Re: Fury 325 - Carowinds - Opening 2015

This coaster will be amazing, it just keeps getting better! And the speed it's going up in to, unbelievably quick! Only thing I hate about Giga's and Hyper's by B&M is that ugly continuation of spine/support work on the drop. Find it ugly on all that have them, but it's only minor and won't lose sleep over it :D

The penultimate air time hill has been constructed, but construction has now had to stop as they've run out of track.

In The Loop posted this video on YouTube, shows the unveiling of the train, as well as a good BTS look at Fury 325 :D

This seems like a park I'm unlikely to get to but I love the look of this coaster!

It's a little dark now, but you can still see that track erection once again resumed today with around 4/5 sections being added and another support being prepared to go up tomorrow.

The final camelback hill went up today, leaving only the final stretch of track up to the brake run to go. Depending on how quickly they work, I think we could see the circuit completed either tomorrow or Thursday.

The final section of track will be going in shortly by the looks of things!

Hmm, as quickly as it went up it came back down. Guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow/Friday to see the completion of the world's longest giga coaster, as it looks as though they were just checking that it fits ready for the media.

Whilst the track for Fury 325 is now complete, construction has continued on the front gate, footbridge and station, as shown in these images from the webcam and Mike Fehnel's twitter.

I like! However I hope Cedar Fair don't over use the whole 'ride going over the entrance" thing they have done twice now, will get predicatable, and unoriginal

With the trains now on the track, Carowinds have tweeted that testing is expected to start next week.

Earlier today they also tweeted the plans for the ride's entrance.

Not sure if it has been mentioned before, but there is a live auction for the first seats on Fury325, with all proceeds going to charity :)
