My Carowinds Trip of July 2018

Carowinds July 2018

My Carowinds trip began like any other normal road trip but unfortunately only me and my sister was able to make this trip, not because everyone had to work but more like too chicken. ­čÖé

We had a blast, lines were small for the most part and got to ride almost everything that we wanted to ride. Fury 325 was the highlight at least for me, since I’ve not been on a roller coaster since I was a kid and the Fury 325 did not disappoint.

The first time riding the Fury 325 I was fine until we started down the hill and I felt like I was going to fly out of my seat, but I guess it is designed to make you feel like that. Anyway we survived and can’t wait to go again.

I want to give a big Shout-Out to Carowinds for recognizing all military past and present by giving us a free pass to the park. Thank you very much.

Although not as many as I wanted to take but here are some pictures I took while there. Hope you like them. Oh Yeah, on my next trip I need to buy some type of contraption for my camera so I can take a video while riding on the rides.

Carowinds Military Days 2018

Carowinds Military Days 2018

Carowinds Military Days will be from June 30, 2018 until July 8, 2018. Carowinds pays tribute to our brave military service men and women by offering FREE park admission to any active, inactive or retired member of the United States military with a valid military I.D.

Parking will not be free but discounted. If you are going to give free admission, the parking should be free also. But I guess it’s their way to squeeze a few dollars out of us. You may also purchase discounted tickets for your immediate family.
