Boogie Board Racer Mat Racing Slide at Carowinds' Carolina Harbor Waterpark

Park: Closed Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Boogie Board Racer

Prepare for the slide of your life when world-class water slide racing comes to Carowinds! Debuting in 2021 is Boogie Board Racer, the longest mat racing slide in the Southeast delivering an AMAZING high-speed, high-thrill experience.

At the top of the water slide, you and five other racers will grab a mat and toe the line. Ready to race? In an instant, you will be released into the rushing current of Boogie Board Racer. Everyone will zoom through their own chutes – sometimes enclosed, sometimes open to the sun – always accelerating to fast speeds. Alongside each other, you’ll zip through multiple passes of outrageousness and into a 360-degree loop before a surprise drop into a splashdown finish. Will you be the fastest Boogie Board Racer? 

Boogie Board Racer is the first new attraction in Carolina Harbor waterpark since it opened in 2016 and “shore” to reward riders with a tsunami-size blast!
