Rider Comfort: In classic Bolliger & Mabillard style, Fury's trains are basic and most importantly, comfortable to the rider. Lapbars are the only restrictive device on the trains, which allows for abundant airtime to be felt by riders as opposed to a more restrictive over the shoulder restraint found on some other Giga coasters such as Intimidator 305. However, the lapbar is not the only device on the train, as Fury's trains also have seatbelts - these provide an added layer of security, and do not seem to hinder loading efficiency and dispatch times, which is good news. The zero car on the train is simple, and allows the front row of the train unrestricted sight lines of the radiant blue track zooming past the train. While traveling down the track, the ride is fairly smooth despite cruising by at 95 miles per hour. The only reason I state "fairly" is because on one ride of our trip, the ride was performing a bit rough (even so, the roughness did not largely detract from the ride experience), but overall from my laps on Fury, the ride was smooth and comfortable.
Fury is a crafted ride. The layout has a purpose, and the elements slowly introduce airtime into the coaster from the first banked turns where riders are gently lifted to the final hills that feature true ejector airtime. As a giga coaster, I was very excited to see that airtime was a focus, because most other giga rides focus exclusively on blistering speeds, and end up being dull, forceless rides. I am happy to say that Fury blends the thrills and high speeds into one exemplary experience. Bolliger and Mabillard did a great job in the design (I was very surprised by the generous amounts of airtime!), and Carowinds made a great choice for this ride. Fury fits the park perfectly and introduces a new, top quality thrill ride to Carowinds.
