3 minutes and 33 seconds to ride, eh?

Amazingly precise timing? Or clever marketing?

Regardless, good to see Carowinds has been busy these past few years. What is this, three new coasters (Nighthawk, Carolina Cobra, Intimidator) within the past few years? Looking forward to riding this one.

Carolina Cobra just opened this year. Nighthawk used to be the Borg Assimilator. Haven't ridden the Cobra yet, but if you've never lain down on a rollercoaster, go ride Nighthawk.

Looks just like Apollo's Chariot at Busch Gardens just a little higher. I'm very mildly afraid of heights, no more than the average person I'd say, but that ride was the only thing I've gone on where I got that 'oh poo' feeling. I haven't been to carowinds in years but I'll go to ride that.



That's exactly what I thought when I saw it....definitely Apollo's chariot. It's been a very long time since I went to Busch Gardens though so I can't remember how high or long that one is.

My cell phone came out of my pocket on the Nighthawk (still liked it as the Borg best - loved the sound effects as you walked around it) a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was a goner, but they found it all beat up. Back and battery gone, but when I put my son's battery in, it turned on and the LCD screens were intact. My menus were all messed up too because the guts of the phone had shifted, but my son took my phone apart and fixed that. Got a new battery and cover and it's good as new....with lots of gouges in the plastic case.

And this one is too massive to just link to the image so you'll have to click it:

This coaster is gonna make Apollo's Chariot look like Scooby Doo. The reason they seem so similar is they are both hypercoasters designed by Bollinger and Mabillard. The major difference is the lack of trim brakes, the new elements in the layout and the theater seating on the trains. Its faster, longer, taller, and its gonna have more air.

Best thing that's ever happened to lil ol' Carowinds if you ask me.

I think our new coaster would easily be the best of all B&M hypers if the original plans had been carried out- that is- the first drop would have been steeper- around 80+ degrees- and the turn up to the micro-brake would have been a tight helix instead of just a turn...
