Hurler is an International Coasters wooden roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina. The ride originally borrowed its theme from the 1992 Paramount motion picture Wayne's World, whose main characters frequently used the word "hurl". When Paramount sold its theme parks in 2006, the new owner, Cedar Fair has retained the name as fitting for a roller coaster but removed references to Wayne's World. It is the mirror image of Thunder Run located at Kentucky Kingdom. The coaster is also identical to the now-defunct Hurler at Kings Dominion. The Hurler has a g force of 4.1 and an average speed of 18mph.
