Caro is my homepark, and I was pretty underwhelmed by this announcement. This is supposed to be the “biggest investment in park history”, yet it is UNDER A HUNDRED FEET TALL! Come on, if Carowinds was a small Cedar Fair park like Michigan’s Adventure/Valleyfair/Worlds of Fun, this would’ve been logical, but compared to the sizes of the other MACK multilaunches this is pathetic... ICON is longer, and Caro had a lot more space to work with than Pleasure Beach yet they chose an even tinier ride. Still I’ll be there for passholder preview day, most likely. Oh and I had a question; where did the 82 foot height come from? I just saw that stat on Wikipedia and it’s not on RCDB, so is it an assumption or is it true? I can’t seem to find confirmation on the Caro website.




Size and length are hardly defining stats on what makes a good coaster - the pacing looks decent and there's a nice array of elements in there that have a good degree of snap. Looks like some decent airtime too thrown in with the hangtime elements. It might well be decent at everything without being an absolute standout coaster in terms of worldwide appeal - doesn't mean the ride will be underwhelming (except from the first launch lol Mack launches)


It doesnt look very intense though, I can enjoy non intense coasters but this doesnt look to give good airtime or intensity

Assuming it's reliable that's not a bad guess

MACK is known for reliability and comfortability, as well as being expensive but being able to provide a great experience for everyone.

It's just standard practice for Carowinds to open their rides on opening day.

Plus they confirmed it on their Instagram story

So Carowinds turned the webcam towards where the inverted top-hat is going up. It's also seems like the corkscrew and the launch barn is going up:

I saw this at first and I was like "what? oh, nevermind lol." Anyway, looks great! That banked hill through the loop looks awesome.
