Carowinds' Zero Gravity Ride, Scream Weaver

Park: 10 AM - 10 PM Waterpark: 11 AM - 6 PM View Hours
Scream Weaver
Don’t flip out!

On Scream Weaver, you will start out in gondolas on a big wheel that spins around and around, like a simple carousel. Then, the speed picks up. Faster and faster, the centrifugal force kicks in to the point where your gondola tilts outward. The speed continues to increase until you believe you cannot go any faster.

Just then, the large arm supporting the entire wheel raises to 90 degrees, rearranging the ride from horizontal to vertical. And that means – you know it – you’re going to flip upside down at the top of the ride’s orbit. Just at the point when you think you can’t scream anymore, the ride slows a bit, its arm starts to lower back to a horizontal position and it feels like a sublime carousel again.

Height Requirement: 54” minimum
