Carowinds is now the home of their 14th roller coaster, Copperhead Strike, a double launch coaster with more inversions than any other roller coaster in North America. The new rollercoaster is just one of the many new attractions at Carowinds for the 2019 season.
Oh, boy! I am not really sure how to feel right now. Excited yet sad at the same time. I now have a 16-year-old… oh, Sweet Sixteen! It makes me feel old to think that I have a 16-year-old but at the same time, I’m so proud of what he has become. 16 is a bit of a scary year for me. It is the year of independence far more than any of the years prior. It is when I realize that my boy is becoming a man. To think that he will graduate in just two years is exciting yet concerning.
Don’t Miss the Great Pumpkin Fest This Month at Carowinds
Cool nights, college football, pumpkin everything and the changing of leaves all make Fall a special time! With three kids of our own (plus one foster child) one of our traditions as Halloween approaches is watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” We enjoy watching Charlie Brown and Snoopy’s fun antics as they prepare for Halloween.
When you think of “amusement park”, you probably think of a day trip, right? Me, too. Until our recent trip to Carowinds Amusement Park. Carowinds can be a full family vacation complete with days of riding roller coaster rides, water park fun, time meeting Snoopy and the gang, food (lots of food), drinks, camping in a tent, RV or a staying in a cabin, and a ton of memories without ever leaving Carowinds!

Carowinds offers tons of fun outdoors between their amusement park rides and the Carolina Harbor, Carowinds Waterpark!
