Photo TR: Paramount's Carowinds Pre Season!

Postby jarmor » Sun Mar 13, 2005 9:04 pm

Today was filming for the B-roll for media day (wed) and also a dry run day. The best thing about it is that they invited the friends and family of the employees to participate in the dry run! All I have to say is PKI you better use the "voted best kids area" til the cows come home because I do forsee a change!
I think the park is being slick dubbing nick central as a "kids area" With rides like the flume, scooby the flyers, rocket power and the flying dutchman's revenge (unbelievable ride im not gonna spoil it for you guys!). I think I have found my fav section of the park. I was able to learn how to "snap" on my first go 'round and I think im hooked! I think im gonna have to be scraped off of the flyers and flying dutchman!

I really, REALLY want to thank the park for being so kind and open to us and let us "sample" the goods and give us all the latest. Even had a chance to talk to Dale Kaetzel who was very personable and wants us to "spread the word!" (which I am gonna do, trust me!". Natividad & Scott who are like our "fairly odd parents" always seems to come thru and renews all of our faith in carowinds and keeps the turnstiles turning!! They better becareful im gonna get use to comming to the park when its pratically empty!!

But other than that it was a great day and a pretty large crowd for the 3 hours it was open to the public!

Oh yeah, PKI thanks for the flyers and PCW thanks for the seastorm!

ANTI-SNAPPING DEVICE!!! Please do explain thanks. I hope they still snap like they did at PKI. I'll be down there next weekend. I hope that I am not disappointed.

I was just kidding about the anti-snapping device lol lol. It has a real good speed to it that made snapping very easy! Another thing that was very noticable was the characters. They were soo animated (as if they weren't before). Today they were dancing and playing w/ the guest! I tip my hat to anyone who is a character in the park because we generally dont give them the credit they are owed (unless its a groping tiger :P )
