I just watched the video a couple days ago. It is an excellent overview of how the park came to be and how the park became part of Taft Broadcasting theme park division, Family Leisure Centers.
Many folks don't know that Carowinds opened as a independent theme park in 1973 and ran that way for 2 years 1973-1974. The video does a great job to explain how the park came to be part of Taft Broadcasting theme park division in 1975. Course, that is the first year KD opened to the public.
In 1975, Taft had Kings Island, Kings Dominion, and Carowinds in its theme park division.
Maybe it's just me, but more and more of these types of videos are starting to sound like nothing more than carbon script copies of the "Images of America" books that have been released on whichever park the creator wants to cover...
I buffered to about the 10 minute mark and he verbatim went over the story about the little boy who wrote to Pat Hall as it stands in the book.
Not knocking the grind, I still enjoy all the old park footage in these types of videos, but neglecting obvious sources, not linking in them in the description, etc. just feels gross to a minor degree.
I think the thing is - other than heresy - there's not many sources that are going to give you great historical truthful stories. So many of these are going to unique stories unless someone has direct evidence and multiple sources sharing different aspects of the same story.
