Engineering Day

Engineering Day - 2016


Program Information


Give your engineering students an amazing lesson on a grand scale (and we mean GRAND, as in giga-coaster humongous) as they get a behind-the-scenes view of the creative and mechanical side of Carowinds. Irvine Ondrey, the engineers in charge of the thrills at Carowinds, will demonstrate and explain the electrical systems and engineering that goes into running the rides. 

The session will begin promptly at 10am in The Paladium - PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION!.
