Carowinds Field Trips & Youth Group Celebrations


Carowinds is temporarily closed as we continue to follow regional and national health directives related to COVID-19. It is our hope to resume this activity as soon as it is safe to do so.

They are the three words your students have longed to hear: “CLASS FIELD TRIP!” All year you’ve worked on the fundamentals with your students and now it’s high time for FUN! For years, Carowinds has provided the perfect backdrop for out-of-classroom, fun school activities and student field trips, and we’re ready to roll out the red carpet for your students, too.

Super-fun roller coasters? YES! Way-cool attractions, thrill rides and games? Of course! Funnel cakes and other treats? You know it! Everything your students need for a fantastic school trip is here. Plus, add a catered picnic meal to make the day complete and worry-free for you.

Time and again, we hear that a field trip to Carowinds is among our guests’ favorite memories, so bring your class, summer camp program or youth sports team, and let’s have a blast!
