Bought a 2 day pass for my granddaughter's 8th birthday weekend. Started both days at the water park and unfortunately several things were closed. Only one wave pool operating for no apparent reason. What's the fun in going to a water park if you can't...More

Although my boys are older now, we always got season pass holders for the family. We lived out of town, about 1 1/2 hrs away, but was definitely worth the trip as we'd always meet up with our friends and their children. My boys will...More

I've always loved coming here since I was a kid and seeing the changes and new rides makes it exciting. I just wish ticket prices didn't have to go up almost every year.

We have been going to Carowinds since it opened and love this park. Over the years it has improved and has more rides and shows than ever before. The fact that the waterpark is included is a plus. Perfect way to spend a day.
