Nahhh, Carowinds is just having fun teasing all the usual suspects. It's still probably going to be Copperhead Strike.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I hope I'm not turning this thread into the Kings Dominion thread by asking this, but what is the loose article/platform/bin/fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo situation at the park? Specifically Fury and Nighthawk. Are there any rides that glasses cannot be worn on even with a strap?

Also, does the park sell a decent Afterburn hat?

The only ride that doesn't have bins is Fury, I wear my glasses on everything and I have no straps.

Took a trip to the park yesterday before heading back to California. Park wasn't that busy and was able to get on everything I wanted to! The teasers on the construction wall look great and I can't wait to see what the park gets! Couple of construction shots below, really not a lot has changed, just rebar, and what looks like the makings for footers are all over the site.

Also got to see crews take a train out of operations on Fury, sounded like their was something stuck on the bottom of the train. Ended up taking that train off (believe it was train 3) and put train 1 onto the track. Always fun getting to see the transfer track in operations and how the park can quickly fix an issue like this!

So is Fury an "I need to rent a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo" scenario, or an "I can toss my stuff onto the platform" scenario?
