Happy New Year, Carowinds fans!

I hope you each had a wonderful holiday! Any New Year’s resolutions you want to share?

This season, our New Year’s resolution is to provide each of you with more fun than ever before with the addition of WindSeeker, our new 301-foot-tall swing ride. For those of you who think Intimidator is big-look out! WindSeeker stands a whopping sixty-nine feet taller than the tallest, fastest and longest coaster in the Southeast!

For those of you who aren’t sure where WindSeeker will be located-it’s going in the Carolina RFD section of the park-located in between Nighthawk and the entrance to Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular!

Right now, if you check out our webcams online at, you can stay up-to-date on the construction of this monstrous ride. I’m sure if you check it out frequently enough, you’ll see yours truly wondering around, hard hat in hand, getting those construction photos you all love so much!

Here’s a shot from today: Brrrr…was it ever cold out there! Like what you see? Check out Carowinds Facebook page to see more photos of the WindSeeker construction site!

Of course with the addition of WindSeeker, our guests will see several changes throughout the area-like additional benches, trees, and shade structures. As soon as these exciting new additions make their way into the park you can be sure I’ll be snapping shots just for you!

Alright, back to our New Year’s resolutions for a moment. If braving your fear of coasters, thrill rides, or even the Character Carousel tops your list-we want to hear from you! I’m looking for a few brave folks looking to conquer their coaster fears once and for all…and who are willing to share each moment with our fans!

If you (or someone you know) fit this description-tell us why you think you deserve to be Carowinds first EXTREME blogger at Be sure to include a few sentences about yourself, and include a picture. We’ll be looking at entries through January 31-so get yours in today! The lucky EXTRME blogger winner will get:

• Admission for two (2) into the park (bring a friend for moral support)
• Ride Warrior gear
• A keepsake picture of your first ride
• The chance for your experience to be viewed and read by thousands of fans!

Until next time,
