    Any cadar fair park is good. But, Cedar Point is the best over all amusement parks!

    Obviously the park is awesome. Staff and management are horrible. The prices are ridiculous. This place was NEVER this bad when Paramount owned it. Cedar Fair has ruined Carowinds for me.

    Not many healthy options, good idea to eat healthy before arriving, bring a water bottle, and check out harmony hall for sliced fruits and salads

    The Nighthawk is the most fun, but the Fury 325 is absolutely thrilling. Skip the Cyclone.

    Water park is top notch, as are the coasters! Could use a few more flats (though the Scream Weaver is a forever favourite), but all in all an awesome park! Season pass is the way to go, too.

    Don't get sucked in by their promotions. They do a bate and switch on them once you are there. So disappointing.

    Carowinds is the only park that spans across and into two different states! We recommend that you ride Nighthawk and Intimidator first thing in the morning to avoid longer lines!

    Very solid park! The employees were very helpful, the rides very nice, and the variety of choices great! Plus, no roller coasters here require a locker! You can't beat that!

    Get on the Windseeker first. It gives you a really good view of the park, and helps you see what you want to get on next.

    Intimidator was a lot of fun, but a single-day pass is extremely overpriced considering how small the park is and how short most of the coasters are. 6/10.
