Carowinds' Spinning Fair Ride, Electro-Spin

Park: 10 AM - 5 PM SCarowinds: Closed View Hours

Electro-Spin is a shock of fun for families and thrill seekers alike, definitely a County Fair favorite. When boarding this attraction, riders are seated on floorless gondolas as they prepare for a ride like no other. Electro-Spin sends its riders though a freely rotating orbit, as its arms flip them upside down and all around. This unique ride is sure to leave thrill seekers awed by its arsenal of tangled tricks.

Electro-Spin is hailed as one of the most popular rides in the County Fair section of the park. This thrilling adventure was one of the four new rides announced as part of the all-new Carowinds County Fair, which opened in 2017. The new addition revitalized this segment of Carowinds, sending guests back in time to an early-era fair. The traditional rides, theming and classic fair food located here leave guests feeling as if they are visiting a local county fair from their childhood.
