Carowinds 2010 Question

Tuesday, July 7, 2009 5:26 PM

What will fit here?

Does anyone know if the potential track layout expands beyond this area? Are there markings on site? Land clearing elsewhere in the area? Any ideas? Hints? Will we know more after Coaster Stock?

Help a brother out.

The answer is yes.

Looking at that area, are we going to see the second "hyper-twister" in the country (Raging Bull being the first.) That area being cleared makes it look more likely then an out and back, normal or L-shaped.

It's an out-and-back. The area linked above is just for the station (and splashdown?). Construction markers go all the way to the south gate along the entire eastern side of the park.

Sarah Palin tells me it's going to be so tall, you can see all the way to Russia....

Last report was, "Ya betcha!" :) Not like she has a job any more.

A stock hyper announced at Coaster Stock by the metaphorical lipstick of livestock?

That was a stretch.

After this annoucment, will we see stock in CF climb or will Kinzel be sent to the stocks?

It's gonna be called "magnum force".

There are already support markings on the parking lot, matches B&M codes found on supports for Behemoth and as marked at SFoG when they built Goliath. Fenced all the way from the north side of the parking lot to the south gate.

There's a huge thread on CarowindsConnection forum about it, with similar pictures.

I r teh excited!

No splashdown I'm thinking Moosh. ;)

Anyway here is a slighty better MSpaint drawing I made of the overall construction area, outlined in yellow.

We have been following very closely over on Carowinds Connection, and usually have a few updates a week. I will be going Sunday, so I have should have a lot of new pics then.

No splash, but Behemoth like. Or so I hear. :)

I heard she was going to, but she stepped down at the last minute.

Agreed no splashdown. There's barely any room for it IMO.

Looks like *someone* has done some snooping and found a potential theme...

See more at Carowinds Connection...

...and before anyone asks, "How does red track translate to White Lightning?" let's remember that Silver Bullet's track is red with a yellow spine.

Monday, July 20, 2009 7:41 PM

Wow, that didn't take long.

Gee, White Lightning in the Carolina's go figure.
