Busy Off Season at Carowinds

© Carowinds

Lots of activity is taking place at Carowinds, and the park isn't being shy about showing off.  Seen above, Thunder Road is in the middle of its 5 year renovation.  This year the lift hill and first drops are being totally redone.  With many improvements already made to the ride, such as a complete rebuilding of the turnaround sections, guests are sure to find an increasingly enjoyable ride on the coasters.

The park is also prepping for Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular, digging up areas so that electrical wiring can go in.  Vortex is also changing colors in 2011, receiving a new paint job of red track and gray supports - just like Intimidator.
