Fall Dining to Die For

Ashlyn Hunter |
October 1, 2021

A new year of fall festivities calls for a new line-up of fall food! Keep scrolling to see what's in store for your taste buds during Great Pumpkin Fest and SCarowinds in 2021.

The Food Truck is Back!

Some of our biggest fans may remember the Carowinds food truck. IT'S BACK! You can find the food truck, along with its delicious fall food offerings parked in Thrill Zone near Jukebox Diner and Fury 325.

Pulled Pork Sliders

Bite-size toasted buns are layered with our juicy pulled pork and a house-made slaw.


Loaded Tater Tots

We're taking "loaded" to the next level. These warm tots are topped with nacho cheese, chili, sour cream, jalepenos and - drumroll please - Flamin' Hot Cheetos.


Sweet Potato S'mores Fries

A bed of fresh sweet potato fries is topped with a marshmallow topping that is then torched until it reaches that ooey gooey perfection.


Fresh Pork Rinds with Pimento Cheese

Our creamy pimento chese is the perfect southern staple to complement freshly fried pork rinds.

Desserts to Die For

For our guests with a monstrous sweet tooth - fear not! In addition to our normal line-up of sweet treats, we have two new festive fall offerings.

The Green Monster

This new - and quite adorable - treat tastes just as good as it looks! This monster is made with a vanilla-mint shake base and then topped with a jumbo fudge brownie and a chocolate sprinkle topping. Don't take our word for it, order your own Green Monster at Shake Central for a limited time. 


Pumpkin Pie Funnel Cake

A classic funnel cake is hard to beat, but we're pretty sure our culinary team just did. This autumn funnel cake has an ENTIRE SLICE of pumpkin pie on top along with ice cream and a pumpkin spice blend. You might need to share this one - or not - we won't judge. ;) Find it at Funnel Cake Emporium and South Gate Funnel Cake.

Beverages With a Bite

From the Harmony Hall Bar to Blue Ridge Tavern, our guests know we have quite the selection of craft beer and other speciality. This year we've added a beverage that's a little more sinister. Our new blood bags are A Positive-ly delicious infusion of red wine, pears, oranges and apples.
