We are Platinum Cedar Fair card holders and kids that are not 54" tall do not have much to do as far as thrill rides. (Kids said 2 were ok) It might have made it worse since we just got back from Kings Island and...More

Although it is a little pricey to get in and park you can watch for coupons . They offer free ice water at any of their food vendors which I found to be awesome since it was so hot. Everyone was really friendly and the...More

Carowinds is a great park because they have something for everyone. A separate section for the toddlers allows them to avoid the larger crowds of teenagers and adults. A water park with a wave pool, slides and more. And of course they have several large...More

Things can become very pricey when added up as far as food, games, drinks, and shops go. Had fun despite the nearing thunderstorm that approached causing the rides to delay so I left. Definitely fun for the family, just be sure to check the weather...More

This was our family's first visit to Carowinds but it will certainly not be our last. The park itself was very clean with workers keeping busy making sure it stayed that way. You MUST ride the Fury 325......a few times. That is probably the best...More

We had so much fun at Carowinds!! We purchased the all day dining which was well worth it. We were able to eat every 90 mins. The kids had a ball in camp snoopy. Can’t wait to go back.

With as many offerings that this huge dry park and large waterpark offer, we were surprised there weren’t many more memorable attractions. Of their thrilling coasters only 3 are must do/ rerides. Their children’s area is also large and like the rest of the dry...More

Definitely lockers are available for personal items. I think it really depends on the ride as to whether you want to wear a small purse or anything like that. Some of the rides carry ALOT of speed. That being said I was able... More
