What is Carowinds?
Carowinds is a premier amusement park in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area on Interstate 77. The park has been around since 1973 and occupies 400 acres. There’s an adjoining water park called Carolina Harbor that’s 27 acres.
What Kinds of Rides are Available?
No matter what kinds of rides you’re looking for, you can find them at Carowinds. Thrillseekers will love the wealth of roller coasters, like the swirling, heart-pounding Afterburn or the sky-kissing Fury 325. If you feel like flying, the Ripcord bungee ride or the Drop Tower ought to suffice.
For families, there are also plenty of options. Try the Dodg’ems bumper cars, the classic Scrambler, the Zephyr flying swings, and even the Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena 3D game.
Then there’s the waterpark, the Carolina Harbor, which you gain entry to when you buy a Carowinds ticket. There are as many water slides as you can dream of, some with tall heights and radical twists and turns and others that are intended for children. In other words, there’s something for everyone at Carowinds!
What About Entertainment?
Once you’re done with the rides, sit back for some great Carowinds entertainment. Regular shows include Charlie Brown’s Happy Campers, New Roots Bluegrass, and Seasons of Cirque. There are also sometimes special events, like meals with Peanuts characters, KidsFest, and more. Don’t miss Dinosaurs Alive!, where animatronic dinosaurs aplenty (more than 50!) roam the park. Kids can learn about dinosaurs through the animatronics, exhibits, and by digging up fossils. What fun!
