With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, Carowinds will be opening up its world-class waterpark, Carolina Harbor, for the 2017 operating season on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Popular with the guests, Carolina Harbor boosts a number of attractions, including a 27,000 square-foot wave pool, thrilling water slides, children’s splash play areas, and so much more. In addition, the 27-acre waterpark offers a number of great dining spots. In many ways, Carolina Harbor is a vacation within a vacation as guests could spend an entire afternoon at the waterpark and never have to leave.
Looking for a great thrill? Carolina Harbor has you covered! “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.” Since it opened up, this slide tower complex is one of the most popular attractions in the entire park, especially during the peak of the summer. Guests will certainly want to slide down these fun attractions over and over again.
Kick Back and Relax!
Considered one of the best waterparks in the southeast, Carolina Harbor offers a little bit of everything. In addition to the typical water attractions, guests can relax in style and comfort in one of the waterpark’s 58 private cabanas – Standard Cabanas, Myrtle Turtle Cabanas, Premium Cabanas, and Day Club Cabanas.
Guests get two parks for the price of one – allowing guests to ride the world-class coasters of Carowinds (like the award-winning Fury 325) and water attractions like Blackbeard’s Revenge! Whether you need a break from the great roller coaster collection at Carowinds and the Carolina heat for an hour or want to enjoy the water attractions all day, Carolina Harbor is a must for anybody traveling to the Charlotte this summer.
