RIDE MORE. WAIT LESS. SPEED PAST THE LINES WITH FAST LANE!
In 1903 - Kitty Hawk, North Carolina became symbolic to the Carolinas as the site of the "first flight." Now, more than 100 years later, Carowinds is giving guests the opportunity to experience what the Wright Brother pioneered; the sense of soaring through the air!
Windseeker is the second tallest ride at Carowinds, only behind Fury 325. The three minute ride begins when the ride's carriage, featuring 32 two passenger swings, slowly rotates while climbing to the top of the 301-foot tower. Riders will experience a sense of weightlessness as the swings reach speeds up to 30 mph and the arms extend outward at a 45-degree angle; promising to give riders an astonishing panoramic view of not only the park - but also of the great Charlotte region.
The fun really lights up when the sun goes down as Windseeker features an elaborate LED lighting system! Aside from the LED spotlights that are located at the top and bottom of the tower, the carriage is equipped with LED lightings which run from the tower down to each of the ride's steel arms. At night, as the ride ascends to the top of the tower, the light display will come to life with a kaleidoscope of colorful patterns and shapes.
