Description

Fury 325 at Carowinds, which opened in March 2015, stands as a testament to the evolution and innovation in roller coaster design. Created by Bolliger & Mabillard, a company renowned for its precision in coaster engineering, Fury 325 is a giga coaster – a term used for coasters that exceed 300 feet in height. This coaster not only surpasses this mark but does so with a style and smoothness that have made it a favorite among thrill-seekers. Stretching over an immense 6,602 feet in length and soaring to a height of 325 feet, Fury 325 is one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the world. It achieves a breathtaking top speed of 95 miles per hour, offering an adrenaline rush like few others.

The ride experience, lasting about 3 minutes and 25 seconds, is a masterclass in thrill ride design. The initial drop, an 81-degree plunge from the coaster’s towering height, sets the tone for an exhilarating journey. The layout is a harmonious blend of high-speed banked turns, camelback hills that provide airtime, and smooth transitions that maintain the intensity throughout the ride. The trains, each seating up to 32 passengers, are designed for comfort and an unobstructed view, enhancing the sense of speed and freedom. Fury 325’s most iconic element is its initial descent, which provides a moment of weightlessness and an unmatched view of the surrounding landscape.

The coaster’s theme, inspired by the speed and agility of a hornet, is reflected in its name and design. The striking teal and green track, towering above the park, is a visual spectacle, and the theming extends to the queue and surrounding areas, immersing guests in the experience even before boarding the ride. Since its debut, Fury 325 has received widespread acclaim, consistently ranking among the top steel coasters in the world. It is praised for its smooth ride, innovative design, and the seamless way it combines speed, height, and airtime.

Fury 325 is a landmark in the world of amusement park attractions. Its combination of sheer height, speed, and smooth ride experience, coupled with its thematic elements, make it a must-ride for coaster enthusiasts and an iconic part of the Carowinds experience.
