Flying Super Saturator was a steel suspended family roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. It was built by Setpoint and operated from 2000 to 2008. The ride operated on the spot of Flying Dutchman, which closed in 1984.

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 ventured underneath the coaster's track. The ride also featured numerous means for the riders to get wet as well, including water curtains, geysers, and numerous ground-mounted water cannons that could be aimed by park guests at passing riders on the coaster.

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