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

“Great Way to Spend Some Family Time....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 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”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 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.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Fun for the whole family. There are lots of different kinds of rides from kiddie rides to thrill rides to a water park. The food is also great! The is too expensive but very delicious!!! The water park has long lines because only 2 people can go at a time, but they are worth it.
