Carowinds 2014 Opening Date and What's New

When is Carowinds open in 2013? Although the temperatures may seem a bit cool for the end of March, Carowinds is set to open on Friday, March 29, 2013 with an Easter Eggstravaganza on March 29, 30, and 31. Carowinds will offer a fireworks show at closing (10:00 p.m.) on Saturday, March 30, weather permitting. Carowinds will also unveil the Dinosaurs Alive! interactive educational exhibit near Planet Snoopy with the 2013 season. The cost is $5.00/person to see the dino exhibit each time you visit that area – the entrance is near the Nighthawk roller coaster. UPDATE: The Carowinds web site is now saying that 2013 Season Pass Holders can upgrade for unlimited admission to the dinosaur exhibit for $16.

The theme park will also be open the rest of March and the entire first week of April. Families with kids out of school for Spring Break might want to check out some of the many rides, displays, and shows offered this year during that time. Several online special prices are available at this time, so if you don't already have tickets for Carowinds, it might be worth your while to look at those options before you head to the NC/SC border. If you plan to visit Carowinds several times in a year, a season pass may be the best buy. Parking is now $15/vehicle. Some season passes include free parking.
