With less than five months to go until METALCON convenes in Charlotte, North Carolina, here are the top 5 things (plus a bonus #6) to do while in the “Queen’s City!” Appropriately named for its 325 foot peak, conquer the twists, turns and drops aboard Fury 325, the world’s tallest and fastest giga roller roaster located at Carowinds. Located steps away from the Charlotte Convention Center, the heart of racing beats at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. If water is your thing, head to the US National Whitewater Center (USNWC), home of the world’s largest man-made whitewater river and an official Olympic Training Site. And number five, offer your respects to the late Reverend Billy Graham at The Billy Graham Library. Born in Charlotte in 1918, the renowned evangelist was raised on his family’s dairy farm, just miles away from Charlotte’s Airport.
Start making your travel plans today and reserve your accommodations with METALCON’s ONLY housing company, Globetrotter. And mark your calendar for June 1 when registration will officially open.
