When the Carolina Cyclone debuted at Carowinds in March 1980, it was the first roller coaster in the world with four inversions. Equipped with a new harness restraint system and new paint job, the Carolina Cyclone is still a fan-favorite.

Riders climb 95-feet and reach speeds up to 41 mph as they race through two 360-degree vertical loops, two 360-degree barrel rolls and a 450-degree uphill helix over the midway. In total, riders go upside down four times. WHAT A RUSH!

Your friends on the ground can walk under the last two inversions and cheer as you go through a whirlwind tour. This is also a great spot to grab some pictures.
