    I enjoyed this book about the history of Carowinds. It's been a number of years since I've been, but I have some fond memories of going. The roller coaster history was especially interesting to me. I recall and liked that the NC/SC state line was marked inside the park.

    A great look at the Carowinds thrill park situated between North and South Carolina. Wonderful historical photos show the timeline of the park. Scott Rutherford does a great job of detailing the park's history. This edition ends with the introduction of the Intimidator. Fans of Carowinds will enjoy it. Theme park fans will be glad to get their hands on this one-of-a-kind resource.

But there was on way I was getting on the Intimidator.
