The nighthawk is a pretty good coaster for Carowinds. Nothing like Thunder road for a good ol wooden coaster experience

I'm glad Carowinds is adding some better rides. They were and still are being smoked by Six Flags and the like. Last time I was at Carowinds it was rather ghetto unfortunately. Grew up going there, sometimes 2 or 3 times a year from Columbia. Anyone remember White Lightning? Lightning strikes......now!

Yes! I was there last year for my brother's bachelor party. He wanted no part of strip clubs, etc. So he decided we'd all drive from Cola to Ohio for a few days. We did Cedar Point, Kings Island, and then hit up the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Cedar Point is by far the best park I have been to. They had just opened Gatekeeper. Almost didn't get to ride Top Thrill Dragster because it broke down twice while we were in line, but we finally made it. Kings Island has the legendary The Beast, which IMO was the second best coaster I had ever been on behind TTD.

I hate that that coaster is gone. That ride was the closest any park ever had to a catapult launch.

That coaster was a shuttle loop launch coaster. Worked with a flywheel or a weight drop system. This gave birth to the linear induction systems that basically ran on electromagnetic propulsion

Somewhere there is a picture of a 13 old me wearing a " I survived thunder road" t shirt and grinning. Good times. I always liked the old up and down wooden coasters over the loop ones.

I will say the new stuff coming out is pretty great though.

I went to Cedar Point when Millennium Force just came out and it was quite exhilarating. I ran out of yell on that first drop. Had to wait 2 hours to get on it though.

For some Cockycash who can tell me the saying on the 4 signs as you climb Thunder Road?

"Grit your teeth, bear the load, enjoy your ride on Thunder Road."

Grew up going to Carowinds a good bit. Saved up my allowance and got season passes a couple of years. Loved Thunder Road and the Hurler. Glad to see they are improving the park though. Like someone else said, it was kind of ghetto last time I went (about 4 years ago).
