No more opening days, Carowinds stays open year-round

Big news from south Charlotte this morning. Carowinds is now open year round! The Carolina amusement park made the announcement on social media this morning. As of January 1, 2023, Carowinds will now operate year-round. You can check the schedule on their website, but it looks like the park will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from January through March, with a full week of spring break expected in April. Beginning the following week, April 20, the park will be open Thursday through Sunday, beginning daily operations on Memorial Day.

List: Carowinds Rides ahead of 2022 season opener

Spring is in the air and that means Carowinds season. Carolina’s amusement park opens this weekend for the 2022 season and the excitement is building! Over the years, Carowinds has become known for its record-breaking roller coasters. But that doesn’t mean they’re the only things to enjoy. There are also many kid-friendly rides. And to get you excited for the park opening, I’ve made a list of all the Carowinds rides, ranked from Might Skip to Must Ride.

For this list, I’ve left out all of the kids’ rides and focused more on those that appeal to the crowd. The kids’ roller coasters are still on the list, as are many rides that are family-friendly. Rides I’ve dropped out of include things in the Camp Snoopy area like Wilderness Run, Camp Bus, and Peanuts Trailblazers. I also left out everything in the water park and Plants vs. Zombies, which is more of a show for me. Finally the Slingshot and Ripcord as these rides require an additional fee.

That left 28 attractions. Keep in mind that this is my personal opinion and yours may very well differ. All of these rides are enjoyable and worth riding if you have the time. But if you’re limited to what you can experience, hopefully this will help you figure out what to prioritize.
