Fury 325 Swarming Carowinds in 2015

After all of the Centurion hype, it was Fury 325 all along.

In what will be the tallest and fastest B&M roller coaster ever Fury 325 will take the best of the previous 3 Cedar Fair giga coasters and wrap it all up into one 325 foot tall, 6,602 foot long monster of a coaster coming to Carowinds in 2015 themed after the twisting, diving flight of a hornet. The layout features elements similar to Leviathan given the interaction with the restructured park entrance, and is sure to bring plenty of heavy g-forces and strong moments of airtime.

The Facts:

  • Track Length: 6,602 feet Lift

  • Height: 325 feet

  • Angle of Descent: 81 degrees

  • Time: Approximately 3 minutes, 25 seconds

  • Maximum Speed: Approximately 95 mph

  • Capacity: Approximately 1,470 riders per hour

Fury 325 is a continuation of the $50 million expansion and revitalization project previously announced for the park, which also included new waterslides, restaurants, and a new from gate and toll booth complex that will interact with Fury 325.

At the end of the day, I think this is a predictable, yet extraordinary addition to Carowinds. Yes, it does continue the trend of gigas after hypers as started at Canada’s Wonderland, but the unique composition of elements in the layout will truly make for a unique ride with the back-to-back overbanked turns and unprecedented speed. As stated by numerous critics, Fury 325 is the coaster that will truly solidify Carowinds as a destination that should be on any coaster fanboy’s bucket list.
