Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Hurler, a roller coaster at Carowinds. (The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.)
This is the same coaster that at least one other Paramount park has. The train is powder blue with flames licking up the sides. When it was built, it was themed around the Wayne's world movie, and the station was supposed to look like Kewpie doll factory. The Wayne's World theming has since disapeared along with the TVs you could watch in line. Now it's just a really fast fun woodie. The track is oval shaped with one outer and two smaller inner laps. Lots of fun for a standard coaster, with excellent pops of airtime.
Hurler is quite rough. It's coasters like this that just make me sigh and shake my head. If you must ride it, brace yourself. The one thing that makes this thing okay is the airtime. - Bradley Keith
