New Cedar Fair trademark Fury 325

Fury 325 sounds like a good name for a thrill ride, which is what Cedar Point has said will be next year's addition.

I like the name Rougarou for just about any ride. I wonder where and what that will be.

I agree with Pagoda, "Fury" would be a good thrill ride name. 325 could be degrees of an angle or anything really. Not going to get my hopes up for a giga-coaster until there is more to speculate off of then just a name.

But since people are guessing I'm saying Soak City gets a new 325' drop water slide.

Carowinds had "Beekeepers" hand out boxes with burnt nets to media yesterday.

Got an invite thru CarowindsConnection to go to the announcement but I'll still be in training 3 hours away that day :-(.

But doesn't Carowinds also have the Roman-style signage around?

One of these herring is red, but I'm colorblind....

Cen-Fury-on?

If Carowinds were my home park, I'd be getting super pumped right now. Seems like multiple attractions are headed their way.

I don't know about multiple, but if the first giga from B&M is as good as (trusted) sources say, I'd be psyched about getting the second.

Oh, wait, Carowinds *is* my CF home park I guess (even though my current pass says Dorney).

Yeah, pretty psyched... ;~P

Gator, it will be the first B&M Giga in the U.S., but not the first.

He knows that. Reread the sentence.

More mindless speculation:

Beekeeper teaser + aqua-colored B&M track coming out of the plant in Ohio + return of the Charlotte Hornets NBA franchise all suggest the new Carowinds ride will have some kind of tie-in with the local sports team.

Curious if we'll see a similar pro sports synergy tie-in with the Mantis refurb at CP. Someone at Cedar Fair must think these partnerships make sense. Certainly a lot of people love their sports teams.

While I don't personally relate to sports, and I don't quite understand why other people do, I do accept that there are people who love sports. Because of that, I think it makes sense to tie popular sports stuff into a roller coaster theme.

In other words, I understand why it would be done, but I will not get excited about it.

I missed the story on this. Is it confirmed, or just rumor at this point?

It's not confirmed. Lance says, according to his sources, the new paint test is linked to the conversion. I'm not sure how they would relate though. Would anyone care to explain how it would?

The colors on the track aren't Hornets colors though. I know they got a good deal with DEI for Intimidator, I doubt the NBA would be so kind.

Forgive me, I thought I saw some photos of teal B&M track. What are the track colors?

Blackie - thanks, I somehow missed that on Screamscape.

A Mantis upgrade for CP would be a great thing regardless of the theme. Floorless trains have been rumored since, what, 1998 it seems? I know the peanut gallery has always said it wouldn't work because the heartlines of the trains would be so different, but I'd be willing to be a test dummy regardless.

It's a light teal with lime green. Supports are rumored to be dark blue.

Hornet colors are teal and purple. The media invites were teal, green, dark blue, and black.

Dark blue and purple can look pretty similar in certain conditions. :-)

Perhaps things changed or they're just intentionally messing around since the name is about the only surprise left at this point (another example - the coliseum references could be for Centurion or a reference to the Charlotte Coliseum where the original team played), but I'll be surprised if there isn't some connection with the Hornets. And if you think naming a coaster after a sports team is goofy, don't forget Cedar Fair already set the precedent in 1964 with Blue Streak.

Guess we'll see in a few days!
