Pssst.. New Coaster at Carowinds for 2019

Recommended Posts

shhh its a secret.  A huge 5 acre clearing has already begun on the old site of White Water Falls.  Permit has named it "Project Alpha 2019".  Early indications point to a wooden coaster from footer markings.

Be hard to beat Fury. But I'll give it a shot. Thunder Road was a cool wooden coaster except that it would beat you to death, lol. My daughters, grandkids, and I are roller coaster junkies.

tbf it would take one of the baddest launch coasters on the planet to top fury.  i'm not talking top thrill dragster or kingda ka, but a monster version of the incredible hulk or thunderbird.

topping fury is borderline unrealistic, but it could happen in the future

i'd be happy with a sweet ass RMC

Wait, they got rid of white water falls!?!?! WTF. And your pic includes the wave pool... did they get rid of that too!? God damnit, you move away from charlotte for a few years and they trash your childhood memories to poo.

Next thing you know, they'll get rid of Hanna-Barbera Land.

at the beginning of the day and end of day you can pretty much just ride the best rides back to back , mid day is when the waits usually happen

fury is a people eater too, and the highest capacity coaster in the park.  first night it opened, the line stretched through the entire queue, and then back around a makeshift wall behind rip roaring rapids, and it still only took about 45 minutes to an hour to get through the line.

if you go on a weds, you can pretty much ride it like that all day long.

no Carowinds has 2 wave pools.  They got rid of the BS, peace and quiet kiddie pool no one used.  Carolina Harbor has been redone, it does not need this waste of space.  And not sure if you are being serious, but Hana Barbera has been gone for some time and is now Camp Snoopy.

Oh, I see the difference in the pools now on the map. I haven't been in probably 10 years; I'll probably give it another year or two until my kid is big enough to ride the kiddie rides.

I wasn't being serious about Hanna Barbera - I think it was rebranded when Paramount took over - I do miss it though, those characters were the best and Smurf Island was baller for 5 year old me.

Fun story, when I was like 4, I went on the scooby doo wooden coaster with my mom and climbed out of the car mid-ride and into another car - she was stuck in the car by the restraints and couldnt get me so the people in the other car had to hold on to me until the ride was over.

Agree Fury is awesome, still like the Intimidator and Afterburn as well.  They have a shet load of good coasters out there.

One to consider avoiding would be Vortex if you still want to have kids.  :poison:

How so?

Let's just throw 20 rollercoaster in a park.  Carowinds used to have a character now all it is rollercoasters and everything else has been stripped away.
