HELP

Woodstock Express is a wooden roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. The ride was once recognized by the American Coaster Enthusiasts as an "ACE Coaster Classic". However, this award has been revoked due to recent changes to the ride.

From 2005 to 2009, this ride was called Fairly Odd Coaster.

After Carowinds announced that Planet Snoopy would become Camp Snoopy in 2018, Woodstock Express still remains in its current name.
