Union (formerly Studiobanks) took a well-deserved day off this past Friday and headed down to Carowinds amusement park. We intended to take a day trip to the park last summer but became too busy with projects so we never actually got the chance. While we are equally busy with client work this summer, we decided if we didn’t just pick a date and put it on our studio calendar we would end up missing the trip again. Truth be told, there is never really a good day for the entire studio to take off, making the idea of waiting for such an opportunity kind of pointless. So we circled June 18th, took a break from our designing, developing and other tasks and enjoyed a day in the sun. It was hot! Very hot. But we didn’t let that stop us from having an incredible time. We started and ended on the new Dale Earnhardt inspired Intimidator roller coaster. Carowinds is touting the new coaster as the “tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in the Southeast.” We were impressed. It certainly lived up to the hype. Other attractions we hit included the Nighthawk, After-burn, the Carolina Cobra, the Sky-tower, the Vortex, and Snoopy’s Flying Ace.
All in all, it was great just to relax and have fun with everyone on the Union team outside of our studio. Be sure to check out our photos over on our Flickr account.
