Carowinds opens in late March each year and closes in early November, after the park's Halloween event, "Scarowinds". In 2005, a portion of the park reopened during December for the Winterfest Christmas festival. However, the park did not repeat the event in 2006, citing poor attendance. A similar decision was made regarding Kings Island's Winterfest.
A steel coaster that spins guests through four consecutive 360 degree loops and a 450 degree uphill helix. This 125-foot tall towering twisting serpent will send riders speeding through three inversions, including a cobra roll and a 360-degree loop - both forward and then again backwards.
Carolina Cobra is adorned with newly designed trains exclusive only to its tracks. No other parks in the United States have yet to utilize these spacious trains, designed specifically for a heightened rider-experience.
The sleek semi-open 28-passenger trains will create an aerodynamic experience unlike any other on a coaster as riders undergo the sensations of wind and speed at an amplified level, for a smooth enjoyable ride.
The tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the Southeast!
Coming in the spring of 2016! At three hundred one feet tall the newest ride towers above the earth, tearing through clouds and anyone who claims they aren’t afraid of heights. Somewhere between the stratosphere and having a blast, you’ll realize this is no tall tale, it’s WindSeeker.
