 Review of Carolina Cyclone @ Carowinds

Date Ridden: Summer of 2007 and 2008. Times Ridden: 2 There is nothing wrong with being average. Despite most of my reviews receiving scores of and 8 and above, over half of my 328 coasters score in the 7 or lower range. These are normally coasters at parks that are not as famous and, let&#39.s face it, not as good, as the others I have ridden. The Carolina Cyclone is one such coaster. To begin with, it is a steel looping coaster, not a wooden coaster like the original Coney Island Cyclone. The ride consists of vertical loops and corkscrews and, despite its age, is still relatively smooth. The restraint system is not the greatest in the world, but is still not a horrible ride so there is not a log of head banging and ear bashing. One good thing is that we have only ridden this specific coaster in the first third of the train. I have found that on sit-down steel loopers, the back is to be avoided at all costs as the force of whipping the train through the inversions leads to a great deal of discomfort on any looper not built by B and M. I avoid riding in those positions. So anyway, I guess an average coaster deserves only an average review. When at Carowinds, don.t forget about the old girl toward the back of the park. The lines are never long and the ride is ok. I do not regret any of my rides on the Carolina Cyclone......because there is nothing wrong with average.
