The Scaredy Cat's Guide to SCarowinds

SCarowinds is one of the most fun times of the year at our park! But what if you want to enjoy the atmosphere of SCarowinds' haunted attractions without being scared? We've got just the guide for you.

 

No-Boo Necklace

The first thing you need to do is pick up a "No-Boo" necklace from any of our retail locations. This light-up, bat-shaped necklace lets our monsters know that you don't want to be scared. Once they see it, they will avoid jumping out at you or following your group. This necklace is essential if you want to walk around the park without fear of what's lurking in the shadows.

Scare-Free Shows

If you want to enjoy some live entertainment without the scares, we recommend checking out Skeleton Crew and Bone Brigade! Skeleton Crew is a high-energy production that involves a blend of acrobatic and cirque-style performances. The louder the crowd grows, the more daring their stunts become! If we had to sum it up in one word, it'd be suspensful

Bone Brigade is new to SCarowinds this year. Inpsired by traditional New Orleans funeral processions, this show involves a troupe of brass players and lively dancers performing jazz music throughout the park. But this isn't your average music show. If we had to sum it up in one word, we'd label it as bizarre. Check it out for yourself!

Carowinds has a strong, long-standing relationship with Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina.

I wanted to see it through some members' eyes and Kierra Sunris and Maria Kaltsounis were gracious enough to do email interviews.
