After much fanfare, debate, and anticipation, it’s official. The Golden Ticket Award votes selected Carowinds’ B&M gigacoaster, Fury 325, as the best new ride for 2015. This $30+ million ride spans 6,602 feet of steel track, and it is certainly the talk of the coaster industry this year. In so many ways, it delivers; it is a steel roller coaster fan’s dream – fast, smooth, and amazing! Over the past few months, Fury 325 has given over 1,000,000 rides, and much can be commended about the ride operators in the loading area. Not only is this the best new ride of 2015, we feel that it is the fastest loaded roller coaster in the world! Between the great excitement of the Carowinds staff and the energy of the riders, this ride is one that you’ll remember for years! Congratulations to Mike Fehnel and the entire Carowinds team! Keep up the great work!
