We're so excited to welcome you back to the park as we open for the 2021 season! Here a few tips to help make your return to Carowinds easy and full of fun. 

1. Activate your season pass ahead of time

Activating your pass online or on the Carowinds app is fast and easy. It'll save you time at the park, and that means more time for fun! Prefer to activate in person? Visit one of our Drive-Thru Season Pass Processing Events before the park opens.  

2. Make your reservations

Whether you're planning to experience the reopening of Carowinds before the general public at Welcome Back Weekend, where we’re pulling out all the stops to show our Season Passholders a safe and fun time outdoors, or you're looking a little further out on our calendar, make your reservations now!

3. Download the Carowinds app

Get more out of every day at the park with the official Carowinds app! Our app includes ride wait times for your favorite rides, an interactive guide map that will help you find the fastest route to any place in the park, easy access to your FunPix photos and a complete listing of all the entertaining shows and events so you won't miss a minute of the action. 

4. Pass Perks 

Get rewards simply by having fun? YES! With Carowinds Pass Perks, our new rewards program exclusively for Season Passholders, you could receive a fantastic prize to redeem on a future visit, a surprise offer to use outside the park, or an entry into a lucky drawing for a one-of-a-kind Carowinds experience. Here's our ultimate guide to this special perk just for passholders

5. Review our reopening plans

When Carowinds opens, we want you to have an AMAZING day and feel safe when visiting, so we developed an extensive coronavirus reopening plan – new processes and enhanced procedures throughout the park to help reduce the spread of germs. We’re all in this together and by working together you can safely and confidently enjoy the thrills, giggles, and endless smiles that only Carowinds can deliver. Take a look so you're ready for safe fun.

6. Have FUN! 

The countdown to fun is on so enjoy the anticipation! What are you looking forward to most? The rides, shows or delicious food? Spend some time daydreaming with the help of our new trip planner. Choose your occasion, experience and activities and you'll get a custom itinerary for you and your family or group! Mix and match and make new discoveries. 


See you at the park!
