Carowinds’ Waterpark Opens Saturday, May 20
Charlotte, NC (May 17, 2017) The Atlantic Ocean isn’t the only aquatic getaway that North and South Carolina share. Carolina Harbor Waterpark is nestled right between the two states at Carowinds. Opening for the season on Saturday, May 20, the waterpark boasts 27-acres of splash adventures including a six-story water slide, two wave pools and a two-acre family area guaranteed to cool guests off in the summer heat.
Nominated as one of USA Today’s Top 10 Best Outdoor Water Parks in the US, Carolina Harbor has attractions for every water lover. Guests can spend the day enjoying thrilling water attractions, mouth-watering food or simply basking in the Carolina sun.
Thrillseekers can check out Blackbeard’s Revenge, our flagship six-story waterslide complex. “If you’ve got a need for speed, we invite you to brave the tubes, chutes, twists and turns of this ride,” says General Manager, Pat Jones. “The three attractions on Blackbeard’s Revenge—Pirate’s Plank, Captain’s Curse and Cannonball Drop—offer three different experiences to get your adrenaline going and keep you coming back for more.”
If that’s too fast and furious, surfers can ride the gnarly six-foot waves at Surf Club Harbor, our 27,000 square-foot wave pool. While the older kids can enjoy the rockin’ waves, beginner swimmers can get their feet wet at the water geysers on the shore of the wave pool. Far from the seas of the wave pools, children can play at Kiddy Hawk Cove and Myrtle Turtle Beach, two-acres of fun made just for the little ones. With plenty of interactive play areas and water features, parents and kids alike will be all smiles.
After working up an appetite, visit Harbor House restaurant for some Carolina barbecue or seafood. Park goers can dine outdoors on the 2,400 square foot patio. There are plenty of food and drink options, including adult beverages at
