We buy season passes every year because our boys enjoy the rides and water park. We only go a few times a year though.

I haven't been to Carowinds in over 20 years. Don't think I've been back since graduation night in '89.

 

Is HannaBarbara land still there. I would make it a point to ride the Scooby-Doo rollercoaster and the gold rush? And the oaken bucket that was spun in the ground.

 

Damn is ThunderRoad still there, I thought it was going to collapse the last time I rode it.  All I heard was tracks going rickety-rack...rickety-rack.....

I'd say Afterburn, Intimidator, Nighthawk, and Carolina Goldrush are the legitimate roller coasters there.

On a side note, it was funny to see a group of thugs get arrested there for attempting to steal stuffed animals.
