Very nice park for riding lots of rides. It would be nice if they had more shows etc or park bands for the folks that let the kids ride while they wait.

I love Carowinds and have been going regularly since 1975. Always fun and well worth the money. Scarowinds is my absolute favorite Halloween thing to do! Also the water park has something for all ages and renting a Cabana for the day is well worth...More

I was definitely not impressed with Winterfest 2018 at Carowinds. First of all it was too pricey for the children and even after entering the park you still paid for everything except the rides which were really too cold for the little ones to enjoy....More

A cute evening for date night. Probably not worth the entrance fee for one night but of you have a season pass you get in for free. Carriage rides and skating and a few other activities are extra charges and most the rides are closed.

Winterfest at Carowinds was nice. There are very few "good" rides open so all the other rides had HUGE lines. We ended up just walking the park and enjoying the lights. The park was decked out and had several areas set up to take photos....More
