I'd love to get back to SFOG some day. I haven't been there since 2003.

It’s relentless too. Especially the ejector air on the back half over the bunny hills

It’s brilliant

Day three was a mostly full day stop at Carowinds! We arrived around 3pm and had 7 hours until the park closed at 10pm with an amazing ERT session on Fury 325 at night! We love our newer format of doing TPR tours because when you only have 34 people and a ride as massive as Fury, you can do things like keep one train empty for doing "solo rides" which is exactly what we did, and if you've ever been by yourself, at night, on a massive ride like Fury, it makes the experience even more incredible!

We had an amazing day at Carowinds, and here's a few photos & videos from our visit...

Image
Look out Carowinds! TPR is here!

I need to get down to ride Fury 325, although a night solo ride must have been a very unique and (likely) once in a lifetime experience for most people!
