Carowinds Discussion Thread

P. 403 - Park opening for a limited Holiday Event!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, if you look at the pattern...Carowinds Vortex will happen in 2019. And then I suspect they will add a major coaster in White Water Falls spot in 2020...Hopefully a new GCI since a wooden coaster is what they need most. It will also make sense to give the park a new wooden coaster before they convert Hurler later on.

 

As for the pattern, Cedar Point changed Mantis to Rougarou in 2015 and then gave us Valravn in 2016.

California's Great America changed Vortex to Patriot in 2017 and now giving us a new coaster (Railblazer) in 2018.

Following the every two year conversion, Vortex will become a floorless in 2019 and give us a new coaster in 2020. I also think it'll probably be 2020 before we see that new hotel open. I think Canada's Wonderland's hotel will open first with them getting a brand new coaster in 2019. How do I know this? I don't. Just pure speculation.

^^ by that crap logic, you can say that hurler will get RMCed next year because kings dominion got a planet snoopy expansion and then the new hurler. So if carowinds does get a planet snoopy expansion this year, it's most certain that they rmc hurler.

 

 

did I do this right?

When you are addressing the person above you, you only need to put one ^.

Just an observation if you want to get things "right"

So has anyone else seen the post made on Screamscape relating to Carowinds and some new North Carolina law?

 

http://www.screamscape.com/html/carowinds.htm

 

They are speculating that they may have too close some rides on Monday due to a new inspection law relating to the Ohio fair accident. Not sure how credible it is but it would really be crazy thinking a major theme park having to shut down a majority of rides.

It looks like I may get a chance to make it Carowinds for the first time this September. The only problem is that based on schedule and such the only day that would be available for me to hit up the park would be Saturday Sepember 16th. I try not to make it to any park on Saturday's but this would be the only day I could make it, how terrible to Saturday crowds tend to be? Are they any better that late in the season once school is back in session?

Not a Carowinds expert but crowds won't be as bad as you think. It's a Saturday so it won't be as empty as a Sunday, but it's also a Scarowinds day so most people riding adult rides will probably be there in the evening. In my opinion. We did a weekend in October and lines were non existent during the day, granted that was a Sunday, but September is a great time to go to parks across the country if they have a separate admission evening event.

Keep in mind the park is only open 10-5 due to Scarowinds. The crowds should be manageable, however with Carolina Harbor closed for the season, it may seem busier than a summer Saturday. I think you'll be fine as long as you arrive at opening and hit up Nighthawk first thing. If wait times get crazy you could always get Fast Lane if it's in your budget, but wouldn't buy it before arriving in case it's not busy enough to warrant the cost.

This should have no effect on Carowinds at the moment. The quote states that the testing is needed to get certification to operate in the state. All of the rides at Carowinds already have the needed certificates to run. Unless the state revoked existing certifications it will not matter until next season.

Teaser # 6:

Charlie Brown gives Snoopy a new outfit...a camping outfit.

So perhaps the area will be rethemed to Camp Snoopy or a section of Planet Snoopy will be themed as such.

Carowinds once had it like that (a mini area within a larger area) before Paramount turned the whole section to Nickelodeon Central.

One thing I am wondering is if they could be adding all these additions to the area where WWL was and creating a whole new snoopy themed area? Although moving the carousel would seem to shoot that theory dead.

NEWLY EXPANDED KIDS’ AREA, PRE-K PASS TO DEBUT

AT CAROWINDS IN 2018

Expansion will bring six new attractions, including an 8,000 square foot play area

New FREE Pre-K Pass introduced

 

Charlotte, N.C., Aug. 16, 2017 – Carowinds will debut a newly expanded kids’ area, Camp Snoopy, opening for the spring 2018 season. Formerly known as Planet Snoopy, Camp Snoopy will feature new rides, a climb and play area and a more natural looking midway that celebrates the beauty of the Carolina wilderness. Also new for 2018 is the Pre-K Pass, a season pass offering free admission to children ages three to five.

 

The Camp Snoopy playtime spot will feature five new rides:

 

Camp Bus: Buckle up on the wacky camp bus and take a ride that will lift guests into the air and back down to the ground in smooth extensions.

 

PEANUTS™ Trailblazers: Get behind the wheel of a Jeep-themed vehicle and burn rubber on a small, round speedway.

 

Kite Eating Tree: Ride along in a kite vehicle that travels up and down a tree.

 

Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies: Take a trip in a “mud buggy,” where guests will rotate around the popular Pig Pen character while bouncing on a bumpy ride.

 

Woodstock Whirlybirds: Spin around in an oversized birds nest on this classic ride.

 

In addition, an 8,000 square foot climb and play area, Beagle Scout Acres, will be added. Children can explore the wide open space with three all-new features:

 

The youngest adventurers will be able to gather in a fenced-in toddler area with lots of hands-on activities.

A new play hill will be an open area for guests to enjoy slides and climb on a turf covered mound.

Playground wood structures will have hands-on interactives, slides and plenty of things to climb.

 

The child care facility and Snack Shack restaurant will receive improvements as well.

 

Also for 2018, Carowinds will introduce the Pre-K Pass, a free season pass specifically for children. The Pre-K Pass provides complimentary admission for kids three to five years of age throughout the 2018 season as well as the remainder of 2017. Online pre-registration is required.

 

“The expansion of our kids’ area along with the introduction of the Pre-K Pass puts Carowinds as a top destination for families,” said Pat Jones, Carowinds vice president and general manager. “The new Camp Snoopy area joins our world-class attractions such as the record-breaking Fury 325 giga coaster and the massive Carolina Harbor water park in offering features that meet the needs of guests ranging from three to 23 to 93, providing unique opportunities for creating family memories.”

 

Guests may purchase a 2018 Gold Season Pass at the lowest price of the year. 2018 Gold Season passholders receive unlimited access to Carowinds as well as its Carolina Harbor water park in 2018, along with free admission to SCarowinds and WinterFest, access to special passholder-only events, plus one free visit during the remaining 2017 season. The special pricing ends October 29, 2017.
