History

Elements

Carowinds officially announced the addition of Fury 325 on August 21, 2014.[1]

On February 23, 2015, a lighting package was installed on the station and the lift hill.

Seats on the first three trains were auctioned to raise money for charity. The media day was held on March 25, 2015 (or "3/25" in shorthand).[2] Fury 325 then opened on March 28.

Design

The Fury 325 Layout

Fury 325 passes over and under two walkways from the parking lot to the park entrance. During the construction of Fury 325, the park entrance was rebuilt.[2]

Trains

3 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train. The front car from one of the trains was on show at B&M's booth during IAAPA 2015.

Significance
