Hey everyone, new member, old Carowinds fan...well, not that old. Here goes:

First visited Carowinds in 1973 (yes, the train, the trolley, and cruising on the monorail over the old entryway pond was spectacular).
Worked Sound Circus shows 1987-88 while I was in college.
Originally from Burlington NC, moved to Hershey, PA early 90s...still there, so HP is our home park now.
Just returned for the first time to Carowinds this summer...oh my...lots to talk about.
Favorite Carowinds ride: Watched them build Carolina Cyclone, rode it a zillion times. But...after riding Intimidator, it gets the medal. Good thing you got the B&M version...
Favorite parks: Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Disneyland, HersheyPark (of course)
Special thanks to Swampfox43 for the awesome photo collection - thanks for the memories!
