“Not what it use to be....”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Showing its age, once Paramount sold out the themes are now weird and creepy. Noticing alot more "unsavory" groups and feel not as safe.

The entire park is worth it just to ride the Dale Earnhardt ride!

“Great Way to Spend Some Family Time....”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We usually get a season pass through my husband's employer and go several times during the season. Just a fun way to spend a hot summer day and keep the little ones entertained. Make plans to spend some time at the water park too. We have also camped at Carowinds for a weekend get away with friends and family members - nice and quiet place to crash after a morning visiting the park.

“great”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

it's a little costly but you get to go to different parks; A water park and the regular roller coaster park. The food is costly!!! you might want to bring in a snack or you can leave and come back to get food. there is a few places to eat close by.
