Sounds good to me. I'm going solo as my friends had something at the last minute that's preventing them from going.

So nice to see Carowinds' old swings still there.

Also nice to see a bunch of water in a former Paramount Park. Unlike a certain park on a state line, somewhere in oh say, the Carolinas.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Would be cool if the Waterpark could get those drop floor slides. Just saying.

It's ok, I had to cut my visit short anyways.



So I have a mini trip report from Tuesday.


When I arrived at the park I saw an abundance of school busses (ugh). Luckily the park was pretty empty besides the hoards of school kids in the park. My first order of business was a ride on Goldstriker and after a 45 minute wait I was on. It was just as a I remembered, fast paced with pops of air throughout. It seems that they removed all the graffiti in the queue aside from the handrails.

After I went and processed my season pass, I was pleased to see they now have computers to put your information in the system instead of filling out little cards.

I only spent a few hours in the park but managed 3 rides on Goldstriker, I could have gotten more but I had to leave.

Delirium was down for the day and HMB Endeavor was as well. It seems that the hydraulics that lower the platform for Delirium were being worked on.

And my courtesy ride on The Demon was strangely smooth.


Now on to the few pics I took

Bet you've never seen a picture like this one

Platform is down and angled. My guess is the hydraulics.

I close out my report with a *sigh*

I was just there yesterday. Endeavor was back up and running, but Delirium was still down. I was looking forward to riding that, but hopefully I'll get it later this summer.

It was my first visit at the park and I really enjoyed it. The park has an awesome one-two punch in Flight Deck and Gold Striker. Then I really enjoyed the overall atmosphere of the park. Crowds were manageable and well-behaved and the park was exceptionally clean. I have quite a few photos to upload later this week.

Looks like I may have to go make a visit and get a ride in (or two)!
Tigga, please!

Something is going on behind the scenes:

And no, Centurion can't be the name....that trademark got suspended.

I think that this is the on-going project refurbishing the picnic pavilion, which will include a new entrance directly in to the pavilion area from the parking lot.

"Centurion" is a name registered by Cedar Fair, allegedly for a future attraction at a park in the chain.
