Couple ties the knot atop Carowinds biggest coaster, Fury 325

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Mount Airy couple made history Thursday morning at Carowinds, becoming the first to ever be wed on the Fury 325 -- the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster.

James Music and Cortni Bryant met in 2015 and had their first official date at the amusement park last spring, where they roade the Fury 325 more than a dozen times.

On Thursday, the couple screamed “I do” while taking the plunge on the coaster, and returned to cheers as they exited the ride.

Fury 325 debuted at Carowinds last spring and the record-breaking coaster stands 325 feet tall with an 81-degree initial drop and reaches speeds of 95 mph.
