Ugh, what? It's not even the only one in their park, nor was it the first.

Goldrusher opened with the park in 1973 and crosses state lines.
Thunder Road opened in 1976 and crosses state lines.

EDIT: And if Google Maps is accurate, the very last part of Nighthawk crosses state lines, too.

I was never lucky enough to win that toilet seat.

Wow! Sounds like many of us have a little piece of Carowinds laying around in our homes. I was able to abscond a portion of Thunder Road track during a 1996 rehab. I've had it hidden away in my closet hoping to eventually display it somehow.

Hey Wormy, I bet that bolt fits my track hole!

All those pieces of history probably wouldn't mean much to most of the youngins on here, but consider me jealous. I've been going to the park since before some of these posters were even born and it has quite the memories for me.

Found this under Scream Weaver on my last visit to the park...

That can't be good... There has to be a missing screw and nut laying around somewhere..

I promise you, when I work around the house, there is not a missing screw and nut for every washer that has fallen out of my hands, into the grass.

That sure is how it seems.

Agreed. I still watch those C3 videos every now and then and get a good laugh out of them.

You're welcome, Marathon. Who are they again?

Dead Inn. Great, the one I liked; a classic haunted house style maze - nixed. Or was it a haunt? Or was it a scare zone? Or is there a difference? Did it have its own logo? I get confused.
