So I stopped by the park for 15 mins today and wow it was busy. So lets begin.

Whats this? What is it pushing down?

Image

THEY ARE PUSHING...HOLES INTHE GROUND FOR REBAR?!?!?!?!? I DUNNO YOU TELL ME!

Image

Image

Can someone tell me what that is?

Image

A staple of this topic, dirt.

Image

Blocks are over here now, I think that trench is where the splashdown will be, not sure though.

Image

Rebar pushing thing

Image

What is this for? I wonder

Image

Image

Hmm, maybe lightnin' will come....

Image

The red crate betrayed me...please dont let you guys betray me..or else.. :twisted:

Image

Eh it's probably nothing, my guess is the track is off property.

Image

What is going on back there?

Image

Personally I think the former log flume area wil be mostly the splashdown and the station and the rest of the ride will be in the parking lot

Image

I am guessing those are 3 important guys at the bottom

Image

Some more zesty dirt porn...sorry if thats offensive

Image

On to the parking lot and more final summons

Image

Can I introduce a new term? Rebar porn?..sory if thats offensive

Image

DRILL PORN! sorry if thats offensive..

Image

Mmmm chocolate rebar! ;)

Image

DONT LOOK AT ME RED CRATE! ..... it's too painful :(

Image

REBAR! Need I say more?

Image

Getting rebar is more exciting than getting track...... :? ;)

Image

Pardon me sir, do have any rebar?

Image

Insert rebar joke attempt here

Image

Bye bye rebar.... :(

Well folks, there is definately a storm brewing at Carowinds...

GREAT pictures man.
I think the drill thingy is a well digger or something... that wouldn't make sense, though because you'd think (if they had a water fountain in the que line) it would be from the main water system that goes around carowinds, not from a well.

The machine you see is a drill used to dig holes to put rebar into the ground to hold concrete which is used to hold footers. Every hole you see dug by the machine is where a footer is likely to go in the end.

If your talking about the hurler wooden coaster, than that is a gokart track that they added a couple of years ago.

Go carts that you must pay extra for.
