    What can I say? It's an amusement park, of course it's fun!

    Karyna Milichman · April 5

    The Fury 325 is awesome!!!

    There should of been a discount. Charging full price for half a park, that was ridiculous. If the Water park isn't available to the public yet don't rob us.

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

    It is one of my favorite places go on amusement park rides! The fury and the intimidator are my favorite rides there.

    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.

    Fury is amazing! I absolutely recommend riding on it before your day at the park is over. Gets the adrenaline pumping! Very fun.

    My profile picture was taken here that should show how fun it was.

    Great for all ages with snoopy land and things like the night hawk(favorite) and Fury 325(also favorite)

    Best place ever. I always have a great time especially with my family.

    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

    We went today (Wednesday) and our average wait time in line was about 10 mins. Some rides we walked right in while they were loading. Also free ice water!!!

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

    Marion · June 13, 2015

    Great family amusement park. Lots of good rides, especially the new Fury 325 roller coaster.

    Everything! Do NOT ride Nighthawk if you have fear of heights!!!!

    Chloe Levesque · August 20, 2014
  • Jackson K.

    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.

    Jackson Karow · August 17, 2014
  • Dana W.

    Get the souvenir cups, they pay for themselves after two drinks. Perfect on a hot day

    Dana Word II · August 16, 2014
  • Donna S.

    Not the food.

    Donna Simon · August 12, 2014
  • Ryan K.

    Pretty good rides, but not as good as six flags over Georgia.

    Ryan King · August 12, 2014

    Let's ride

    Boomerang Bay is awesome!!

    Too many kids work here. They don't pay attention to their jobs. Acting up, someone could get hurt.

    Sherry Pendleton · August 7, 2014
  • Karie B.

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

    Karie Barrett · August 3, 2014
  • Coaster Addict

    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!

    Coaster Addict · July 26, 2014
  • Coaster Addict

    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!

    The lunch prices are unbelievably expensive. We paid 63.09 for 3 slices of pizza, 3 drinks, and a kid's meal.

    Jill Carville · July 8, 2014

    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.

    Matt Rice · June 15, 2014
  • Matt R.

    Restaurants aren't great, but Chickie's and Pete's is okay.

    Matt Rice · June 15, 2014
  • Matt R.

    The wooden coasters are the best there.

    Make sure you get your picture taken even if you know you aren't going to buy it. They have a quota of 85 pics/hour.

    Do not get on Thunder Ride it gives u a HEADACHE

    Troy Squire · September 29, 2013
  • Denise F.

    Pack a cooler with lunch, get your hand stamped and eat in the parking lot. Park food is crazy expensive! Almost $60 to feed Chick Fil A to five of us in the Park, wow!

    Stay at the campground for free shuttle & 2day passes to carowinds for only $50. Per person :)

    Karen Ingram · August 3, 2013

    Fast lane passes are definitely worth it

    Horrible customer service! the wind seeker was stuck for over an hr As a result all the rides in the park were shut down. Even after every1 was let off the park did not reopen. NO REFUNDS WERE GIVEN!

Going through Yelp reviews about Carowinds can be time consuming. Foursquare tips are short and right to the point.
