Screamscape reports the following and I for one am wondering the same thing. This can't be it, can it?

2013 - Dinosaurs Alive and Maybe More - Rumor - (9/24/12) Carowinds has confirmed that they will add Dinosaurs Alive for the 2013 season, featuring a collection of 32 animatronic dinosaurs with the largest being a 60 foot long, 40 foot tall Ruyangosaurus. Dinosaurs Alive will take up 5 acres and is expected to cost an extra $5 per person to see, just like the other Dinosaurs Alive attractions installed at other Cedar Fair parks. I’m not exactly sure of the location just yet, waiting to find out more.
I’m also wondering if there is a chance we could see something else new added to the park as well, to be announced later. I’d hate to think that Dinosaurs Alive would be the only new addition to the park if it costs extra to see it. Both Kings Island and Kings Dominion added their Windseeker rides the same year that they installed Dinosaurs Alive. Cedar Point added new waterslides to their waterpark with their Dinosaurs Alive and Dorney Park added Stinger, a new roller coaster, to the park with Dinosaurs Alive. Adding only Dinosaurs Alive, an upcharge attraction, would be a disappointing way to celebrate the parks 40th anniversary in 2013.

That's nice that they're adding a Dinosaurs Alive since Cedar Fair has added them to alot of their pther parks. And I do agree that something else should and will be put in for 2013. My best bet would be on a Windseeker, but with the recent events at Knotts, maybe they might hold back on that till 2014? I'm not saying they will, I'm just saying that it's possible...

The ghouls and goblins of Carrowinds posted this very funny video and certainly worth sharing.

Reading today's Screamscape mention about Carowinds being closed this Sunday, July 7th, I just had to see for myself, and sure enough, the park will be closed to the GP due to a private party. Like Screamscape, I just think it's wrong and would love to hear from any of our readers on who they've heard about who rented the park out.

I hope it is/was the sensor. They do break from time to time and we certainly rely on them for safety, so it sounds like everything worked as planned (except for the riders who got an extra thrill).
