Naturally since I wasn't at the event it was a good morning to be keeping tabs on the park's construction webcam, which allowed me to grab these before & after looks at the instillation. The final piece connected the coaster's main ride track with the brake run. The park had plenty of media out for the placing of the final piece, so they actually practiced putting it in place, then taking it back down.
Carowinds has also started to share details of an all new culinary event that will take place this Spring, Taste of the Carolinas. The event will run on Saturday and Sundays April 18th through May 17th. The event will celebrate both the food and beverages of the different regions of the Carolinas, with plenty to sample, cooking demonstrations and more.
