In my current quest of living on impulse I happened to be in Charlotte. I saw signs for Carowinds and … well … I couldn’t resist. It had been almost 2 months since I last rode a roller coaster. Since Carowinds is a Cedar Fair park and I have a Platinum Pass, it wouldn’t cost me a penny (free parking!) to go to the park. So I did. :)
Mostly I just wanted to ride The Intimidator, which is a great steel coaster. There was a single rider line so I barely had to wait!
It was fun. It felt weird since I hadn’t been on a coaster for a while. A girl in front of me screamed in terror for the entire ride. All in all, good times.
Afterwards I walked around the park a bit and had to go on the Hurler, Carowinds’ resident wooden coaster. It was bumpy. I think I inadvertently elbowed the girl next to me in the face.
That was that. I left. I felt good. But the tour is still over. I’m not going on more coasters.
Unless I do. ;)
