    Haven't been to Carowinds in a long time. Last time I went it was still owned by Paramount. The new owners from Cedar Point have really dumped a lot of money into the park and maintained it very well.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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!
