^ We did a lap on the mine ride with the lap bars locked in the up position. The ride-ops never came by to check. Made for an interesting ride.

Wow. That doesn't sound like the kind of safety culture that is burned into a CF ride op's head at all. Did you tell someone, Dave?

I don't understand why the park would need any kind of transport ride to get people from one side of the park to the other. Carowinds seems really small.

^LostKause, Carowinds actually had a cable skyway at one time, and the park was much smaller than it is now.

I would love to see a return of the cable skyway to Carowinds. From what I understand, Carowinds got rid of theirs the same reason many parks did in the 80's. Evacuation problems in case of power failure.


Obviously, this decision was based on state laws regarding such situations, or individual park management at that time.

I sure hope 2011 gets more than a Starlight Spectacular. Throw the waterpark some love and get a new slide tower or water coaster or something to help cut down on lines!

My balnket statment of the month...

All water parks should expand, to help with the long line issue.

And they should all have Tornados and Bowl slides.

How ironic...I usually don't have a long line until I expand :)

Yeah, too bad it's for the nearest exit, though! :)

(Payback for the jabs you've taken in the past. But I love ya, man. I love ya!!)
