We attended Caromwinds with the family lat year. We had my uncle and his family in town. Well it was a hit. We got to spend time in the pool and ride the rides. Since they wete from NYC it was something they enjoyed.

We had never been and had mixed reviews. Well we will never go back. Every ride every bathroom and very placed we sat or ate was filthy. Not one employee ever said thank you....even after the ridiculous prices for horrible food. Frankly I would tell people to save their money and shop the outlets or go to Asheville or nc... More

Lets start off by, every place is what you make of it! I love Carowinds. We have season passes which if you will go more than once is a definite! I have been taking my kids since my 7 year old was 2! He loved the snoopy land. We could spend all day going back and forth from each ride.... More

I live in Charlotte and have been to Carowinds many times and have taken family when they've come to visit. It's a great way to spend some family time. Lots of rides and attractions that appeal to all ages. If you like roller coasters, there are quite a few. Mid week visits are best, if you can arrange it. Be... More

We have gone to Carowinds a couple of times enjoying the Halloween (Scarowinds) and the summertime park. Both times we had a wonderful time. It isn't an overly huge park but they do offer good rides for all ages.

You will spend some money here and it can get quite crowded but it is worth it, especially since I've spent way more and endured much larger crowds at other parks. Highly recommend!

3 out of 5 stars. Rides are good, food is typical touristy fare, kids seemed to have loved it. Best part is the race track in my opinion.

Carowinds is an awesome fun amusement park for the whole family. Whether you like riding rides or not, there is something for everyone! Roller coasters, water rides, and an area for the little ones to ride...it's all there. During Halloween, Carowinds turns into Scarowinds which is a must go. The entire place turns into haunted houses, ghosts, and much more!

Great for kids and a big teenage hangout. It's a good regional park with everything you would expect but don't go there thinking it is like Disney. Some of the park reminds you of "days gone by" and is old school. But, it's a good time. The weekends can be packed with long lines for the popular rides/attractions
