Cedar Fair Spotlight

This week, we will also be introducing another feature, Cedar Fair Spotlight. Cedar Fair is the company that owns Cedar Point, so without taking our attention away from Cedar Point, we're going to feature something from another Cedar Fair park every week. Now normally we would be posting this on Wednesdays, but unfortunately I didn't have a chance to get to type it, so I'm posting a little late.


Carolina Cobra was the new ride at Carowinds amusement park, owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, for 2009. Carolina Cobra is a Vekoma Boomerang coaster, which means that it takes you up the lift hill backwards, then drops you forward at the top, then after you climb up another spike, you go through the whole track again backwards. Carolina Cobra opened on Saturday, March 28th, 2009, and had a media preview on Friday, March 27th, 2009.

Carolina Cobra was a beautiful coaster. It was a very nice color scheme with striking orange track with lighter blue supports. The landscaping around the ride was done very well also, adding to the overall feel of the area. One thing that's extra special about Carolina Cobra are its slick new trains. These new trains that have never been used on a coaster before add to the ride experience greatly, by adding smoothness and more room to sit, with much more open restraints. So, onto the ride...

Carolina Cobra was excellent to ride. I have been on a few Boomerangs in my life, but none of them compare with Carolina Cobra. The ride was smooth as glass, and very intense at the same time. Going backwards through inversions is a very cool experience, and pretty intense. It was a great ride.

So how many times did I ride it? Five, in addition to every other roller coaster in the park, except for Vortex, which was closed down, and a few kiddie coasters. So, if you're ever down in the Carolinas, make sure you stop by Carowinds, because they have an awesome line up of rides, and it is a very beautiful park. And, remember that if you have a Cedar Point Platinum Pass (or a Platinum Pass for any other Cedar Fair park), you get all the same benefits at every location!

  2. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
