Survey Markers for Carowinds Rumored 2012 Ride

Today Screamscape reported a survey marker sighting at Carowinds for a rumored 2012 ride near Intimidator, but no one had photos. So I went down to the park after work and saw a number of markers in the grassy field next to Intimidator.

What Will Mt. Olympus’ 2012 Roller Coaster Be?

Could Mt. Olympus Be Building a Flying Roller Coaster? I bring forth (once again) that Mt. Olympus has stated that they’ll build a major attraction for the 2012 season. Back in mid-December, they posted on their Facebook page that a major attraction is coming. With the announcemnt, the words “THINK BIG” and “FLY” were capitalized.
