Carowinds 2008 Opening Day Photos

© pufferfish 2008

User pufferfish on the Theme Park Review boards has posted a photo report from Carowinds' opening day of the 2008 season.

It doesn't look like the park was quite as prepared with new signs and such as California's Great America was. As you can see above Nighthawk has a new sign up, but Drop Tower and Afterburn do not. Also, the Borg theming was removed from Nighthawk - that big orb is there no more.
Still, from the pictures it looks like the park had a decent crowd and the weather certainly looked nice... go check out all the photos!

While the destruction of the Star Trek theming is a crying shame, the new name for Top Gun is pretty decent. Also, it's very promising to see that one of the first priorities in terms of new capital was to spend money on a new plasma screen for the operators to better watch the riders on the Haunted Mansion. This is a promising change from the last time Cedar Fair acquired something they didn't have experience with: booting the animals from SFWoA. Make no mistake about it, Cedar Fair is NOT the same company it was 10 years ago. Let's hope they continue with more positive change.
