The “Thrill Capital of the Southeast,” is offering guests a new experience steeped in Carolina culture this season. From a new and improved entrance gate that overflows with hospitality to authentic, home-grown fare and spectacular live entertainment. If you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC you are in for the ride of your life at Carowinds.
TASTE OF THE CAROLINAS - Saturdays & Sundays, Now through May 17 - Carolinians know that home is all about food, so come eat, drink and experience the best of the Carolinas. Sample culinary art from nine Carolina regions – from wild boar ravioli of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains to Calabash seafood of the coast – along with recommended pairings of local craft beers and wine and Carolina-grown entertainment and special activities.
Carowinds is located off of I-77 at the North Carolina/South Carolina border. The park just launched the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster, Fury 325. This coaster goes to heights that reach 325 feet, has an 81-degree initial drop, a staggering length of 6,602 feet, and breathtaking speeds of 95 miles per hour.
This spring and summer you can also enjoy new culinary and entertainment offerings. Harmony Hall Marketplace just opened last year and serves southern favorites like Carolina BBQ, custom-made personal pizzas, meatball subs, juicy burgers, homemade baked items and more. While you dine you will be entertained by “Kickin Country,” a live show featuring some of the Carolinas’ best singers, dancers and instrumentalists.
