Around 4:15 PM EST today Intimidator got the green flag and took its first test run with the train flying through the ride’s mile long track. While neither of the ride’s 2 trim brakes appeared to be on and the mid course brake run barley slowed down the ride, it’s pretty obvious that this ride will live up to its theme and be just pure speed, not to mention the airtime that will result from it. Intimidator opens to the public on opening day, March 27th.

The park did a great job getting the word out that the ride would be testing today allowing fans to come see the first test in person, in fact there’s already a great video on YouTube:

What did you think of the first test run? Does it make you want to take a trip to Carowinds this year? Leave your comments and Park Thoughts!
