Caroline Cyclone (CW) new trains. (Thanks, Vortex!)


Recommended Posts

The legacy lives on at Carowinds.

The two trains on Carolina Cyclone will have new bodies next year, made possible by the closure of Vortex at Kings Island.

That article was so nice to read!  You can tell they really kept The Vortex fans in mind!  I still need to get to Carowinds to ride Carolina Cyclone and Fury!!

I have never been to Carowinds and this is finally pushing me to make my first trip! I can't wait to pay those two Vortex trains a visit. It will be so cool for the same trains that gave my very last Vortex rides to give my very first Carolina Cyclone rides!

Carowinds is an awesome park. I really like it.

For anyone curious, the third train is going to Canada’s Wonderland for Dragon Fyre.

I just wonder how are they using the train?  Is it going to be stripped for parts, put into a rotation with the other trains?

I’m not sure, all I was told was that two trains would be sent to Carowinds and one train to Canada’s Wonderland.

Not going to lie, once Carolina Cyclone or Dragon Fyre reaches the end of its service life, I would love for the old trains to be repainted to their original colors and shipped back to Kings Island to put on display somewhere in the park. On the other hand, this would probably be unnecessary to invest money in, so it probably will never happen.
