Prepare to feel the presence that will make your senses come alive with excitement - a presence that goes beyond breathtaking views, beyond hair-raising adventures, beyond the intimidating world-class roller coasters -- the presence of Carowinds. From the moment you enter, enchantment begins and the fun never ends.
At Carowinds, there are rides for everyone from thrill-seekers to families. The park touts world-class thrill rides, live entertainment, authentic Carolina cuisine and more!
Feel the sting of Fury 325, that reaches heights of 325 feet tall and breathtaking speeds of 95 miles per hour, or enjoy family rides like the Character Carousel or Woodstock's Express. Explore Carolina Harbor, the largest water park in the Carolinas. From towering water slides to wave pools, cabanas and a two-acre children’s area, it’s easily the coolest place to slide, splash, chill and dine. Best of all – it’s included with admission. Take a step back through time and experience the home-grown thrills of an early-era Carolina County Fair.
The park’s 13,000 seat Paladium Amphitheatre is home to a number of great concerts throughout the year.
In October, Carowinds transforms itself into something a little more sinister as the park becomes Scarowinds’ Halloween Haunt, providing pulse-pounding haunted attractions and hair-raising rides in the dark every weekend throughout the month.
And during WinterFest, Carowinds will be magically transformed into a winter wonderland full of enchantment and holiday cheer! Become immersed in the season’s spirit with spectacular holiday lights and décor, world-class live entertainment, luscious treats and fanciful experiences throughout the park.
