Enjoy the rides, the games. Love the water park and rides. We didn't enjoy the long wait times on some of rides, it seemed like some of the employees were more concerned with texting on their phones, than paying attention to the customers.

Carowinds is fun and exciting place to visit. It has rides for the whole family. The park offer musical shows the family will enjoy at no extra cost. And don't forget to go by the water park before you leave or purchase a 2-day ticket and come back for the water play. There is food for purchase all over Carowinds. If you are looking for adventure in one place, Carowinds is the place.

My family and I have been to Carowinds plenty of times. It's a great family oriented theme park. It also has a great water park as well.

This seems like a small park at first, but I assure you that it is huge! My aching feet can attest to that fact!! :)
There really is something for everyone in the family - from several big thrill rides to kiddie rides.
Since Cedar Fair took over, they have made many improvements, as well!
We get season's passes every year!

Typical tourist trap. You pay to park and then you pay to do everything. As much as they charge to get in the food and drink should be included in the price. What..do they think this is Disney world or something? Very long lines and having young children do not mix.
