Carowinds, the 407-acre amusement park in Charlotte, South Carolina, is providing rollercoaster enthusiasts with the chance to experience virtual coasters and other rides from the comfort and convenience of their own home.
Thrill-seekers can experience the excitement of the Fury 325 and other rides by heading to Carowinds.com/RideAtHome.
From the leisure of their sofa, viewers can enjoy being plunged down seven simulated drops on the Intimidator or experience a cyber jo-jo roll on copperhead Strike.
Virtual experiences of several of the theme park’s other rides are also available, including Vortex, Carolina Goldrush, Hurler, Drop Tower, Afterburn, Ricochet, Blackbeard’s Revenge and several others.
The virtual online experience is being offered during the COVID-19 outbreak, which has forced many theme parks and amusement parks to temporarily close or, like Carowinds, delay the opening of the 2020 season.
