After my flight was delayed 2 hours, I arrived at the park around 7:30. Rain and other bad weather had driven everyone else out so that most everything was a walk-on or a cycle wait.
Scorecard:
Intimidator 2x
Fury 2x
Drop Tower 1x
Carolina Cyclone 1x
Vortex 1x
Carolina Goldrusher 1x
Flying Cobras 1x
Boo Blasters 1x
Afterburn 2x
Nighthawk 1x
Intimidator 1x
Fury 3x

Rather impressive for only 2.5 hours.

Top Wood: Outlaw Run
Top Steel: Millennium Force

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Is this thing going to star with a barrel roll out of the station?

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Damn! That is impressive. I was questioning why you only rode fury a couple times until I saw the last part of your post. Well played. First time at the park?

^It was my first time at the park and I just got back from the trip. Park closed early the past 2 days because of severe inclement weather. The forecast made me think that I would have very little time to ride everything I wanted to at the park over 2 and a half days. So yeah, I had to leave, but once I got on most everything, I had to go back to Fury. I'm glad the last ride I got at the park on this trip was on Fury.

^Great news! Hopefully we'll see some sort of vertical construction soon (if there hasn't been any yet). We don't know the color of the track yet... right?

I'm going to ditto this... that's crazy you were able to hit up that many rides in such a short amount of time. Must have been walking speedily!

^ I’m going to assume with the trend CF is doing track will be burnt orange or rust brown like Valraven, RailBlazer and CW new dive coaster. Track should be showing up too by end of week. As for vertical all we have are 6 tall footers. Also we can tell where the gliders will be moved too which is curled here. Unless that’s a turnaround into the station idk.

I'm very excited to see this project unravel. Anything remotely similar to Icon or Helix or even smaller scale like Manta will get an A+ in my book!
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
