Event Details

Time for some Winter Warmup at Carowinds located near Charlotte, North Carolina. Around 120 members of the American Coaster Enthusiasts arrived for a coaster event and construction tour. This years event was held in Harmony Hall. I arrived for an 8 am check in and pick up my cool door prizes. Couple free tickets from Dollywood and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Awesome green Fury 325 hard hats, Carowinds back packs and a Fury mouse pad. The event was primarily a conference with public relations people from 9 different parks participated with displays, videos about there parks and things coming in the future. Some parks handed out cool flyers and others gave us tickets. Before lunch was the unveiling of the front car of the Fury 325 roller coaster. I spent a while looking it over and doing lots of photos. Lunch was an incredible mix of 1 star quality fine dinning  that is new this year at the park. They had about 5 different meals that we could sample. Finally it was time for the main part of the event I was looking forward to, a tour of the Fury 325 roller coaster construction site and a look around the park at other various things of interest. It was an incredible event with tons of cool perks, an awesome tour and some good food. Below are lots of photos from the days activities and to view all the Fury 325 photos from the tour. Thanks to the Southeast Region of American Coaster Enthusiast for an incredible event and amazing prizes.
