I mean, I could walk on basically everything, we got right on Drop Tower, Intimidator, Thunder Road, and The Vortex~
I'm very impressed, because usually Carowinds is crowded on Sunday due to people letting out of Church.
Anyways, who's excited for SCarowinds?!
I know I am! I'll definitely be doing a review~


Probably because everyone was evacuated and left town??

charlotte is no where near the coast... why would it have been evacuated? it may have rained a bit, but there was no hurricane in charlotte :?r

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Irene was a pretty big storm,I mean BGW,KD,SFA & SFGRADV all shut down for the duration(just to name a few parks) & KD as well as SFA are nowhere near the coast.

^Damage was actually worse in central Virginia than it was closer to the coast, too. So, I can understand people being cautious on the NC-SC border.

That is where I was going with my original comment. Not only that, but with everyone watching the storm, I doubt travelling to an amusement park was anywhere close to being on their mind. Us junkies on the other hand, this is the kind of stuff to look for and plan around that!!!! Has anyone ever went to SFA when the Redskins/Ravens had a home game together...place is dead!

yeah but irene hit land at the outerbanks, which are farther north than carowinds is. I can see why those parks would shut down but charlotte only got the outskirts of the storm. i live just south of charlotte and we were both affected by Irene about the same. Just some rain.

^Was there a reason you needed to bump a dormant thread just to share that?
