For more than 40 years, Carowinds has been the place where the Carolinas come together. In 2015 we are excited to debut a fresh, new, and captivating experience for Carowinds -- one that celebrates the best that the Carolinas have to offer.
Fury 325 Swarms Into the Carolinas
A swarm will descend upon the Carolinas in Spring 2015 as Carowinds unleashes Fury 325, the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster. Heralded as the largest, single investment in the history of Carowinds, Fury 325 will embody the fierce attributes of a hornet, boldly transforming the park’s skyline and front entrance.
New Arrival Experience
Carolina hospitality will be at the forefront next season – literally! A grander parking entrance, with new toll booths, additional entrance lanes and added parking spaces will create a much-improved traffic flow. Plus we are making way for a much larger, more spacious and more welcoming front entrance plaza. Pergolas and lots of greenery will give a nod to our Carolina heritage, and larger ticketing and Season Pass processing areas will help improve efficiencies.
New Dining Options
As you likely know, the Carolinas are all about food, and Carowinds is preparing to serve up the very best. We just welcomed an executive chef and culinary team, who will completely revamp our menus with all-time Carolina favorites. In 2015 in all areas of the park, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious, authentic Carolina fare.
New Entertainment Offerings
Certainly a Carolina staple, next year our entertainment offerings will be bigger, better and bolder than ever with an incredibly expanded live show program within the park.
