ride at Carowinds.
  9. Copperhead Strike is near the parking lot but not next to it. There is maintenance areas surrounding parts of the ride and the parking lot butts up against those. I haven’t been to Carowinds this season to see for my self but from POV videos it looks like the Waterpark bathrooms are close to the second launch. I couldn’t afford to renew my Carowinds season pass this season because I need a new vehicle, kinda sucks I actually have a good vehicle and can afford to go no where. I am hoping to get a visit to Carowinds at the end of summer.
  10. That is inaccurate, It was designed by Intamin. Carowinds built the original rafts in house that were used until 1983 when Intamin rafts replaced the original rafts that had design flaws. Intamin was unable to supply rafts in time for 1982 so Carowinds made their own 8 passenger rafts.
