    Pace Intensity Too short

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

    Harness Discomfort Intensity

    Short, intense (in a bad way), and VERY painful. I would not be mad if they gave this the floorless conversion.

    Nice surprise! Intensity Discomfort

    Surprisingly fun when ridden in the right seat. (Front, middle two seats, every other seat is terrible)

    Airtimes Duration Dead spots

    A long coaster with some great airtime, it does get a little boring sometimes though.

    Airtimes Smoothness Hangtime Dead spots

    Copperhead has some incredible hangtime and even some great airtime!! Some parts of the coaster are a little boring though.

    Location Headbanging Discomfort Layout

    This is a painful ride and while it looks beautiful, the ride feels like being tossed into a blender (ok maybe not that bad).

    Inversions Intensity Duration Rattle

    Kraken is pretty intense and has some good inversions. It’s pretty rough and does give you a headache if you ride it enough times, making it hard to marathon, but it’s still a fun ride.

    First Drop Fun Dead spots

    Gatekeeper is a very beautiful and fun ride that has good inversions and near miss elements. It does have some parts that feel forceless but overall isn’t boring. Probably my favorite wing coaster by B&M.

    Duration Discomfort Dead spots

    Basically your average arrow mine train, not very thrilling but should be good for families.

    Location Intensity Ejectors Reliability

    Lightning Rod is by far my favorite roller coaster of all time, beating other coasters like Fury and TTD. It has airtime unlike any other coaster every, it’s so powerful and non stop that after a few rides your legs might be bruised from it. My favorite experience on it though was in 40 degree weather at night, by far the most intense experience on any coaster I’ve ever ridden. The only issue with the ride would obviously be reliability, it took a while for me to get my first ride in this because it was always broken down. Of course now it’s a lot better but you still have The fear of it breaking down and not being able to ride it.

    Theming Nice surprise! Dead spots Intensity

    Firechaser is a very fun family coaster. It has some nice force in the launches which is a surprise but most of the ride is pretty forceless which is fine considering it’s a family coaster. By far the best part of the ride though is the theming, it has some really nice set pieces including a very cool backwards launch scene.

    Duration Discomfort Layout

    The theming is really good and really has a classic feel to it, unfortunately the ride is really uncomfortable and doesn’t do much.

    Airtimes First Drop Comfort

    Incredible coaster with some incredible airtime and easily my favorite hyper coaster.

  • Alex M.

    Airtimes Too short

    Good woodie for the kids that has a good amount of airtime.

  • Alex M.

    Theming Capacity Discomfort

    Boring ride that is very uncomfortable, it does have some decent theming though.

  • Alex M.

    Capacity Discomfort Pointless

    Rough, boring, and very uncomfortable, almost nothing good about this coaster.

  • Alex M.

    Duration Rattle Discomfort Tear it down!

    Very rough and boring coaster, it should hopefully get an RMC or GCI re-tracking soon.

  • Alex M.

    First Drop Masterpiece Layout

    Fury is an almost perfect coaster with incredible speed, airtime, length, and elements.

  • Alex M.

    Harness Intensity Rattle

    Flying Cobras is a surprisingly intense boomerang and is overall very underrated.

  • Alex M.

    Location Layout Lap Bar

    Overall pretty boring and uninteresting, but it serves a purpose and the tunnel at the end is fun.

    Intensity Discomfort

    Carolina Cyclone is a surprisingly intense coaster, but the bad transitions and mostly uncomfortable restraints ruin the ride.
