New Meetup: End of Summer Day Trip to Carowinds in Charlotte! (TENTATIVE DATE)

From: @pril
Sent on: Tuesday, May 25, 2010 10:42 PM
I KNOW IT'S EARLY BUT I WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND PUT THIS ON THE CALENDAR IF ANYONE NEEDS TO SAVE MONEY TO GO!

Announcing a new Meetup for Triangle UnderDog Kickball Group!

What: End of Summer Day Trip to Carowinds in Charlotte! (TENTATIVE DATE)

When: Saturday, September 18,[masked]:00 PM

Ticket Price: $39.99 per person

Where:
Carowinds Amusement Park
I-77, exit 97
Charlotte, NC 28273

DO YOU LIKE ROLLER COASTERS & THRILL RIDES? JOIN US IN A DAY TRIP TO CAROWINDS IN CHARLOTTE!

They are open 10am-10pm, so we will leave the area at about 6:30am so that we can get there early enough to find close parking and get in line before everyone else. We should get back to Raleigh at like 1 or 2am.

It would be best if we carpooled as the parking fee is $10.00 per vehicle for the day.The price of the parking fee and gas will be shared between everyone in that vehicle. I think a fair price to chip in for gas is like $8 per person, but we can look at gas prices when it gets closer to the date. PLEASE LIST IN YOUR RSVP COMMENT BOX HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU CAN FIT INTO YOUR VEHICLE OR IF YOU NEED TO CARPOOL. ALSO IF YOU WANT TO CARRY SMOKERS OR NON-SMOKERS.

ADMISSION PRICES:
Ages 18-61 and at least 48" tall in shoes / $49.99 each (does not include water park). IF YOU BUY YOUR TICKET ONLINE, IT IS JUST $39.99!!!

The food there can be pricey. So if you would rather, you can bring a cooler with drinks & food and keep in my trunk. I will be bringing 2 coolers in my trunk for myself and anyone else that needs to use it. You will have to call my cell while in the park and come and get my keys though.

*************************

** THRILL RIDES **

DROP ZONE STUNT TOWER - Strap into an open car and lift 160 feet into the air at a speed of 16 feet per second. Feel the tension build as you?re held for a few seconds, and then dropped all the way down on a 100-foot, 56 mph freefall?all in complete safety. Just 60 feet above the ground, the ride?s magnetic braking system saves you from gravity.

SCREAM WEAVER - A large wheel with interconnected gondolas spins horizontally before tilting into a vertical position, sending riders into an upside down orbit.

SOUTHERN STAR - A giant looping Viking ship that swings backward and forward, then turns a series of two complete loops, suspending riders upside down 80 feet in the air. Riders experience sudden speed changes and controlled freefall as the ship swings through its 360-degree cycle.

XTREME SKYFLYER - Take on this action-packed adventure and get hoisted 153 feet in the air, then pull a ripcord that plunges you into a 50-foot free fall flight at 60 m.p.h. You will experience the soaring thrill of hang gliding coupled with the suspense of skydiving. This is a pay-per-experience attraction. (EXTRA PRICE)

THUNDER RACEWAY GO CARTS - Go Karts that zip around a themed race track! (EXTRA PRICE)

THUNDER ROAD - Twin-racing rollercoasters that take you through two U.S. states - North and South Carolina.
