[Carowinds] Fury 325 Support Failure
« on: June 30, 2023, 10:27:00 PM »
A major support structure on Carowinds Fury 325 has completely broken apart and the track is visibly floating. You can see the separation clearly as the train flies thru the track. Do note this coaster has some pretty intense G's and has a top speed of 95mph. I have been on this coaster and that is pretty shocking to see, especially for a B&M thats less than 10 years old.

I'd like to know if this literally just happened or has maintenance been cutting back on inspections?

Video of the separation while the coaster passes thru:

Another update with a detailed statement. Great transparency with Carowinds and B&M here.

I'll guess that's intended to keep water out.
