The Carolina SkyTower is one of Carowinds’ original attractions, opening on March 31, 1973 with the rest of the park. This ride is perfect for families, as it features an air-conditioned cabin that travels up a 262-foot tower. Once the cabin reaches the top, it rotates, giving guests an unobstructed panoramic view of both North and South Carolina. The entire park can be seen from the top of this ride. Off in the distance, guests will be able to see the Charlotte skyline as well as the mountains.  

The relaxing nature of the Carolina Skytower makes it the perfect spot to take a break and enjoy the beauty of Carowinds during a day of thrills on the state line. This is also the only ride in the park that permits on-ride photography, so you can always remember this un-rivaled view. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind family experience!
