    Nice surprise! Pace Intensity

    did not know much about this coaster going into it but this thing blew me away there's like 1 corkscrew that I did not see coming and left me in shock at how intense it was.

    Smooth and intense, Afterburn is such an amazing invert and is easily the most intense ride at Carowinds.

    Inversions Pace Intensity

    My current favorite invert is a nonstop ride with some of B&Ms always amazing 90s invert inversions. The drop doesn't do much for me but it's not a huge deal, the loop, immelman and zero g roll are fairly typical for an older B&M invert but still really intense and fast paced. Nothing before on the ride can truly compare to the batwing however, the one on montu was trimmed and a bit dissapointing but this one was full force and absolutely insane with that much whip and positives at once with that really cool trench. The hill going over the station is the only breather on the ride but even still gives some good floater dipping you right into a crazy whippy corkscrew and an ending helix which gives maybe the best positives in the whole park. There is a reason this is my favorite coaster in the park and my second favorite B&M.

    Front row on this bad boy (which I prefer for inverts) is incredible. They nail the sense of high flying speed of a fighter jet. The first of the half bat wing is taken with such velocity that I thought we were gonna fly off the tracks. An amazing no nonsense coaster

    Not an invert fan personally so this isn't gonna be overly high for me. Thought it was pretty forceless.

    An awesome B&M invert, my favorite of the three I’ve ridden. The first drop is awesome and the coaster just keeps going from there, lots of awesome inversions and great intensity. My only complaint is that it seems to be getting slightly rougher on some of the banks and inversions, nothing too bad at all but worth a mention.

    Fun Layout Too short

    One of my favorite inverts. It never seems to have any lines. Most of the time, I wait less than five minutes to get on it. Anyway, the layout is good, and it has some really intense turns and inversions. It probably has the most and best positive Gs of any invert I've ridden.

    Pace Intensity Layout

    This ride is insane. The pacing is amazing, and every element delivers. Literally every vally has strong positive gs, and I mean every vally. The vally between the Immelmann and the Zero-G roll has positives. The entrance and exit of the batwing have positives. Even the exit of the corkscrew has positives, and that corkscrew is probably the whippiest corkscrew ever. The ride is intense, compact, and relentlessly paced. Everything I could want in an invert.

    Its funny how much opinions can change! when i first rode this ride, it was really not as good as I expected. This time, it was amazing!! This is probably my new favorite inverted coaster.

    Inversions Intensity Smoothness Too short

    A very good B&M Invert and one of the best coasters at Carowinds. I love inverts and Afterburn is no exception. I don't think it's one of the best but it for sure packs a punch. It's a shorter ride that is a lot of positives at once. I prefer most other inverts mainly because of the length. Afterburn is definitely one of the more forceful inverts out there but it always seems like there is at least one or two inverts better at most things. Banshee and Montu both have longer layouts. Montu, Raptor, and Alpengeist are slightly more intense. Talon and Raptor have a compact punchy layout that is just as intense. Great Bear is much more whippy. Afterburn does everything good but not as good as the others.

    This is an incredible B&M invert. The positives are great and it's incredibly whippy. Overall a fantastic ride

    A great invert that is packed full of great elements and intensity. The back row is seriously no joke. The only gripe I have is that it is a little short. Maybe just add another element or two and it has potential to be the best B&M invert.

    Love the theme. Now, to grade an invert...intensity is solid, the size makes it nice and compact in places but not too compact like Batman. Carries the speed really well and the ride sprawls out over its park location nicely. First drop is good and inversions feel appropriately whippy. The loop was pretty tight, and the rolls were smooth and fast. No head banging, no discomfort even though you get that typical invert bonkerz level intensity. Prefer the front on inverts but the back on this thing was really good as well.

    Inversions Masterpiece Intensity Too short

    Afterburn is one of the best inverted coasters out there. Wow is a good word for the intensity and strong layout this ride has. Many b&m coasters seem like they could have had better layouts, but the inverts dont seem to suffer that issue and afterburn is no exception. I love this ride and i can not wait to get back on it!!!!

    I love a good B&M invert and this one did not disappoint. The intense positive G's on this bad boy are real. I feel the need, the need for speed, and that need was satisfied. As my body was flung around like a rag doll I was giddy enough to scream "Great balls of fire!" You don't have time to think up there, If you think, you're dead. The whippy and heaviness of the ride had me screaming "Let's turn and burn!" to my fellow co-riders. By the end of the ride all of my blood was in my feet. Also the station soundtrack was great.

    Afterburn is an incredible ride. It maintains great intensity from start to finish. There is no rattle to be seen on Afterburn. Everything Afterburn does is outstanding. The problem lies in what it doesn't do. Afterburn ends far too soon. It has a ton of energy ready to be unleashed, and bam, you're done. The inversions are great, particularly the batwing. It's constantly diving in and out of trenches. All in all, a great inverted coaster.

    Fantastic B&M Invert that has the layout that really lets the inverted coaster stand above most of the competition. Each element comes right after the last, making for a very eventful ride as you haul through the trenches and trees that the track resides in. Though this is one of the longer B&M inverts I still just wanted more after the train hit the final brakes, definitely one of the best B&M Inverts I've ridden.

    Action-packed B&M Invert! The compact layout flows extremely well, as each inversion leads effortlessly into the next one. The Batwing in particular delivers an exciting surge of positive Gs!

    The Immelmann is a fun twist on the invert formula, but the rest of the ride lacked the pizazz I wanted from it.

    Afterburn is a perfect example of an outstanding B&M invert. It's perfectly paced without any dead spots. It has a loop, an immelmann, a zero-g roll, and a best of all, a batwing. The flat spin and a forceful final helix is a great finale to a fast paced ride that left me dizzy each time. My favorite invert in the US.

    Quite intense B&M inverter - which, like all others of its kind, has only four good seats in the whole train. No airtime.
