Disclosure: I am a Carowinds Brand Ambassador (Caro Blogger) and received complimentary season passes to give you an all access experience to Carowinds. All opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.
I decided to take advantage of Memorial Day weekend and head to Carowinds so we can experience Carolina Harbor and some of the new attractions like the all-new 3000 Square Foot Starbucks and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena. Honestly, it was the perfect day to head to the water park with the 85 degree temperature and sunlight beaming. Who wouldn’t want to be poolside cooling off? I’m sharing a few tips to give you the best Carowinds and Carolina Harbor experience.
Tip: I suggest you check online and rent Cabanas in advance because they typically sell out on the day of and if a Cabana is rented, the renter has it for the entire day until the water park closes.
Tip: Invest in your season pass before the price goes up on June 7th, 2016 and take advantage of your early entry privileges.
Tip: Remember to use your season pass when purchasing food or merchandise at select locations so you can get a 10% discount.
Tip: Download the mobile app! It gives you up to date wait times on rides, a map of the park, ride locations, park information, event notifications, special offers and will find your car!
Tip: Get the Fast Lane Pass! If you are a little on the impatient side and don’t like to wait on long lines this is the addition you need! It really comes in handy on that FURY 325 line!
Tip: The all-new Starbucks is a great place to get a frozen Frappuccino beverage to cool off, relax and plug up your mobile device(s) to recharge.
Tip: Season Pass holders can purchase the NEW All Season Souvenir Bottle! You can receive FREE refills all day, every day during the 2016 season!
Tip: If you plan on doing Carowinds & Carolina Harbor in the same day. Spend the first half of your day in Carolina Harbor cooling off and when the sun sets and the temps drop head over to the theme park.
