Top 7 Coaster Hair Don't Care Photos - National Roller Coaster Day 2019

One of the most exciting days for Carowinds is August 16 - National Roller Coaster Day. It's a day filled with guests taking selfies in front of their favorite roller coasters, fans across the nation debating which ride takes the top spot, and all of us enjoying the thrilling rides that we love. 

With National Roller Coaster Day 2019, we wanted to celebrate and to share those special roller coaster moments and memories. We held a contest using #CoasterHairDontCare on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram asking fans to send us a photo of their coaster hair or coaster face. The person with our favorite photo would recieve FOUR Gold Passes for 2020!

We recieved hundreds of entries, and our marketing team looked at every photo to narrow down the field. It was a fierce competition, but we finally settled on a group of top contenders and one overall winner. Check them out below!
