The Coaster101 Podcast: A “Grand” Tour of Carnivale at Kings Dominion and Carowinds

We talk about Carowinds a lot, but when one of our podcast co-hosts visits the park for the first time, you know we’ve gotta hit the highlights! Shane was vacationing in Charlotte with his family, and not only did he meet Andrew at Carowinds, he also managed to snag a few hours at Kings Dominion on his way home. He hit the highlights! Fury 325, Copperhead Strike, Intimidator 305, Twisted Timbers, and Carowinds’ Woodstock Express! Also, there might be a mention of Shane’s new favorite beverage as a 21-year-old; Tum-E-Yummies.

This week on the podcast, we’re talking about the two park trips, how Shane’s “Top 5” coaster list was deeply impacted during this trip, as well as other coaster highlights. We also talk Grand Carnivale at both parks. After debuting at Kings Dominion (along with three other parks) in 2019, Grand Carnivale has come to Carowinds, and we discuss the eats, the entertainment, and why consumption of bread cones doesn’t necessarily lead to athletic endeavors.
