History[edit | edit source]
Carowinds officially announced the addition of Fury 325 on August 21, 2014.
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).
On February 23, 2015, a lighting package was installed on the station and the lift hill.
Design[edit | edit source]
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.
Trains[edit | edit source]
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[edit | edit source]
Fury 325 is the tallest roller coaster with a traditional lift hill, standing 325 feet tall. It is the seventh fastest, fifth longest and fifth tallest roller coaster in the world. It is the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster built by Bolliger & Mabillard.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Like its sister giga coaster Millennium Force, the amusement park sim game Planet Coaster has a B&M-type giga coaster called Rage inspired by Fury 325.
