Carowinds - the dreaded line question ... but not!

Saturday, August 6, 2005 11:13 AM
Ok, I'm not going to ask if lines are going to be long on a certain day, I'm going to a major park on a Saturday, I know they're going to be long. My question is more of a "local flavor" type thing ...

At Paramount Carowinds, does a "long" line mean Cedar Point long, i.e. - 2 hours for major rides, 1 hour for mid rides, 30 min for small rides, or Kennywood long, i.e. - 45 minutes for major rides, 20 minutes for mid rides, 5 min for small rides?

Perhaps this is something that could be a bit of a searchable database in the new version? Get locals to give their descriptions of what a "long line" means at their park, might help to alleviate some of the "how long are lines going to be" questions (like this one)

Just a thought. Thanks guys.

I am a local, living 4 miles from Carowinds and go there frequently. On any given Saturday you should never have a 2 hour wait for anything. Last year BORG had a waiting time on Saturday's for approx. 1 hour (give or take) and that was usually with a 1 train operation. Depending on the Saturday you are going will depend on the wait times. What I mean is, is there a concert at the Palladium or a special event of some sort. Although I try to stay away from any park on Saturday's, including Carowinds, if I have guests in town I will make an exception. I was there about 4 Saturdays ago. Hurler was a 2 train wait. Vortex took about 10 minutes, Top Gun took about 10 minutes too. Hope you have a good time!
