“Another theme park”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Everything is too expensive, they could lower their prices and attract even more people. The average person can not afford to go to Carowinds.

“Good time!”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

A little pricey to get in but a full day of fun. Plenty of coasters and entertainment. Some long lines should be expected on weekends though.

Reviewed March 11, 2012

Just your regular theme park, don't expect Disney cleanliness or attractions. The new roller coaster looks awesome though.

“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.
