Carowinds is an awesome amusement park that straddles the state line between North Carolina and South Carolina. Carowinds has big amusement park rides and Boomerang Bay, a big water park too. We had a great day and night here.
Carowinds is known as the Thrill Capital of the Southeast. It has 13 world class roller coasters and many other thrill rides. It's latest coaster is Fury 325 which reaches speeds of 95 miles per hour and climbs 325 feet!
It also has Planet Snoopy for kids with 3 roller coasters, numerous other kiddie rides, live shows and meet-and-greet characters.
Carowinds is also home to many family rides. My kids loved Boo Blasters on Boo Hill. We went on it 4 times in a row!
Finally, Boomerang Bay all by itself is worth a trip to Carowinds. Boomerang Bay has many different water slides, two big wave pools, a lazy river, and water play structures for kids. We easily spent half of the day here.
