This park offers all the adventures and rides you expect from a 100 acre park. A visit to the park is a must for thrill seekers, young and old.
Carowinds is famous for a new ride they introduced to the Carolinas. This 125 – foot tall towering twisting serpent is called the Carolina Cobra. If speed, twists, rolls and loops are your thing, this new ride is a must.
The newest addition is the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster in the Southeast. Beware, the “The Intimidator”, named after legendary NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, is only for the series roller coaster riders.
At its highest peak, the new ride is 232 feet, with an intimidating first drop of 211 feet. It features more than a mile of track with three eight-car trains traveling up to 80 miles per hour. There are a total of seven steep drops – one for each of Earnhardt’s NASCAR championships.
The water park opens late May for 3 months of sun filled pleasure.
