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 think itâ€™s safe to say that we are officially ready for summer! Everyone is winding down from all the proms and weâ€™ll have graduations in the next few weeks then itâ€™s on to Summertime FUN! I will say that we are embarking on a Memorial Day weekend and I canâ€™t think of a better place to spend it than at Carowinds. Carowinds has been working behind the scenes to give us some amazing upgrades this season. I had the opportunity to attend that Plan vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena Grand Opening in March and had blast. The attractions that are now available at Carowinds will keep you so entertained that you will literally have something to do your entire visit, not that you couldnâ€™t before! The best thing is that there is something for everyone so the entire family can enjoy the park and different attractions. My family enjoyed Carowinds a few times last season during some special events like the Great Pumpkin Fest and SCarowinds. I LOVE anything spooky so there was no way we were missing that! We also had a blast in Dinosaurs Alive! Carowinds is fun all season long but, even better during special events!

Last but not least you MUST check out the ALL NEW Carowinds Mobile App! Itâ€™s available on iPhone & Android mobile devices. The new features to take advantage of are the live interactive map and get ride wait times right in the palm of your hand. I really like that you can strategically plan your visit to Carowinds on the app. You can now carry your season pass on your mobile phone, enjoy special offers and discounts inside the park; receive updates on special events and promotions. You can easily find your favorite rides, shows and restaurants. You can buy park tickets and season passes easily. Use the car finder to mark your parking spot and let the app do the work! Easily share themed photos online with your friends and family! I canâ€™t tell you how much I will be using this app during the Spring, Summer and Fall months when visiting Carowinds. Iâ€™m all about convenience and being the mom of four thatâ€™s always on the go this is a Win! Ohâ€¦ and you get free WiFi throughout the park! You can expect to see me on Twitter, Youtube, Periscope, Snapchat and Facebook while Iâ€™m on location.
