adds Carowinds and more

Posted Monday, June 24, 2002 4:54 AM | Contributed by CaptainJoel

Paramount's Carowinds is now the latest amusement park to be added to The Gallery is presently focusing on the Southeast United States as Lake Winnepesaukah was added last week and Six Flags Over Georgia will be added next week.

And don't think that is just full of pretty pictures. Tons of coaster information has been added throughout the site. If you need details about relocated, renamed, or demolished coasters, be sure to check out the search pages. In addition, a brief summary of each parks history has been added.

Excellent pics, as always. To me it's always interesting to see your home park from someone else's point of view.

What day(s) were you there? I think I spotted my uncle in one of the Top Gun pictures.

Carowinds is most likely re-theming the Old World Marketplace area to something else much like this year and adding ride(s) I guess... what rides no one knows right now but I hope it is a THRILL ride.

We had a very good trip there. (Before Joel took the pics of the Super Saturator we got to ride it without the water on. Pretty nice since we didn't want to get wet!)

Great park, with only one major flaw that day. When Joel was taking pictures, his wife and I went to 2 different food places around 1:00 for lunch. The park was not crowded. I got 2 hot dogs and two drinks, and it took 45 minutes! There were only 15 people in line in front of me. The samed thing happened to Joel's wife at a different food place. It was the worst food service I've ever seen. Now, it didn't spoil my day, but it's a shame it marred an otherwise near-perfect day at the park. Food service aside, it might have been the nicest time I've had at a Paramount park. (The only one I've not been to is Canada's Wonderland)
