Carowinds is almost right "in our backyard" so we finally broke down and bought gold passes now that our kids are old enough for the bigger coasters. I really think the park has improved a great deal in recent years - it seems cleaner and...More

We had a corporate day at Carowinds and I thoroughly had a good time! I'm not a huge up-and-down roller coaster ride fan but there were plenty of other choices available. Be prepared to spend money INSIDE the park on the things like the novelty...More

CaroWinds has awesome roller coasters! We normally visit Six Flags in Georgia, and even though this park is smaller, it's better! The water park is much bigger as well. This park was very clean and beautiful and we had a great experience there! We loved...More

Great night of fun! Kids loved it! Lines are not as long as the summer time lines. It is scary, but not too scary. Wouldn't recommend it for small children, although lots of small children are there. All the teens loved it!!

Has anyone on here ever used Fast Lane and know if it is an electronic device (like the Flash Pass at Six Flags) or a Wristband? Any answers would help thanks.

Its just a wristband. There are 2 different passes, the regular fast pass for the smaller rides and then Fast Pass Plus includes the smaller attractions AND the larger more popular rides.
