This is one of my top Cedar Fair parks! And I'm from Ohio where I'm a regular at Cedar Point and Kings Island!!
I go here on opening day every year, and it's the best opening day of any park I've ever gone to. The staff is friendly, nice, and not put-offish. They're security is amazing! They don't have the "running of the bulls" like other parks have when they open. Even when they open the parking lot up, they make sure you're in a nice orderly line to get in. MUCH appreciated!
It's family friendly, while still having some awesome thrill rides! AfterBurn is my personal all time favorite coaster... ever. They really take care of their rides, and retrack them when needed. Hurler is getting a much needed overhaul and I can't wait to hope to see it smoothed out a little bit more.
Pack a picnic lunch and eat out in the parking lot under the shade trees. Great way to save money! The park is situated right smack on the North and South Carolina border. In fact their racing coasters sit on the state line as well, adding a kind of cool factor to the place.
True this place doesn't have near the crazy awesome thrill factor as say Cedar Point, and its not near as big as Disney or Busch, but its a great simple, little-bit-of-everything type of park. And that's what makes it awesome!

Carowinds is a great theme park with an almost 40 year history and featuring rides for both adults and kids, as well as live entertainment and a great waterpark. Carowinds features 13 rollercoasters, including the historic Carolina Cyclone which set a record in the early 1980's as the first roller coaster to flip riders upside down 4 times. Interestingly, the park straddles the NC/SC border and visitors can walk back and forth between the two states.
