I'll have to try out that breathing technique next time I ride 305. That first turn has some of my least favorite grey outs on any coaster. It really prevents me from loving the ride, especially since the rest of the layout is so awesome.
I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that the bonus creds came from Tibidabo. I was all set to bring some of my friends the day after I did Port Aventura (our last day in Barcelona), however after further research in the morning, I realized that the park was something like €35, with no pay per...
Time for the more coveted park.
Saturday, May 21st
We were in Barcelona for the weekend, before flying to Morocco Monday morning. I decided to hit the park on Saturday, so in the unlikely event that I’d have issues with transportation on the way back, I had Saturday night to deal with it...
I'm kinda thinking Pantheon?
Yes it's great, it's a Top 20 ride for me, probably Top 15 for most people.
It left me a little perplexed after my first ride. Like, wow that was really cool, but why am I having conflicting feelings? I appreciated it much more as I continued to ride though. But I...
As I mentioned in some previous posts, some friends and I journeyed off on a graduation trip across the Atlantic. Across two weeks, we did Madrid, Barcelona, down to Morocco for a few days in Marrakesh, and back up driving along the south of France. This was not meant to be a coaster trip (none...

8. Twisted Timbers
10. Storm Chaser

Today will be more of a photo dump than anything. As you’d expect, the walk-back tour for Fury 325 gave the opportunity for some unique views, so there’ll be plenty of photos.
They let our group in at 9:30 AM and escorted us over to the ride.
We went through the gift shop...

Most of us who were here for the meetup (over 50 people) stayed at the Springhill Suites for the weekend, onsite at Carowinds. It was a pretty nice hotel (far from your budget choice during a theme park trip), and super convenient when it came to location. That meant we...
I've actually only done Lightning Rod and El Toro when it comes to prefab/RMC woodies. LR is my favorite woodie but I don't find Toro that good.
So Voyage comes in as my favorite traditional woodie, ranked right behind Lightning Rod in my Top 5. It's a popular one for sure, but my first night...
