We’re honored to pay tribute to our military, an extraordinary brand of men and women who step up to preserve our freedom. Carowinds celebrates America’s best by offering what we do best: a full day of pure AMAZING with thrilling rides, super-fast water slides and ginormous waves, never-ending laughs and memories to last a lifetime. During our Military Days, we honor our courageous service members and their families by providing free tickets for military and military discount tickets.
On the dates above we will waive the admission fee for active military, retired military, National Guard and Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. Just bring a valid military ID to show at the ticket window. We also offer free tickets for veterans with an honorable or medical discharge. Family members can enjoy special military offers, too. Just bring a valid government-issued ID to receive these tokens of our military appreciation.
What’s more, service members’ families can take advantage of special Carowinds military discounts, when you buy in advance online.
