Mega-Slides Coming To Carowinds Water Park!

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carowinds, Thrill Capital of the Southeast, is excited to bring two new breathtaking water slides to Boomerang Bay for Summer 2014.   The mega-slides are the first phase of a multi-year, multi-million dollar capital investment plan at Carowinds.  The new slides will stand over 4 stories high and add 600+feet of sliding fun, bringing new thrills and splashes to the popular water park.  The slides will offer two distinctively different rides unique to Boomerang Bay.

Surfer's Swell will travel a total of 263 feet; riders will plunge onto an angled wall that mimics the sensation of catching an ocean wave.  Guests then gracefully enter a final tunnel for a fun 'splash landing' into a pool at the bottom of this 45 foot tall experience.   Dorsal Fin Drop offers 351 feet of slide and takes riders on the whirl of a lifetime as they gain speed in a curved-tunnel that blasts them into a bowl.  Like a shark circling its prey, guests spin and swirl before sliding into the corkscrew exit. 

The slides are primed to make Boomerang Bay better than ever in 2014 as they add to its popular attractions, including two wave pools, 11 slides, and 2 kiddie splash pools with over 2 million gallons of water in total.   "Cedar Fair is committed to building more excitement and value for our Carowinds guests," says Bart Kinzel, Carowinds Vice-President and General Manager, "The slides are just the first phase of a multi year park investment plan that will continue to deliver the best-day-of-summer that guests have come to expect." 

Set to open in May 2014, construction will begin this Fall and will be documented on the Park's social media channels.  Guests who want to experience the water slides can purchase a 2014 Season Pass at Carowinds.com or at the park during any operating day.  Guests wishing to take advantage of the best price of the season will want to act before October 27 th.

Carowinds to add NEW Enhanced Dining facilities and menu.

In addition to the 2 new slides, Carowinds will enhance the dining experience and food offerings at the park with a multi-million dollar investment.  The investment will provide guests with a broader variety of food service options; additional air-conditioned venues and expanded capacity to feed and entertain the thousands of daily visitors at the park.  Information on Carowinds schedule, prices and attractions can always be found online at www.carowinds.com
