Wow, my home park certainly has changed a bit since its glory days. While there have certainly been a lot of improvements, removing White Lightnin' and the Sternwheeler are unforgivable crimes ... especially considering their "replacements."
Visiting the park for the 1st time this year, this was an interesting take. The Powder Keg and White Lightnin' looked awesome and it's always interesting to see how many rides and attractions change over the years.
Other than Intimidator, I think I would take the park as it was then over how it is now.
Here is a Carowinds update featuring a look at park map & guide through the years. You can see how the park did some changing from 1979 to 1990. I have to agree that the parks biggest mistake was the removal of White LIghtnin for that lame wave pool.
