Flying Super Saturator was a steel suspended family roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. It was built by Setpoint.

History

Flying Super Saturator opened on April 1, 2000. It was the first roller coaster of its kind, allowing riders to dump 4-gallon payloads of water on those Carowinds patrons who venture underneath the coaster's track. The ride also features numerous means for the riders to get wet as well, including water curtains, geysers and numerous ground-mounted water cannons that can be aimed by park guests at passing riders on the coaster.

In 2008, the coaster was demolished to make room for Flying Cobras.[2]
