The world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster is about to open to the public.
I am so psyched! Opens at the end of the month, about 10 minutes and we have season passes so I can ride all summer long. Smile

video from the first test run of Fury 325

325 ft tall (99m)
angle of descent 81 degrees
95 mph (152 kph)






This park also has the Intimidator. Also fun.

Do you enjoy coasters? which is your favorite?

My live-in would love it. She's into that sort of thing.

Me -- I HATE structural heights... Oddly enough - being in an airplane with an open cockpit - even hanging out the door - doesn't bother me in the least...

But put me up on a high ladder, and my bladder starts yammering.....

I was feel nauseous at around 20 seconds!

Why anyone would want to do that is completely beyond my understanding.

Simply horrible.

I've never been on a real roller coaster. Just a couple of wimpy ones but I did fly in a bi plane. Done some loops and flips and jazz like that. It was fucking awesome!

Be my guest B & A. Me? This is my idea of fun.

That's a cool mug. It looks all cattywampus. Where can I buy one.

RE: The world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster is about to open to the public.
I LOVE coasters! I live just a couple of hours away from Carowinds, and can't wait to try that new coaster. My favorite used to the old wooden Thunder Road at Carowinds, but now that I'm middle aged, it's too rough for my taste. I still ride it though, but have to pre-medicate myself with ibuprofen and Dramamine! :lol:All my coater experience so far is on the East Coast. I haven't made it out to the Midwest or West Coast them parks.

I have issues with heights where I feel insecure. Airplanes, coasters, Grand Canyon, observation deck at the Empire State Building, no problem! I'll even zipline. But I won't go up on the roof of my 1 story house! The first year I owned it, I climbed up to clean out the gutters, got up on the roof to retrieve a stick on top, and was afraid to move or step back out onto the ladder. I sat there for a good 15 minutes working up the courage to move. I watched an episode of "Dirty Jobs" where Mike Rowe was a window washer in Hawaii. They climbed out onto this little seat about the size of a large bicycle seat and cleaned windows sitting on it. I could barely watch it. You'd have to pay me a million dollars to do that!
