Carowinds- Its next Coaster-What will it be? Where

Tuesday, January 30, 2001 4:58 PM
This is to all you Carowinds enthusiasts out there. I began to think after I had finished my Geometry homework today about what Carowinds' next coaster will be. Where will it go, when will it open? I begin to start thinking more and more about it. And thought I would get some good opinions on here. Please don't treat this as a discussion to bash Carowinds, I really just want to hear some of your thoughts, or any ideas you might have that you think would be a good coaster for Carowinds.
Here are some ideas I have for Carowinds:

1.) The Long Rumored Hyper Coaster- ANY MANUFACTOR

2.) Vekoma Flying Dutchman

3.) B&M Floorless- I know that there has been no rumor that Carowinds is geting a Floorless, but I just seem to have this feeling that I shouldn't count this one out on the Rumor board.

Thanks in advance! And I look forward to hearing your responses.

I highly doubt that a floorless would work, we have two B&M's as it is. The hyper would be a good, solid addition to the park, and this seems to make the most sense. This could fit in the area behind the Hurler. Also, I noticed late last season that they drained out that huge lake in the parking lot, and heard rumors that this would be a place for a future expansion. All sounds great to me, but the hyper sounds the most feasible.

Well a few thoughts.

The only paramount park to have a hyper coaster would be PKI and SOB. I highly doubt Carowinds will be the first to get a steel hypercoaster.

Flying Dutchman I do not see happening either, since the whole vekoma/paramount thing I think Six Flags will keep Vekoma busy with the Dutchmans.

Floorless is possible.

I would put your hopes in for a TA2K.

But they were the first to get the Saturator and I think that Carowinds and Canada will be the two parks due to get a coaster next year. Especially Carowinds wich of all the paramount parks this year is getting the least amount of attention.

I agree that a hyper is very possible in 2002, but a TA2K is a lot more possible since they are newer. As for location, I heard there would eventually be another themed area behind the Hurler (they did ground work back there last year), which would add room for a new coaster. I don't think that they would expand into the parking lot in the area of the pond because the entrance is to close. Just my opinion though.:)

What is life without ups and downs!?!?
