Rock the Park is a Christian Rock festival that features artists such as Skillet, TobyMac, RED, for KING & COUNTRY, and many more.
Carowinds has many fan favorite rides such as the Afterburner, Carolina Cyclone, The Intimidator, Nighthawk, and more famous in the last year - the Fury 325 - which is the world’s tallest and fastest “giga coaster.” The park also has something a little more toned down for the kids as well in the Peanuts-themed “Camp Snoopy”. And to cool off in the Summer months there is the Boomerang Bay water park.
