This is a Front Seat 4K POV of Fury 325 Giga Roller Coaster at Carowinds in North and South Carolina. Filmed in 2015 with a Go Pro Hero 4 by TheCoasterViews. Thanks for watching.
Fury 325 is a steel roller coaster at the Carowinds amusement park located in Charlotte, North Carolina and Fort Mill, South Carolina. Manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, it reaches a maximum height of 325 feet (99 m) making it the tallest and fastest Giga Coaster in the world and the 5th tallest overall. During the ride, riders reach speeds up to 95 miles per hour (153 km/h), go through high-speed curves, and pass over and under the park’s main entrance.
In September 2013, the Charlotte City Council discussed plans for a proposed roller coaster in one of its meetings and it was revealed the ride would cost approximately $30 million. In a closed-session meeting, it was mentioned that the roller coaster would stand 70 feet (21 m) higher than the park’s Intimidator roller coaster which stands at 232 feet (71 m), meaning the new coaster would be 302 feet (92 m) high. On October 18, January 23, 2014, and June 9, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, the owners of Carowinds, filed trademark applications for the names Centurion, Fury, and Fury 325. In February, the Centurion trademark was suspended after another trademark application using the same name was found by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In July, the blueprints for Fury 325 were leaked showing the exact layout of the roller coaster. At the beginning of August, the park sent a beekeeper to deliver a partially burnt bug net with a card saying, „you’re gonna need a much bigger net to capture the thrills of the 2015 Carowinds season“, to several media outlets in the Charlotte area. On August 12, a microsite on Carowinds‘ website was found advertising a new ride called Centurion. A similar hoax was conducted by Kings Island leading up to the announcement of Banshee in 2013.
